Please keep discussions fun, friendly, and helpful at all times.

I'm 19 as well and fundraising my $5000 to get a dog from Laughing Eyes Kennel. I tried, struggled, and subsequently failed at OTing. I finally acknowledged I couldn't train a dog myself with my current state of mind. Good luck.

Okay, thanks Isaac. I'll keep that all in mind when I talk to my therapist and psychiatrist.

And thanks Maddox. I'm considering Laughing Eyes Kennels; I emailed them, and was told that Assistance Dogs United Campaign, which they are a member program of, has vouchers for people of low income. Does anyone know anything about that?

I forgot to ask, I'm looking for some literature to give to my parents, psychiatrist, and therapist about PSDs. Does anyone have any good websites, brochures, or anything that can educate?

This is a good brochure about the basics of service dogs: http://www.petpartners.org/document.doc?id=1060

A great resource is www.servicedogcentral.org

Sorry Isaac I meant it was just easer for me to Owner train cause the only program near me rejected me. I have programs also that help me feed Sadie too. But I have spent over 4-6 thousand for her and training books and equipment etc. It was not all at once and Sadie herself was $150. form a private person who Bought her form a breeder. All my exspences were not all at once.
So I guess to me owner training is cheaper.( I also got a good trainer who lowered his cost for personal training advice when I need it)

Thanks Isaac.

I would rather not owner train, so I'm looking at programs first. I've found a few that help with fundraising, and then there's the assistance dog united campaign voucher if I get accepted for that.

Okay, I've sent in my application for Laughing Eyes Kennels. Now I'm just worried about how everything is going to work out...
