Many organizations require a lengthy application and approval process, have waiting lists, and costs range from $10,00 to $35,000 for a fully trained service dog. If the client is accepted into the program, they usually do not have a choice of the dog they receive, and are not involved in the training. We rescue and adopt shelter dogs for our program whenever possible. We stand apart from many other organizations because our clients are involved in every aspect of the program, including the selection and training of their dog. Once each dog is thoroughly screened for the attributes needed in order to be trained for service tasks, the adoption takes place right away. Client and canine are a team, and go through the entire training process together.
The training is specialized and customized to meet the needs of the individual, and takes approximately 18 months to complete. We train dogs for tasks associated with PTSD, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), Multiple Sclerosis, and mobility and other physical issues. Once the team has graduated, the veteran or client is well equipped with the tools and strategies they need to continue and maintain their dog’s training. We offer continued support and resources for dog food and supplies, veterinary care, and additional training if needed. We believe in an ongoing relationship with every person we bring into our family.
