If I could add, you asked a question specific to our program.
In order for someone to go through our certification, we don't test; we certify. Because of the brain injury, we don't know how long it's going to take someone to get through the program. You may be able to get through things in eight months, whereas it would take a veteran 12 months to do it because we're reformatting how they learn and remember things.
Of course we're going to have some base stuff that we do around some obedience skills, but the key thing is not to do the obedience skills. It's seeing how they are connected. Is the dog looking for direction from the handler and looking to see what it has to do for support? How is the timing and presence for both?
When we start moving into the full certification, it's three days long for us. It's three days long for a very important reason. For someone to be able to function at home with their friends or neighbours or in the community, they have to be able to manage their triggers, and some of them can be very bad. How they manage their triggers is through the skills and the development of the skills that we've shown them.
During our process, yes, we take them for a walk here and there, in different places. We take them in the environments that they need to function in. If you never go to Costco, I'm not taking you to Costco because you're never going to go there, but if you're going to your doctor's office five days a week, we're going to do some work there to see how you're functioning there. How are you in the doctor's waiting room? How are you in the doctor's office?
It's always looking at whether the team is present. If they're present, they're safe. If they're not present or their timing is off, then they can't see their surroundings so they're not safe in that environment. That means we have to go back to the drawing board and help them more for that specific environment.
