Good Dog, Parker!

It’s officially been one year since we’ve started our partnership with Guardian Angels Service Dogs and our sponsorship of a soon-to-be service dog!

To help celebrate the newest member of our Eat'n Park family, we asked our team members to help us name her! After over 200 suggestions were submitted, we asked our Facebook family to choose a winner. After 3,500 votes, our new furry friend was named Parker!

Parker, a former rescue dog, is now almost a year and a half old! Over the past 12 months, she’s been learning how to mitigate the effects of conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders and mobility issues through weekly training classes. In addition, her Foster Family has been working with her regularly on specific tasks including house manners and desensitizing her to public areas.

This month, Parker will finally meet her veteran recipient and the pair will go through a 10-day pairing program. During this time, Guardian Angels will make sure that the two are a good match and train the veteran on how to work with her.

Keep an eye on our blog for future updates on Parker and her new family!

Parker is such a beautiful dog. I wish her and her veteran/owner many years of happiness, love and luck together.
