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