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, hearing impaired, Autism Assistance, and specialty service tasks. I have a few breeders I am currently working with that have exceptional qualities puppies with amazing temperaments and intelligence. I purchase English Labrador puppies and I raise at home them through housebreaking 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 phone, 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 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 tested 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. I am happy to evaluate your dog and if it passes evaluation and various testing, I can train or work with you to train your dog as long as all ADA requirements were met.
I currently do not train for "emotional support" aminals as they are not recognized as a true service animal.
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!
