My 10 year old daughter, Jody has Spina Bifida and is a full time wheel chair user and small for her age. We asked around and were given Jim's name by many reliable sources. Lola, Jody's dog, has been trained by Jim to stay with her and help as needed. The main thing that Lola is needed for, is to pick up items that are dropped. Lola's capability of doing this has helped Jody to remain independent during the past several surgeries, even though she could not bend. Lola also serves as a great companion and protector. Since Jody is small, she is not always noticed but Lola is. Lola is also able to help by warning Jody or getting her mom (Lola thinks I am an item like a phone). Lola has helped Jody in more ways than a lot of adults have ever been willing to. For all of these things, I have to say that Jim's assistance in her training has changed all of our lives for the better. Service dogs are valuable to their user and a blessing to the family for the changes and chances it gives their loved one.
Alicia and Baily
I was very nervous and scared to send my dog with a stranger to be trained. However, after meeting Jim, I felt he was the perfect person for the job. He assured me that Bailey would be safe and attended to with positive rewards. I spoke with Jim many times to see how Bailey was doing in her learning skills as well as emotionally. He assured me that she was happy and making daily progress. I now have the perfect service dog for me, thanks to Jim! I have already planned for my future dogs to be trained by him. I would be happy to speak with anyone who may be considering Jim as a trainer. Alicia in Abbeville
