What is a Service Dog

Service dogs differ from regular pets. To be legally recognized as a service animal, these dogs are trained to perform tasks that can help someone with a disability. Depending on the person’s needs, this can mean anything from bringing a person their medication during times of crisis to finding help during a medical emergency.

Americans With Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.

We Train Psychiatric Dogs

We Train Mobility Dogs

Mobility Dog

Mobility: These dogs are trained to assist those living with physical conditions that involve limited mobility. Many tasks are variations on foundational skills, such as retrieve, pull, and touch/push with nose or paw.

Emotional Support Dog Training

Just like “standard” service dogs, psychiatric service dogs are trained to help a person accomplish necessary tasks and protect them from harm. Psychiatric service dogs typically assist people who have mental health conditions that interfere with their day-to-day lives.

Where do we get dogs

Task of a service dog.

A psychiatric service dog may help someone with anxiety by:

  • bringing medication, or water to help swallow medication, during an anxiety attack
  • bringing a phone over during an anxiety attack, which you can use to call your therapist or other support system
  • leading someone to you if you’re in crisis
  • providing tactile stimulation, such as licking your face, to help disrupt an emotional overload
  • providing pressure against your chest or abdomen to create a calming effect during moments of distress
