Review for 4 PAWS FOR ABILITY INC, Xenia, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We received an autism-assistance service dog named Vista for my son Jamaal, 13 years old, in September of this year. Vista is trained in tracking, behavior disruption and is a constant companion for Jamaal. Training is an intensive 10 days of learning about your service dog, how to care for her, how to handle her in public places and what to expect when you get home with your new family member. The patience, support and encouragement of the 4 Paws staff is incredible. Fundraising is not always easy, it can be frustrating, training is exhausting and what happens in your real world experience can be overwhelming at times, but what makes it worth it is the incredible bond created by your service dog and your child.

Role:  Client Served & I fundraised for 4 Paws as a part of my agreement in receiving a servic dog for my son. Once this was done I participated in the 10 day training class in September.
