Rory's Service Dog Training

My name is Casey and I am working to get my Golden Pyrenees, Rory, trained to be a PTSD and Anxiety Alert dog.

I have had severe anxiety and panic attacks for many years.

I am afraid to be home by myself.

I panic if people get to close to me.

Loud noises are the worst. They send me from fine to a shaking mess in a snap.

How I got this way is not important but this is my life now and I want to make it better.  
Rory will be a constant companion for me so I am able to go to work, be home alone, go to church and, go shopping on my own. He will be invaluable in helping stop a panic attack before it gets bad. I am tired of trying medications after medications that never work. 

He is in training right now and has another 3 months to go. He is doing great. I get updates from the trainer and she is very proud of his progress. The full cost of the training is $3,500.

This means everything to be. Living without being so afraid all the time. Being able to relax in my own home. Gaining back a lost part of myself and getting a furry best friend in the process. 

Thank you in advance for anything you can do. Even if you just share this page on social media, thank you. 

Love Casey and Rory
