Review for Good Dog! Autism Companions, Fallbrook, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Good Dog! Autism Companions is a remarkable organization that has forever changed our family in the most amazing way. Good Dog! Charlie came home to our family in July 2017 and she immediately formed the most incredible bond with our son Cade. She has given Cade the confidence to interact with his peers and increased his self esteem and confidence in social situations. Charlie makes public outings as a family so much less stressful, her presence alone provides a sense of calm for our entire family. Charlie’s ability to provide sensory input for Cade has eliminated our need for weighted blankets and weighted vests. When Charlie started attending school with Cade we noticed a dramatic decrease in Cade’s outbursts, anxiety, and frustrations in the school setting. Charlie was able to provide the redirection and sensory needs in the school setting that allowed Cade to stay in the general education classroom longer then ever before. Good Dog!’s owners and trainers are is incredibly supportive and I always look forward to our phone calls. They are quick to answer your questions, provide support, or help with a decision. They have become part of our family. I can not imagine working with a better organization. Good Dog!’s three- tier approach to matching their dogs and families is remarkable and I truly believe it is why our bond with Charlie is so strong. Good Dog! Autism Companions will continue to change lives in extraordinary ways!

Review for Good Dog! Autism Companions, Fallbrook, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I don’t think I will ever stop being amazed at how Good Dog! Charlie's presence has changed our home and Cade’s life for the better. She brightens our entire home and her love for Cade is just incredible. Watching her watch him makes my heart full. She is truly the missing puzzle piece to our family. Good Dog! Autism Companions offers endless support throughout the entire process of being matched with your child's forever friend and their training and bonding course is simply phenomenal. The week I spent in California training with Charlie and the team was a life changing experience for me. Their support is continues after your Good Dog! comes home. This organization truly changes the lives of autism families!
