Available Service Dogs

Our service dog training ensures the safety of "dog and owner".

We provide fully trained Service Dogs to meet the specific needs of those with a disability. If a person with a disability already has a family dog that can meet our requirements, we can train your family dog for Service Dog Work.

What is a Service Dog?

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990) a dog is considered a “Service Dog” if it has been “individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability.” These dogs are more than just pets; they are companions, and often life-lines. A Service Dog will provide safety, confidence, independence, and companionship to their owner.

At Doggie Do Good, Inc. we train many different types of Service Dogs depending on the need of the owner. We also will consider training a doggie that the owner already has if that doggie is a qualified candidate for service. All service dog training includes solid basic obedience such as: Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, Down, and Leave It. We train Service Dogs for the hearing impaired and people who are wheelchair-bound, as well as for those who need seizure assistance or help with mobility and/or balance. We also train dogs for diabetic alert and psychiatric assistance. All training is completely custom. Please contact us for more information or to see if we can train a Service Dog to fit your needs.
