Catie Wolyn, just days away from starting her senior year at Rye High School, is a very busy young lady. She is active in 4H, Future Farmers of America, the Knowledge Bowl, lots of homework and a part-time job. In addition, she is responsible for training Brigit, a male Golden Retriever, who is deciding what he wants to be when he grows up.

Brigit is the second dog Wolyn has received from Kansas Specialty Dog Service (KSDS) Assistance Dogs in Washington, Kansas. KSDS began as Kansas Specialty Dog Service and was incorporated as a non-profit with assistance from the State of Kansas Department of Rehabilitation Services and additional support from individual donors. KSDS has celebrated over 25 years of service and has placed over 500 assistance teams.

KSDS trains three kinds of dogs. They train service dogs, which cover a variety of categories; assistance dogs, which assist their eventual owners with mobility issues; and guide dogs. The guide dogs assist the visually impaired.
