Cleat was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. In March, 2021, Cleat was chosen for his extraordinary health and temperament to join the PADS Breeding Program. His puppies will enter our training program or the training programs of other assistance dog schools around the world.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Cleat’s village and receive monthly updates about him — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Cleat today.
