When we got to season 3 of the web series we decided to change things up and incorporate a different vibe and learning as we worked with Guide Dogs of the Desert. We showcased more people other than Matt, myself, and Patrick the puppy we were raising. We had one episode focused on puppy raisers and interviewed them and it turned out amazing. We also did an episode where we interviewed people with invisible disabilities. That was a game changer for us, we learned just as much as our viewers and made us realize that we could educate people on much more than just raising a guide dog puppy. There were many other types of service dogs that a lot of people had no idea existed. There were other organizations that we could talk about and introduced that owner trainers could also produce amazing service dogs. There were many other topics and issues that we could help shed light on.
Things didn’t go as we had planned during season 3 of our web series and we considered not continuing. We did take a few months to regroup and decided that we would continue, but it took us awhile to figure what new direction we should go. During the last few years others have also decided to do projects similar to ours. While we are happy that those projects have been successful we still see a lot of areas that need to be addressed. Some things have evolved in a positive way and some things have evolved in a negative way. We want to continue to educate and implement solutions that address evolving issues regarding service dogs.
Respected people in the service dog community have been introduced to our new concepts and they are giving us great input. Things are at the very early development phase. We have been interviewing service dog volunteers, organization executives, service dog users, and service dog raisers to get their feedback on what we are creating. So far we are getting great feedback and people seem excited about what we are working on. I can’t wait to share more as things develop.

Probably the biggest gift for me from the last ten years is the relationships that I have made. Because we created the web series and non profit I have been introduced to people I probably never would have crossed paths with. The friendships are very real. The things I have learned from other people have been amazing. The respect I have for other people in the service dog community has greatly increased. This is something that I won’t ever forget.
Matt and I are not experts on everything that we are trying to introduce, teach and accomplish. Our audience has been brought along on the ride of a lifetime as we continue to learn and share what we are experiencing. This is a concept that we can’t wait to continue. There is so much more for us to learn and therefore; so much more for us to share. The last ten years has been a life changing experience for us and I can’t wait to show everyone what we are going to accomplish in the next ten years.
