After much consideration and sadness, I decided to retire my beautiful Labradoodle Molly as a mindDog. She served me for 6 very long years and has been a blessing in disguise and my guardian angel. She has guided me through life and been with me in all the ups and downs, but she has also been through some very stressful situations.

I’ve spent most of my life in hospital and Molly has been there with me every step of the way. She has seen me very distressed many times and did an amazing job of comforting me and calming me down during panic attacks as she was trained to do. Unfortunately though, this eventually took a toll on Molly emotionally and physically and it started to show. I would never compromise her mental health for the sake of mine, so I listened to what she was telling me and chose to retire her. She will be 7 in June, so I’m allowing her to live her best life of a well loved companion and best friend now.

Molly passed her first PAT test with flying colours at just 10 months old and I will always be extremely proud of her for that. She has helped me through so much in life and I’m so grateful to have her. I used to dread going out in public by myself and Molly made me feel so much more confident. My anxiety levels would sore and I would have panic attacks, but knowing she was there to calm me down and ground me was so comforting and I didn’t feel alone anymore. I honestly wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Molly. She saved my life many times and she gave me a kind of love and companionship that I will never be able to replace. I am so incredibly grateful to have found Molly and experience the many beautiful adventures we had together.

I want to thank everyone at mindDog for all the support, training and understanding you have shown us over the last 6 years. It’s been a blast and I’m forever grateful to mindDog for helping me through a really rough time in my life and changing it for the better. I’m a much happier and confident person now because of Molly
