At the Peotone fair last year I came across the MAWP booth. I was riding my scooter and went to the booth to see what MAWP had to offer. I was told that due to my mobility issues I could be a candidate for a service dog. I filled out my application and as I am waiting for my "forever" service dog, I have observed training and have shared in a good friends puppy raising responsibilities. The more I have observed this organization the more I would like to be a part of it and those they help. Having MAWP start a Midwest division (where I live) will be so helpful to the many disabled community members. Chris the director and Sarah T have been instrumental in helping my friend and I with training a puppy and answering all our questions and concerns. My story will continue on as I wait for the perfect service dog to meet my specific needs but as I continue to wait others have received their dog and have gained companionship and increased independance. I can't wait!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing training and consulting one on one with the director and the midwest trainer. They have made the long trek to where I live to meet and work on dog issues or just discuss the next step in obtaining a service dog.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see a building for the midwest division to use and have more trainers available. I would like to see more education in local clubs or schools to educate the public on service dogs.
