Kishami Academy has a new addition!

Nyla, our therapy dog

Meet Nyla our Service Dog in Training (SDiT).

Nyla is our 2 year-old Border Collie/Labrador mix. We are currently working on basic obedience skills, becoming attuned to the early autism meltdown stages, and ignoring distractions.

Nyla is a rescue who came to us already basically trained, but she was so unsure of what was expected with us–always waiting for the moment we would drop her off at a new home. As we reach three months of being together she is beginning to relax and understand that we are not giving her away, she is ours.

Nyla is being trained for Ms. Rachel’s youngest child, but is getting her training by working with the students of Kishami Academy.
