" I was mobile before but now it’s like being on cruise control. I’m not afraid to hold the harness and go across the airport. It’s more crucial than ever for me to have a Leader Dog because I now have hearing loss in my right ear and my dog helps because I don’t always hear a car that’s approaching. "

- William Herzler
