My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Canine Partners for Life, Cochranville, PA, USA
I was a part of the Fall Class in 2012. Sundance has been a miracle to me since day one, I loved Team Training even though sometimes I would get frustrated or tired there was always someone (trainer, classmate, or support person) there to help/encourage you to move forward. In those 3 weeks I gained my confidence back, made forever friends (even though I only knew them for 3 weeks, it feels like i've known them for years!), & didn't faint once thanks to Sunny! I remember being so scared to share journals, but once I did I realized there was nothing to be afraid of. During our training hurricane Sandy hit... boy was that scary, but in some ways I wasn't as afraid as I usually would have been because of Sundance! I just can't even fully put into words how much CPL has changed my life! I don't know where I would be if it weren't for Sundance and the support from CPL. They taught us all so much during those 3 weeks, trust me it's worth going to an organization to get your service dog! Not only do you get the information you need to make a great partnership even better, you have people there who understand you, who finish your sentences sometimes because they too have gone through that, you also have a great staff there to support you when you are having some bumps in the road, and you have Graduate Support classes you go to each month or so to go back over some skills, share problems/experiences, & meet new/old teams!
I would recommend this to everyone that has a disability! It will be the best decision you will ever make! Like I said, If I didn't have SUndance I don't know where I would be, and on top of that, I never would have graduated with my (high school) class in 2013, or finished my last year of dance, or even have the courage to leave the house often (because I didn't know when I was going to faint). Now that I have Sunny, i've graduated, finished my last year of dance, and I'm more confident to go out and do things!
