Stories of Independence
Chet with Service Dog Miles
Chet was raised to be completely independent, never needing to ask for help. He says it took him getting older and being honest with himself to listen to those around him and accept assistance, specifically, from a service dog. Since receiving Service Dog Miles from Canine Companions, Chet says his entire world has changed. Utilizing his feet for most things, he drops things such as his phone or keys regularly. Before, this meant climbing down from his wheelchair, but now, Miles is there to help. While retrieving items and helping with doors has been life changing, Chet says the intangible things are beyond anything he imagined.
