Our Service Dog Programs
We offer two main programs which might interest those in need of a service dog. The first is for individuals who would like a dog to be raised and trained to their unqiue needs. The second program is designed to assist handlers who would like to owner train, but who would like the assistance and guidance of professional trainers. If you have a dog you would like to train with our help, then give us a call. 

Please note: we do not train guide dogs or place dogs for handlers under the age of 14.

Please also note our waitlist for our programs can be up to 3 years.

This a program designed for clients who would like a dog raised and trained to their unique needs. You will receive a fully trained service dog custom trained in up to four tasks. 

In this program, we raise one dog for service work a year, and alternate between Labradors and Golden Retrievers. Our Labradors show exceptional promise as medical response and mobility aid service dogs, and our Goldens are from migraine-alert bloodlines and excel as migraine-alert,medical response and mobility aid service dogs. Both are chosen from ethical, responsible and knowledgable breeders. 

After extensive consultation with the client to ascertain their lifestyle, needs and personality, we select a pup from the litter with the use of rigorous temperament and work aptitude tests to ensure the best match possible. We collect the pup at 10 weeks of age, and raise him/her in our home for the next 12 to 15 months.  The pup is throughly trained in basic and advanced obedience, public access and up to four task commands. Additional tasks can be taught upon discussion, and may cost additional fees.  We fly, travel via train, amtrak, subway and shuttle, and incorporate every aspect of public access we can think of. The client remains closely involved in the entire process and is able to visit or watch from afar as their pup grows into a working service dog. 

We pride ourselves in training custom tasks for our clients. The dogs in this program benefit from actively practicing performing complex tasks in a wide range of environments, and get to live for months as working dogs before being placed with their handler. A list of some of the tasks we train is below, and if the task you require is not present then we can work with you to create it. 

When the pup is fully trained and ready to be placed, we fly to our client's home and spend a week bonding them and their dog together. This is an integral part of the program, as it teaches the client how to be an ethical, responsible handler and gives them the tools to navigate the service dog world and upkeep their dog's training. This is one of my favorite parts of the program, because we get to witness service dog and handler become an independent team and embrace the world!

The cost for this program is $20,000, plus the cost of purchasing the puppy ($1,400) and their vetrinary care. The price of $20,000 is because we are dedicating 12 to 15 months of raising and training a puppy into a working service dog. We pay for the cost of their training equipment, food and boarding, and invest hundreds of hours in their socialization and training. Unlike with owner training, we assume all risk of the dog failing to succeed in their training.

Something to think about: the average health care aid costs $21,840 a year. These dogs have an average working career of 8 years, and help restore their handler's dignity and independence without the need of another person intruding into the handler's life. 

Because we only raise and train one dog a year for this program, we unfortunately cannot guarantee every applicant a service dog, and our waitlist can be up to 3 years. Please fill out our Preliminary Application form below, or give us a call if you have any questions.
