Got some Working Dog Stories to share ... then see below information of how you can help. 

Hello,

I am working on a new book project and am looking for stories.   Can you help?
 
It is early days but basically it is a book of true stories about Wellbeing, Therapy, Assistance or other kinds of Working Dogs, and how they have changed people’s lives.     I am aauthor of seven books, three of which aim to educate children about the wonderful work of Assistance and Therapy Dogs in our community.   
 
As one step to sourcing stories I’m contacting schools, childcare centres and kindergartens, as some may be aware of Therapy Dogs or Assistance Dogs amongst the local community.   If you know of an inspirational story about how a dog has changed a life or lives I would be really interested in hearing from you.   I am particularly interested in dogs that assist those with physical disabilities, autism, veterans and first responders, assist children or provide mental and emotional support  -  however ALL dog stories about dogs making a difference are most welcome.   
 
Alternately, could you please share this email with staff and even families?   Newsletters, broadcasts or any way you can think of.  That way if anyone happens to know someone with a Working Dog and has a story to tell, they can get in touch with me directly at gina@ginadawson.com   for more information.          Any help, stories or leads to get the new project up and running much appreciated.    I ask that anyone interested in participating to get in touch.
