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!

Mike

Simon Ridge has been breeding quality English Labrador Retrievers since 2016. They produce beautiful dogs with amazing temperaments. I have two personal working dogs from Simon Ridge, Morgan, and Dalton. Morgan is an amazing service dog, used to educate people, perform service dog tasks, and assist with rehabilitating other dogs. Dalton is an excellent working dog, skilled in bed bug detection, and man trailing/Search & Rescue. I could not be happier with these two dogs. 

I look forward to many more puppies from their bloodline that will grow into future Service Dogs trained to assist individuals with mobility, hearing, and autism assistance.

Please contact me if you have any questions or contact them directly through their Facebook page.
