NEADS canines bring independence & assistance to disabled veterans, children with autism & people who are deaf or disabled. Our specially trained Service Dogs also work with teachers & therapists and in courtrooms & hospitals.
Jason and Service Dog Dougie
Having Dougie has been completely life changing.
With chronic pain even the smallest tasks, the ones most people take for granted, can suck every ounce of energy from you. Every time Dougie picks something up off the floor, opens a door, or gets something out of reach is a blessing.
The other piece I think about is not what Dougie does but what he is. His willingness and eagerness to help and serve is a big part of the impact that he has had. He is much, much more than a Service Dog.
