Ed and Cinder

Ed and Cinder

Ed came to CPL with disabilities which cause fatigue and pain. He needed a partner to help with everyday tasks to reduce the toll that basic activities like walking were taking on his body. Not having a strong history with dogs or dog training, Ed came into Team Training worrying. But his determination and Cinder’s loving nature overcame any doubts he might have had. Before long, Ed and Cinder were practicing their daily obedience tasks in the middle of the Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market with an entire audience watching. Ed is entering a new phase of his life including undertaking a new career. With his partner Cinder by his side, the sky’s the limit.
