Review for Good Dog! Service Canines, Fallbrook, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Good Dog! Autism Companions has been a blessing to our family! Even before you apply for a dog, Laura Sylvester will generously spend 30 minutes telling you about the world of service dogs, life with a service dog, the range of service dog organizations, trainers, and anything else you ask her, as you begin this journey. All of the Good Dogs I’ve seen (including ours) are incredible in terms of their calm, intuition, and capability. Good Dog’s process is perfectly thought out and implemented. The handler training week is intense and wonderful. Our dog has enriched my child’s and our whole family’s lives more than words can capture. Good Dog is an exceptional organization run by devoted, caring, altruistic people who have been there.

Review for Good Dog! Service Canines, Fallbrook, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GoodDog Autism Companions has added to our family's lives in ways I never imagined. Our GoodDog George has developed a relationship with my daughter that has heightened her independence, her confidence and sense of competence, and the maturity necessary for being responsible for another living being. She loves him and is always proud to have him with her. As George's primary handler, I have fallen so hard, that sometimes I think he does more for me than for my child! He is impeccably trained and amazingly attuned to us and our emotions. Even my non-animal-person husband is crazy about him. Laura and Rick Sylvester have created - and tirelessly devote themselves - to a most wonderful, necessary, and effective organization. I am so grateful to them. I hope Good Dog flourishes and grows for many years to come!

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

Get them more publicity, so that they could gain broader support and be able to give away more dogs who will enrich the lives of more autistic children.
