Here a dog fetches help for a seizure

We have trained dogs to assist adults and children as young as 5 years old with special needs such as Autism, medical and mobility issues, as well as sensory processing disorders and seizures.

This is accomplished by pairing the clients with our custom trained service dogs. These dogs perform essential tasks as well as support the client with tasks that they face difficulty in performing themselves. This allows each client to gain greater independence and peace of mind throughout their day-to-day life with the partnership.

In an effort to meet the needs of our families, it is our goal to start the training process as soon as possible. We begin working with the family as soon as they complete our simple application process and are approved for a dog.
