Before Jai Jayy joined the family, Jacob struggled to leave the house. The only way his mum could get him round the supermarket was to put him in a shopping trolley, completely covered by his coat, and attempts to get him to go to nursery ended with him screaming the place down. 

But now Jai Jayy has qualified as an autism support dog, Jacob's life, as well as his family's, has improved in so many ways. His mum said: “Getting Jai Jayy and being involved with Support Dogs is the best thing I have ever done. Jai Jayy means everything to usWhat Support Dogs has done for Jacob is wonderful. The trainers and instructors have been brilliant. It has been a good journey; a very positive experience.”
