Founder, Brittany Harrison and Avery


Brittany Harrison started Special Pup's Program in Spring of 2016.  Her passion for connecting with the special needs community sparked at an early age where her younger cousin, Sarah was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  The communication barrier was a challenge that inspired Brittany to develop a way to connect without words. The reaction Sarah had to Brittany's dog's Avery (pictured) and Gus was incredible.  "So soft! So cute!" were some of the word's Sarah used to describe her glee. 

"I knew that if my goofy dogs could have such a positive and stress free effect on Sarah, that they could do the same for others.  So far, the results have gone beyond my wildest dreams.  I look forward to providing this experience to as many kids as we can!" - Brittany
