BFRB Dogs Bellie First Foster Dog
It all started with Annabelle (Bellie!), my first foster dog.

Hi! I’m Haley. This project is a 5 year plan to train and place psychiatric service dogs with individuals living with body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs), such as skin picking (dermatillomania/excoriation disorder), hair pulling (trichotillomania), etc. Later I will create a certification program for other dog trainers to help scale this cause.
