Penny, I will not be going to the conference. Too much going on here. My sister, PAt, died last week and I am not doing well.
Frisco is indeed a service dog. Got him from Canine Partners of the Rockies here in Colorado.
Hi Penny. Awhile back you asked me about my son's service dog journey. I came across this video on facebook this week and wanted to share this link to a film about Canine Assistants. http://www.pbs.org/dogs-eyes/film#
Hi Penny. We submitted an application for Bradley to get a service dog about 3 1/2 years before he actually got to go to a 2 week service dog camp but the time finally came around and we were able to attend in Sept. 2008. Canine Assistants in Alpharetta, GA covered all expenses involved with the trip including flight, hotel and food, not to mention getting the service dog and the costs of the two week training camp. It is a wonderful program and we are very happy to have Sky. She is a Golden Retriever. The hard part is getting home and continuing the training process. Sky is great in public places. We can go to a restaurant with her, have her go under the table and when we get up to leave people are just amazed when she comes out from under the table. This is because she is very well behaved. But more than anything she is a companion to Bradley which is very therapeutic for him. She goes with us to church when we attend about 3 times weekly but other than that, we don't take her out much. She even went to school with Bradley for awhile but after doing that for one year, the day before he started 7th grade, he decided he didn't want to take her to school anymore. I think he felt having her drew more attention with other students at school.
I believe Canine Assistants is a great place to apply for a service dog and I wish your son all the best if that is the journey he decides to take. We would do it all over again.
Let me get some information and then get back to you.
All but one child in my family is adopted and that includes John who I met when he was four. Although I tried to take John's feelings into account, I reserved the parental right to make decisions when they seemed necessary based upon input from his PT/MD/OT... And he loved red!
