Landel and Olivia
Olivia and I started with a deep bond and a sit. SBF came as a possibility from my psychologist at the Vet Center. I turned in my paperwork and quickly was accepted. Olivia quickly took to her job and I welcomed the added distraction of training and having her in public places. I quickly found myself goals and doing things I wouldn’t have before. Focusing on training helped build our relationship as a team. Once Olivia started performing her tasks well Olivia turned the corner from a welcomed distraction to a tool. I don’t feel alone anymore because she is always there. She relieved my symptoms in crowds and she help tremendously when a debilitating anxiety attack stops me in my tracks. I also had an old back injury that got a lot worse while I was in the program. With the trainers help Olivia was taught a brace and helps me get up and down. I have had an amazing experience with all aspects of SBF. They have quite literally changed my life.
