Service puppy-in-training gets lesson at Madison fire station
MADISON, Wis. — A service puppy-in-training named Buddy stopped by Madison Fire Department’s Station 5 for a quick lesson.
Buddy is currently in training to become a service dog for children with autism. In a press release, the Madison Fire Department said Buddy stopped by the fire station to learn what a firefighter in a suit looks like, so he knows they aren’t a threat to the child he is with.

Buddy is being trained by a family through a program called Dogs in Vests that works to get dogs paired with a child in need.
