Service Dog Eligibility –

We feel strongly that the best way to set clients up for success as a team with an assistance dog is to carefully determine whether they realistically could benefit from one of the dogs we have available; We do not rush our dogs during their raising or training for placement. We also do not force a partnership. We match applicants to an assistance dog and teach how to work as a team to live life independently.
