Meet Jillian Skalky of Creating New Tails in Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jillian Skalky.

Jillian, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
At twelve years old, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I suffered year after year with harsh limitations and chronic pain. As my diseased progressed, my inspiration for a healthy life slowly dissolved. After my surgery in April 2011, being on the brink of death, I finally was able to see that although I may be alive, I certainly was not living. It was time to make a change. My first step to living, as silly as it seemed, was adopting a puppy named Rosie. My little puppy raised me out of the reality I created over the past decade. My sweet Rosie reminded me of my purpose: helping others. At the time, I did not know but by letting this puppy into my life, I was in the making of a beautiful relationship and discovery. Rosie guided me on this journey and together we found our purpose. Training Rosie is what inspired me to train service dogs to help others. Today, I have my own Kennel and have helped numerous people get their life back with the assistance of a service dog.

Has it been a smooth road?
Naturally, we have reached challenges. Training service dogs is more of an art than it is a science. Every training experience is a little bit different with each dog but in the end, we always work through whatever obstacle presents itself. Being able to give someone their independence back is the ultimate reward!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Creating New Tails – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
