Euro Pros' Trainer, Candace Fleming (1950 - 2015) Passed on September 12th., 2015. We all loved Candace and miss her very much.
Candace Fleming (1950 - 2015), with a smile always on her face, was more than a "fixture" here at Euro Pros K-9 Center. She had been training and caring for the smaller dogs and young pups in Euro Pros' Early Learning Programs for well over 20 years. Her time here was very much appreciated, but more importantly, she enriched the lives of hundreds of small dogs and puppies.
Euro Pros K-9 Center wishes to take this opportunity to acknowledge Candace Fleming's selfless contribution, her assistance in the whelping of over 50 litters at Euro Pros and her loving care of countless young pups over the years!
We will all truey miss you, Candace!
