Yesterday, we had a fantastic meeting with the owner of Service Dog Express, Laurie Gawelko, her husband Joe and her exceptional Service Dog, Bonnie. Service Dog Express was founded in San Antonio to provide training of service dogs for wounded warriors/veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and civilians with disabilities such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, manic depression, etc.  They also train service dogs for children and adults with disorders that lie on the autism spectrum, and clients with epilepsy, diabetes, hearing, and mobility impairments.  Service Dog Express also trains Therapy Dogs according to the guidelines set forth by Pet Partners, (formerly the Delta Society).  Laurie was kind enough to meet with us to discuss their training techniques and to provide us with an enormous amount of materials to assist us in our mission.  We hope to be collaborating a lot more in the future in order to bring the best Service Dog training that we can to Houston.  I can’t express how grateful I am to have met such a wonderful person with a deep passion for training Service Dogs for the disabled in order to regain their independence.  If you are in the San Antonio, San Diego, New Mexico or Central Texas areas and are in need of Service Dog training services, we can’t recommend Laurie enough.
