Thor knows over 40 service dog commands. Kathy has received over 80 hours of training to learn how to be his handler. Canine Companions breeds mixes of Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers for a specific service dog temperament.

Thor and Kathy worked at the Red Sox Foundation Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base program in the Intensive Outpatient Program with veterans and their families recovering from the impact of PTSD. At Home Base, Kathy and Thor started exploring using Animal Assisted Therapy with Veterans.

Since leaving Home Base, Kathy and Thor have been working in the community.  Thor is continuing to learn new commands.  Some examples are: yoga, high five, bowling, tic tac toe.
