    Stryders Story

    Special dog can help boy with rare case of epilepsy

    I wanted to say a quick note on why we chose to go with 4 Paws for Ability instead of other choices in our search for a seizure response dog. I have searched and searched on which was the best way to get a dog for our son and it hasn’t been easy. I began my search a long while back, prior to getting the most current diagnosis of LKS and decided on 4 Paws then. There are a lot of organizations out there that have “Free” dogs or even some where you do not have to fundraise quite as much, but all of them that I found either have a long waitlist (5-15 years), do not place dogs with children and especially not ones that will go to school with the child or they do not have seizure detection. I have got some messages trying to help and then I find myself researching all over again, only to find that 4 Paws is the best avenue for us. Most trained dogs cost in the upwards of $20,000 to raise, so asking for $13,000 is a small price to help Stryder from more brain damage.

    I wanted to site an email I got just recently from our search on a dog:

    “There are several programs that I recommend you consider.  Before I list them I want to talk about money.  If you want the best tool for your son, it is important that you are not looking for a “free” dog.  Most programs will ask you to fundraise a part of the training cost. ”
