Roxy steals the show with puppy kisses for Hollie Strano

She is getting so big.

CLEVELAND — Our girl, Roxy, stole the show when she smothered Hollie Strano in puppy kisses.

Her visit to our studios Tuesday comes as she continues the journey to become a Wags 4 Warrior service dog.

Her favorite thing to do right now? Chew on everything.

“You definitely just want to keep her away from the hands, tell her no and distract her with a toy," says handler Kayla DeLorenzo. "It’s definitely her favorite thing."

How do you stop a playful puppy from biting at your hands? DeLorenzo says consistency is key.

"Every time she tries to bite your hands or bite something that she shouldn’t, you need to be firm and say no and distract her with something else she’s allowed to chew."

Up next for Roxy... She has a vet appointment very soon as training classes continue.
