C is a bright and thoughtful teenager who lives with his moms in Minnesota.

He has an inquisitive mind that enjoys researching various topics, reading non-fiction books, and playing video games. Additionally, his keen eye for detail and interest in editing complements his love of word games. His parents also share that he is fond of animals and will often be curled up with his pet dog.

C has Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Having also been diagnosed with Selective Mutism, his everyday life is significantly affected by communication, social, emotional, and sensory integration challenges as well as severe anxiety.

C is waiting to be matched to a specially trained service dog that will help him by:

  • Encouraging independence and trying new experiences
  • 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
  • Helping with transitional support between environments and activities
  • Alleviating anxiety and frustration
  • Improving his quality of sleep
  • 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!
