Amber Lenington

Amber was diagnosed with hearing loss as a young adult, relying on hearing aids for sound awareness. Hearing aids were not a perfect fix, and after a scary incident, she applied for a Canine Companions service dog. In June 2022, Amber graduated with Service Dog Cadet who helps Amber know when important sounds are happening that she can’t hear. Cadet provides environmental awareness, gives Amber peace of mind at night and alerts her to so many sounds, including doorbells, alarms and sirens. Amber lives in Irvine, California with her two daughters, ages 4 and 8 years old.
