About the Program
We match dogs and people based on a person’s needs, a dog’s skill set, and both of their personalities. After the pair is matched, we further tailor the dog’s training to meet the individual needs of the person.
“The impact of the service program that we have is. so much bigger than anyone could imagine because it’s not just the individual dogs and the individual people, their families get to see them thrive, the dogs are in communities that get to see them thrive, we get to work with shelters and see other animals thrive…”
Applications for the program are currently closed while we find and train new dogs and match them with the individuals currently on our waitlist.
