Demo Dog Sage Retires

October 4, 2016

Sage, our demo dog extraordinaire, has officially retired from her duties at CPL. Over the past 12 years, Sage has given demonstrations to hundreds of local clubs, corporations, and schools. It was her job to educate the public about service dogs, demonstrate skills, and give kisses and tail wags to everyone she met. Sage interacted with thousands of people over the years and was a wonderful ambassador for our organization.


On Monday, October 3, her official retirement contract was signed and she celebrated by eating cake and opening presents with her closest friends (both two-legged and four-legged). In her retirement, she plans to chase tennis balls, take extra naps, and help look after future litters of CPL puppies. Thank you Sage for 12 wonderful years of service!
