Age: 6 years. Jett has been with Gwen for 4 years. He was adopted from a shelter and went through 14 months of intense training. "He is very smart..he taught me."
Pet Peeve: "Being left by himself. He likes to go everywhere."
Favorite Eats: Kibble and cat treats. "He goes into restaurants so he can't have people food."
Sleeps: In bed with Gwen.
Best trick: "He gives hugs. He climbs on you and leans on you."
Could he be pet? "As long as he has the vest you do not pet him. It's actually a federal law not to pet a service dog. (Gwen chuckles) You would not want your seeing eye dog distracted when you are trying to cross the street."
