NEADS looks at each perspective client, family member, from not only the disease or disorder, but more importantly from the specific disabilities and difficulties, including lifestyle and family surroundings. For someone such as me this is a Godsend. From the moment I was interviewed before receiving my first NEADS dog, I felt that warmth and validation. The training consists of both on site, and field trip experiences. You are able to interact, perform, and live with your new canine partner. The client is also given the opportunity to visit the prison where the pups receive their initial training and meet your partner’s inmate trainer. It’s amazing to see the dog and inmate….the love between them is palpable. The pride in the inmate’s eyes is an emotion that I’ve yet to see anywhere else. I have yet to find anything that my assistance dog partner, my friend, my confidant can’t handle. We are indeed one, we work with each other, as each other, and for this reason, I am indeed blessed. Thank you NEADS.
