Le Sommet in Hawkesbury is welcoming a new student! Perlin is one of many Mira Foundation puppies in training to be a service dog. Perlin is a Labernese, which is a cross between at Labrador Retriever and a Bernese Mountain Dog. He is at Le Sommet to learn to be around a lot of action, and to learn the basics of being a service dog. Social worker Jonathan Poulin is the one that is taking care of Perlin. The Mira Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that helps people with motor or visual disabilities and children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ¬†This puppy among others will be going into further training as he gets older. After 14 months of being in a foster home he will head back to Mira’s Foundation for training. Le Sommet has had three Mira puppies like Perlin pass through its doors.
