"Since starting and training with SSDI, I have grown so much. Not only as a person, but as a dog owner and a partner. I am more confident in public, I have more independence and I didn’t know how strong of a bond I could grow with an animal until Luna and I started training with them. I got Luna as a puppy and we started training with SSDI when she was just a few months old. They have been with me through all of the ups and downs of puppyhood to a service dog in training who is working and tasking. There were many times where I didn’t know if I would make it out alive or times I felt like a failure, and my trainer was always there to give me advice and cheer me on. I have been given the most valuable tools and training methods that I couldn’t find anywhere else or, from what I believe, from any other service dog program. SSDI is special because of their personalized approach. They understand that each team is different and learns differently. They understand that to be partners, you must develop a bond with your animal and I can honestly say that through their advice and exercises I have a bond stronger with Luna than I’ve ever had with a dog in my life. We rely on each other. She is my life line and I am her world. Since working with SSDI, I have gained the confidence needed to train my dog for service work, learn skills I never knew I had, and build a bond that I know will stand the test of time. Not to mention, I’ve grown to have such a passion for training and non-profit work! I couldn’t be more grateful to SSDI and Ashley for helping me get to where I am with Luna today, and I can’t wait to see where the future and takes us!" -Shelby
