Canine Companions for Independence is coming through with the social isolation content you didn’t know you needed: four weeks of nonstop livestreamed puppies.
Before you stop reading and click to tune in, it’s worth it to keep reading to find out what the future will hold for these adorable four-week-old yellow lab puppies.
Like all assistance dogs trained at the organization, the puppies will learn more than 40 commands before they’re matched free of charge with children, adults and veterans with disabilities.
The organization said the dogs will assist with daily tasks such as retrieving dropped items, opening and closing doors and drawers, turning on and off lights and more to enhance independence for people with disabilities. Officials said Canine Companions assistance dogs have allowed their handlers to remain independent at home as they shelter in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Canine Companions said there are more than 400 people with disabilities waiting to be matched with expertly trained assistance dogs.
