In Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, two boys from a family were found out to be in the spectrum of autism. Their family then decided to get a service doggo. The doggo is a one-year-old white Labrador and was trained by Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers.
– A service dog was finally given to a family.
– The dog was trained by Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers.
– The family has two boys who are in the spectrum of autism and they need the dog to…
The family said that they decided to get the service dog because they wanted to help the boys “with their meltdowns, social anxiety, and get them more comfortable in social situations.” The family had to raise $25,000 because they needed $50,000 to get a service dog. The half of the amount was covered by a grant. The dog’s training is not yet done because a certified trainer will continue to work with the animal for 12 to 18 months from the time he got to his new home.
The family and the trainer hopes that in the first three months, the service dog will develop bonding and engagement with the boys and learn basic commands. The dog will be trained to respond to the specific needs of the two boys.
The family is now paying it forward by raising money to help other people in the community who need a service dog for autism, diabetes, seizures, and many more.
