Help with costs to train Ralph as my Service dog.

Some of you might know that during this past year I've been diagnosed with PTSD, I've been working with a great support system and great doctors and things are getting much more manageable.

Near the beginning of this year we got Ralph with the intention of him becoming my service animal. Then Covid19 hit and we haven't been able to get him started because of lost work.

The good news is I've recently gotten a full time job and there's much more consistency in life.

With the full time work I'll be able to pay for most of his training myself. We anticipate a total cost of training to be around $7000 over the next two years.

Ralph has passed an initial temperament test administered by the same trainer we'll be working with until he's certified.

The sooner we start his training the better it has just been hard to come up with funds for his program initiation and first month of training.

I haven't always been great at asking for help and starting this fundraiser is a huge part of helping me get over that.

If we surpass the goal any and all funds raised will go directly to Ralph's training.

Thank you so much for your consideration and helping me out.
