Special Dogs For Special People
Our mission is to assist physically challenged individuals in achieving an independent life style. We do this by providing highly trained service dogs specifically trained to each individuals requirements.
What Can Service Dogs Do
Service dogs perform a variety of tasks such as opening doors, turning on and off lights, retrieving objects, helping their partner dress, and by pulling wheelchairs. Other service categories include; facility dogs, therapy dogs, drug dogs, and bomb sniffing dogs.
Assistance dogs perform a variety of tasks, depending on their owners requirements. Hearing dogs, alert their hearing impaired partners to various sounds that would otherwise go undetected; such as doorbells; alarm clocks, telephones and whistling tea-kettles.
All of these dogs are extremely well socialized to perform their duties in a variety of environments, under distracting conditions.
Where Do Our Puppies Come From
Puppies come to us at eight weeks of age, donated from reputable breeders and rescued from shelters. These puppies are given extensive temperament and learning ability evaluations before they are placed in our program.
We also utilize change of career dogs that come to us from other service dog organizations. These dogs are well trained and socialized, but just like children, they need a little more time to mature. We make sure that each dog in our program has sufficient time to grow to their full potential.
