My name is Brennan and when I grow up I’m going to be a Hearing-Ear Service Dog. You can see from the patches on my vest that I’m still in training. As part of my training, my human is taking me everywhere with her, so I can get used to different sights, sounds, smells, and other humans. This is so I won’t be afraid of things when I’m older and I can focus on my job.
