Our dogs

Service Dogs

Our Service Dogs are trained to do tasks such as: open and close doors, turn lights on and off, retrieve a telephone or other objects, pick up dropped objects (like a bank card or keys), pull manual wheelchairs, carry items like groceries, retrieve medication and provide balance and stability to clients with mobility issues.

Service Dogs usually need to be of a larger, solid build, and are often Labrador Retrievers or Golden Retrievers.


Our Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Service Dogs are trained to support First Responders and Veterans with C-PTSD or PTSD.

These dogs are trained to facilitate wellness and social re-integration in a variety of ways. They provide important physical, calming and grounding skills. Selected for their awareness and positive response to human emotions such as stress, anxiety and fear.
PTS Service Dogs can be of any size or breed, however most often they are Labrador Retrievers or Golden Retrievers.

Hearing Dogs

These dogs are trained to alert their partner to a variety of sounds such as: knocking on the door, doorbells, ringing telephones, timers and smoke alarms. The dogs are trained to alert their partner to what is causing the sound by physically touching the person with their paw(s).

Hearing Dogs are usually smaller breed dogs (under 40 pounds), but occasionally we will train a smaller Labrador or Golden Retriever if the dog has a suitable temperament.


Accredited Facility Dogs are meant to assist community care professionals where there would be physical, social or emotional improvement with the addition of a dog and its specially trained dog-handler team.
Accredited Facility Dog Teams may work with groups or individuals of any age. There are specific goals with the dog’s involvement, and the process is documented and evaluated.
