To raise enough money to train my pup to help with my Anxiety. It would get me off medicine and get me out in public without stress.

About the project

I am wanting to be able to raise enough to train my little puppy 9once old enough) as an Anxiety Support Dog. In the UK there are no charities for such training. We have PTSD, Guide Dogs and Autism dogs but there is nothing for anxiety dogs. There is training but the cost for such training is £6000. I suffer from anxiety and struggle to go to crowded places without feeling out of place, nervous, anxious, scared and uncomfortable and I don't want this to hold me back. I want to be able to go out freely without fear or anxiety and this is where the training for my little puppy would come in. I don't want to be held back by my condition (similar to how blind aren't with using guide dogs) and I want to be able to go and do the things I love with the knowledge my anxiety won't stop me anymore.
