Chester entered our lives in May 2013 and within the first week that he was living with

us, we saw a change in our son.

Jay and ChesterJay started talking more and not just within our family,

but to others that have been on the edges of his world. This aspect really hit home for me

when Wade came to Jay’s school to do Chester’s school entry assembly. Jay interrupted

Wade’s presentation to say something to his fellow students. It was amazing to witness

Jay standing up in front of the entire school telling them about Chester. Now that Chester

goes to school with him, Jay’s school day has improved. When Jay gets anxious or

stressed, he uses Chester to help calm him and he can move on with his day. Jay has

also become more open in expressing his emotions to members of our family, both the

negative and the positive. Jay has accepted and embraced the responsibility of having

Chester quite readily and enthusiastically. He tells Chester everyday that he loves him. A

simple thank you cannot adequately express our feelings to Autism Dog Services for the

miracle that all these beautiful dogs bring.
