Program Offers More than A Dog of Service
March 25, 2020
Not all disabilities are visible. Not all service dogs are about physical help. Sometimes, the best of service dogs match what the handler needs, not what he or she wants.
The Disability Dogs clinic held at the Cheyenne County Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday focused on matching service veterans and first responders. The clinic brought together veterans with a variety of needs. Disability Dogs founder Ashley Tomberg, of Gainesville, Fla., is a no-nonsense direct speaking veteran who focuses on matching veterans with the type of service dog a veteran needs more than what a veteran wants.
