The 2016/2017 school year is coming to an end, and everyone is graduating with flying colors. 

Late May/early June is always an exciting time of year. The weather is getting warmer, days are getting longer, and people are graduating! But degrees aren't just for humans...

Dogs everywhere are also graduating, from puppy school, obedience school, agility school, therapy school, guide school and so much more!

These pups are so proud to finally get their degrees after their very hard work.

It's been a long, tough road, filled with late nights, maybe some tears, some fun, and lots of studying. But the important thing is that special degree, and all the things learned and experienced along the way.

Congratulations Class of 2017! Here's to the next adventure!
