Where do we get our dogs?
Our Service Dog candidates and other rescues come from multiple walks of life and sad circumstances. These dogs are rescued from local shelters (including kill shelters), owner surrendered and other heros in our rescue network. All dogs are carefully tested (behavior, temperment, medically) before entering the program. Not all dogs are considered for service work for various reasons however almost all are still adopted out to new loving homes.
How much does it cost?
Each dog is individually evaluated and assessed for the work they are to be tasked with preforming and training costs reflect directly the ammount of time and type of training this will require of them. Military and qualified applicants are only required to pay a portion of the total costs which is left after discounts, donations, sponsorships and other applicable raised funds are applied to their training costs.
