Service Dog Stories


Luke and service dog JediService dogs change lives. Don't ever doubt that.

With so much negative news around the world, Petjoy is committed to continuing our service dog education initiative through not only help information, but also stories from real service dog teams. These people have been touched by the paws of a service dog and will never, ever be the same.

Are you ready to be inspired, encouraged and refreshed? Are you prepared to laugh and cry? These are real stories and they need a place to be told. Please share this page via your social media accounts as well as through email. 

It's not enough to simply read these stories and say "oh, that's nice". If we want to increase recognition of just how important a service dog is, then we need to tell as many folks as possible.  

From a young diabetic who's dog is his lifeline to a childhood every kid deserves to a war veteran who's dog provides a safe haven during days filled with confusion, these are not just your average dogs.

Click on a story to the right to begin and then read away.  We are sure you, your family and your friends are going to enjoy these as much as we do.


We want your story too!

If you'd like to share your story with us, we'd love to tell it.  We prefer a photo of you and your dog as well, but it is not mandatory. Here's how to do it:

  • Write your story and get it ready for us. It should be somewhere between 500-1,000 words.  If it's too long, that is ok... we can always edit it here if we have to. (Tell us how you and your service dog, therapy dog or emotional support animal came to be together. Tell us what your dog means to you and your quality of life. What would life be like without your service dog?)
  • Say cheese! Snap a photo and attach it to your email with your story.
  • Put "Service Dog Story from  _____________ (put your first name in the blank) in your email's subject line.
  • Send your story to info@petjoyonline.com
  • Check back to this page often because your story could be the next featured story.
