Willing Partners Canine Education, Inc.
My name is Jennifer. I am 21 years old and when you look at me you would wonder why I am in need of a service dog. What most people don't know about me is I am partially deaf. I have no hearing in my right ear. I have been partially deaf since 2000 or at least that is when we found out. I made it through school, which was a big feat in its self. I began working and later found out that I have some back issues. At this point in time I am still working and wanting to go back to school. To do that it requires being able to wake up in the morning which can be hard if you don't hear your alarm. My service dog will not only help to alert me to different sounds but he will also be used for mobility issues.

My name is Diane and I have been training with Willing Partners since January, 2014. In July of 2010, I was diagnosed with heart disease. My doctor suggested that I look into obtaining a service dog.

My canine "girl" alerts to fluctuations in my heart rate. Specifically when my heart rate drops. Often, I am sleeping when my heart rate drops and I lose consciousness. She alerts, attempts to wake me, and wakes my husband if necessary so the situation can be immediately addressed. Before she was a member of our household, I was falling several times a week and my heart would stop causing the defibulator to fire. Since my girl has been with me, I have not fallen nor has my defibulator fired one time!

This addition to our family is truly a godsend. She has enriched my life and given me a new purpose.
