“Kristin was instrumental in educating us about everything service dogs.  I had no idea how to go about it.  How to train one, find one, get one ADI certified…I really knew nothing about the process.  Kristin helped me get from ground zero to having an excellent understanding of who to talk with, what questions to ask, and how to work with Meredith’s school.  Canines for Disabled Kids also provided us with a scholarship to help minimize the cost of acquiring a service dog.  Kristin and Canines for Disabled Kids, gave us the confidence and insights we needed to move forward getting a life changing partner for Meredith.”
