Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined. - Henry David Thoreau
I spend a lot of time second guessing myself with Rowan. If we can reach the goals I have for us, if he will make it as a service dog, if I'll fail him as a handler. All the wonderful, stressful things that come with owner training hour service dog. My confidence as a trainer was destroyed by someone I thought was a friend a while back and I have had self confidence problems about it ever since. But with Rowan, and how well he is doing and how much I can see a difference in my training style with him it fights against the set doubt and second guessing and gives me hope. Hope for us as a team, hope for him to make it, hope for being able to have him by my side as I fight for my independence and health. I'm so thankful for this pup ❤️ He has been so wonderful and such a huge blessing already. I knew the day he was born that he was special but I forced myself to hold back and wait to get excited until temperament testing and evaluations were done. I couldn't be happier with this little guy. Seriously so thankful for him. I look forward to our future with hope.
