About the blogger(s): I entered the service dog community about 14 years ago when I applied to my first service dog program. Since that time I have been a dedicated member of the international service dog movement as well as the national movement. I am currently partnered with my second service dog, Shilo, who was trained for my by Summit Assistance Dogs in Anacortes, WA. We have been a team for over two years. My previous service dog, Bastien was owner raised and trained. He has been enjoying a well-earned retirement where he uses his charisma to pull off capers of retired naughtiness every now and again to remind people just how smart he is.
