Jan Murry Lopez CEO B.E.S.T. Service Dogs
Jan Murry Lopez has loved dogs all her life. She began breeding Labradors in the 1990’s with her first purebred Labrador, Tracey. Tracey was the perfect family dog! Gentle with children and an easy going, loveable friend. Jan wanted to be certain to have a puppy to continue the wonderful traits she had learned about in Labrador Retrievers. She found some Labrador Retriever mentors in a local Labrador club and began her education, fascination and love for the breed.
I got a wonderful note today from one of our "owner trained" service dog puppy owners today. Her pup, named "Mayhem" :-) is a sweet thing, only 7 months old and of Raven's last litter. Here is her note:
HI Jan, Thank you so much for providing wonderful service dogs! Mayhem just passed her Canine Good Citizen and her Urban Canine Good Citizen at only 7 months old! She is an absolute darling, and already does great public access work. I am so grateful to have her, and every night, she falls asleep on my lap so I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual! Happy Holidays!

"Charlie's been with our family for 4.5 years and now, I can't even remember how we managed without her. She is by far the best decision we have ever made in our parenting journey with autism. She helped make Cade love school…She has built his self confidence with peers. She provides sensory input when he's struggling. She is his very best friend. She is loved and adored by everyone she meets - she is the very best dog to ever exist.“

“Today Frances met Jack, a non-verbal 4 year old who has autism. She immediately knew to be calm and still with him. He petted her and walked around and over her and she never moved. She is completely trustworthy. She was perfect. … I couldn’t be more proud of my girl! And I will never stop thanking you for her. Thank you from my grateful heart!-“
“We are grateful every day for Jesse! We love her to the moon and back! “
“It’s been quite a journey but Yellow is nothing short of amazing and he continues to help Sebastian at home (autism dog). We love him more than words can express and he’s loving his best life as a retiree these days.”

“Every puppy class, I want to thank you for sharing your wonderful puppy with us. He is doing great and everyone loves Barley! So many puppies have all kinds of behavior issues, but Barley is so ready to please, especially for his kibble! It takes a great breeder, so kudos to you! “
“Morgan killed it at training! When I struggled and had to camp out on the ground, she immediately laid with me and kept nudging me (we’ve never trained that or had that scenario happen)…She is amazing and so intuitive. So lucky to have her in my life!"

“We love him! Not sure what magic you worked the last 16 weeks, but he is an awesome puppy!”
"Sami is doing so great with his training! He's already improved my life so much and changed my life and he's not even fully trained yet!
Thank you so much for the gift of Sonny for my son. This (VFW training) program gave me back my son! (Mother of US Army Veteran - Iraq/Afganistan)
