In March 2016, Jason Hackett, a reporter for WPTV, featured a story of 4 year old Tyler and his family’s journey to obtain an Autism Service Dog from Canines 4 Hope, an organization that trains service dogs for people with disabilities.

The article explains how Cookie will be trained to the specific needs of Tyler including bolting and running off. For complete story, visit WPTV, Palm City service dog to assist South Carolina 4 year old on the Autism spectrum

On Sep 23, 2016, WPTV reporter Jason Hackett caught back up with Tyler and Cookie to follow up on Tyler’s journey when Tyler and his family came to Canines 4 Hope in Palm City, Florida to pick up his Service Dog, Cookie. The bond was immediate and months of training were put to the test right away as Tyler’s mom explains,

“The other day we had a thunderstorm, and usually at home when there thunderstorms Tyler melts down and is so upset,” Kimberly says. “We just put Cookie over by him and he just calmed down.”

Recently, Tyler’s mother reached out to Canines 4 Hope to let us know how Tyler and Cookie are doing since they’ve arrived home with Cookie.

Here they are the other day before school. Tyler needed some deep pressure while I made breakfast and Cookie came to the rescue and helped keep him calm while I cooked.
