Dash is a kind, creative, and quite simply an incredible little boy.
He enjoys outdoor exploring, building Lego robots with his dad, and loves snuggling up in his favorite blanket for family movie nights.
Communication, social, and sensory regulation challenges affect many areas of Dash’s everyday life. However, his family shares that whenever there’s an animal around, his engagement increases and his true personality shines.
Dash is matched to Good Dog! Shiloh, a specially trained service dog who will help him by:
Assisting with social interactions and communication
Supplying deep pressure support and tactile stimulation for sensory regulation
Providing grounding support to help with calming, focus, and self-regulation
Reducing anxiety and frustration
Helping with transitional support between environments and activities
Improving his quality of sleep
Encouraging independence and trying new experiences
Serving as a visual reminder to others to be kind and patient
Giving unconditional love, comfort, & acceptance

Good Dog! invests an average of $32,000 to raise, care and train each dog and to educate and support each family. Currently, we add 8-10 new teams to the Good Dog! Family each year in addition to supporting our active Good Dog! Teams. That means we must raise up to $320,000 annually. To help us offset these costs, our families agree to raise a minimum of $16,000 each. Many families choose to fundraise this amount with the help of our resources and fundraising coach. Good Dog! provides families in need with scholarships to cover the remaining costs of their service dog program.
Your tax-deductible gift to the Good Dog! Family Scholarship Fund helps sustain our programs and directly impacts a family by providing a better quality of life for their child with a disability.
All gifts are received with the greatest of gratitude from us all.
About Good Dog! Service Canines
Good Dog! Autism Companions was founded in 2011 by the parents of an autistic boy. After getting a service dog for their son, they soon realized the life-changing benefits these dogs could provide to so many more. Today, Good Dog! Service Canines provides highly trained service dogs to children with disabilities and their families, helping them live better lives! Each dog is professionally trained using only positive reinforcement methods because we believe the true power of the human/canine bond is brought about through a loving, trusting relationship. Good Dog! Autism Companions, founded in 2011, has expanded its services to help more kids and families. We are now doing business as Good Dog! Service Canines. Thanks to all whose support let the love grow!
