Kings Valley Claudette
From Pam H. Claudette’s partner: “Dear Kings Valley Collies, this is Pam H. from Southern California…I wanted to let you know that Claudette is a great Guide Dog. My students at the university admire her immensely, and my husband and son love her more than I thought possible. She is so special and I’m so thankful that she and I are partners. As I’m writing this Claudette is by my side watching the screen as I give her the body rub she knows she deserves. I just wanted to let you know that you have bred a wonderful Collie. Thanks so much,” Pam.

He is also a proud Service Dog in Training, that will one day be able to help Dennis with balance during his bouts of vertigo.
