Training a Service Dog for Laura

I need to train my dog to become a service dog for health reasons. Will you help contribute to the costs?

The money raised will go directly to the cost of Service Dog Trainer, Kirk Halma of K-9 Motivation, working with Teela.

My doctors have recommended that I train my dog Teela to be my service dog. My docs have all worked hard for a few years to try to stabilize my condition enough so I don't have to stay home and work from bed, but Teela would be the last piece of the puzzle to make it more feasable for me to get out and participate in life in person again!

Teela will have all her basic obedience reinforced until it's second nature.
Both the trainer and I will work with her in all sorts of places out and about so Teela is used to stores and houses and yards and trains and buses and restaurants and more.
Teela will be trained with many specific tasks to make it easier for me to navigate life. My doctors, the trainer, and I have a short list to get us started and will continue to refine additional tasks as Teela and I progress as a team.
