The dog costs 4 Paws for Ability $22,000 to board and train. It takes a long time to train the dog. Once the dog is selected for Sean, it is trained for his specific needs for an entire year and the family goes to Ohio for two weeks to train with the dog when they pick him/her up. It's amazing! As a family, they are committed to raising $13,000. Upon raising those funds, Sean's dog will be selected!
