Training Guidance

The turn in process varies.  The raiser can bring their dog into training, or meet up with a staff member.

We do not have a kennel environment.  All of our dogs go into foster homes upon entering into formal training.

Every month the raiser will receive a dog report updating them on the dog's process.


We do have a graduation ceremony once a dog is placed.  Here, our raisers get a chance to meet the new handler.


Small, family-like organization with leadership that has experience with larger non-profits and service dog institutions. This creates a collaborative and family-like team environment with an unsurpassed level of professionalism.
