So you want a service dog.
Do you, though? Most entering this life don’t understand these aren’t just dogs that can go anywhere. It's training that costs thousands of dollars and takes nearly two years.
Are you going to owner-train, have a puppy raiser, or buy a fully-trained dog? If it's either of the first two, are you ready for puppyhood? Dogs aren't born service dogs; they experience the frustrations of puppyhood, too. Are you prepared for the chance of dog washing or early retirement?
Which breed are you getting? Rescue or breeder?
In Six Feet to Independence, Lauryn walks through the answers to these questions and more. With insights from breeders, trainers, and other handlers, she hopes to help you determine if this is the right path for you. Written from her own experiences, Lauryn’s conversational style puts readers at ease in facing this challenging lifestyle change.
Lauryn Walton is a young woman who enjoys bouncing back and forth between dog sitting in Texas and tutoring in Wisconsin, and drowning herself in words. Her travel companion is, as always, her fluffy service sidekick who may, sometimes, think she's his sidekick.
Lauryn enjoys nothing more than starting a new story--whether through writing or reading and pulling stories from her imaginary friends. Whether they will take their leave from her mind when she is finished telling their stories is yet to be discovered, but highly unlikely.
Her first book, Six Feet to Independence, became the number one Amazon new release in its category.
