How Service Dogs Change Lives – An Interview Val Cairney
In This Episode I have the pleasure of interviewing Stephanie Ridley, whose son is a recipient of an Autism Response Dog, called Beaumont. So, please join me as Stephanie reveals the incredible role Beaumont plays not only in the life of her son Ewan, but in that of her family too.
We’ll also gain insight into the training this wonderful dog went through, as well as some of the obstacles faced when out and about in public. At the end of it all, this is a story of a boy, his dog, and the life adventure that they have both set out on together, all of which was made possible thanks to National Service Dogs.

Thanks to Stephanie for providing these wonderful photographs of Ewan and Beaumont. As they say. a picture paints a thousand words. (Bet you thought I was going to say “Knowing Is Caring.”)
