Otter Deiters - Resident Grief Therapy Dog
Otter joined the Deiters family in November of 2013. He was born in July 2012 at Leader Dogs for the Blind, in an Iowa prison. After his year of puppy raising in Iowa prison and his Leader Dog evaluation, he was released from the program due to a mild limp. Our family was once again blessed to receive another amazing dog from this program. Otter and Stephanie Deiters completed both the beginner and intermediate training classes at Heartland Dog Training, where he was awarded with his Good Citizenship Award. He is a registered Therapy Dog and is a wonderful asset to Deiters Pet Services & Crematory. He enjoys attending funerals and meeting new people.
