Join The Family

When you apply for a service dog from our program you are applying for a life changing companionship like no other. This process is not immediate and requires an immense amount of patience as we work to review and assess, match and place you with the most suitable partner.  The process will definitely come with some challenges as you will be learning to work alongside a living, breathing four legged helpmate. We strive to ensure that the client, dogs and public are safe. As such this is why we have very stringent approval process around our accepted clients (both children and adults) and who can be accepted into the owner assisted trained program.  


Ready to get started? 

Take Our Self Assessment to see if you qualify for our program before you start the application process. If you are unsure of whether or not a service or guide is suitable tool for your lifestyle and needs, this quiz can help you determine if you are a candidate.
