If You Need A Service Dog

If you or a family member is in need of a Service dog, please contact me for additional information and an application. I raise puppies and train service dogs for mobility assistance, mobility support, hearing impairment, Tourette's Assistance, Autism Assistance, PTSD, seizure alert, seizure detection, and specialty service tasks. I do not train seeing-eye dogs or diabetic alert dogs at this time.

I have a few breeders I am currently working with that have exceptional quality puppies with amazing temperaments and intelligence. I purchase English Labrador puppies and Newfypoo puppies and my wife and I raise them in our home. They are socialized with each other and our other pets, housebroken, take on weekly outings, and attend all the AKC Classes as well. Then they begin task training and perfecting their skillset.

There is an average of 6-month to a 1.5-year waiting list for one of my trained service dogs. I know other breeders of high-quality standards that specialize in Standard Poodles and Doodle blends if you prefer a hypoallergenic dog or if you have a special preference of breed or color, please know, there may be a little longer delay depending on the availability of puppies.

A service dog can bring independence, confidence, and security by Alerting for alarms, timers, or phones, opening doors, picking up dropped objects, assisting in maneuvering through a crowd, tethering to a child with the ability for an emergency stop, or providing deep pressure therapy. The Service Dog is personalized and tailored to your needs.

I can provide you with a dog that will fill your need and fill your life with love and affection too.

I do follow ADA guidelines when placing my trained service dogs.  These guidelines include the individual must have a diagnosed physical disability or anxiety distorter or chronic illness affecting at least one limb.  When choosing a puppy to be a service dog, I begin evaluating and testing at 4-weeks of age and continue throughout the training process. If at anytime a dog in training exhibits any aggression, resource guarding, fears, separation anxiety, or other behavior issues that would hinder their performance - the dog is retired out of the program and placed in a loving pet home. Every dog can be a loving pet, a small percentage can be a successful service dog. I take great pride in the dogs I raise/train and I feel you will see that special quality in them as well.

There is an application process for a service dog, please contact me if you would like to begin the application process.

I often get asked to train an individual's dog to become a service dog, it does take more than a loving pet to be a service dog. Unfortunately, most family pets do not have the foundation to successfully navigate the Service Dog demands. Please contact me for more information if you feel your pet meets the requirements and are considering having them trained as your service dog. 

I currently do not train for "emotional support" aminals as they are not recognized by ADA as true service animals. 

Please let me know if you would like more information, I would love to discuss your needs and schedule an appointment for you to meet one of my dogs in training.

Thanks so much!

Mike

I want to say a Huge Thank You to Puckett EMS / Puckett EMS TN / N.GA and Keith Riddle for the much appreciated donation of a CPR Dummy to assist with service dog task training!

This CPR Dummy will be a great addition to my training program for Deep Pressure Therapy - the pups in training will really benefit from it!

Charlie was happy to accompany on the trip to Puckett Ems Station 10 in Dunlap!

Thank you again!
