Jennifer With Max and Yogi

Yogi is the only one in this picture who is going stir-crazy during this pandemic. After more than two years of specialized training, Yogi loves his job assisting Jennifer with mobility independence. Jennifer and Max have much more experience with the work-from-home life. Originally from the St. Louis nonprofit organization Duo, Yogi (Berra) was part of a service dog litter named after famous people from that city. Yogi knows more than 40 commands, many of which help Jennifer compensate for effects of multiple sclerosis. Like many humans, Yogi is now learning new ways to stay mentally and physically engaged without working and socializing in public.
