These service dogs are trained to perform a wide variety of tasks including but not limited to; pulling a wheelchair, bracing, retrieving, alerting to a medical crisis, providing assistance in a medical crisis, and protection.
Pre-Qualified Service Prospect
My 35+ years of experience importing service dog prospects from the best working kennels in the world are now working for you. Only the top 2 or 3 puppies from each of these elite litters will successfully be certified as a service dog. Proper dog selection and early service puppy development (7-14 weeks) are essential to the overall success and quality of its job performance.
Mental Health Facility Therapy Dogs
Many of my referred clients are high-functioning people who are dealing with stress disorders, social anxiety, and/or other mental health issues. Our service dogs allow them to work, go to school,, and be more interactive with their communities. We have had success with placing many of these dogs in the Mental Health Living Assistance Programs, 1987 was the year Luther worked at the Special Needs housing program for Step-By-Step in the Tri-State region.
How much does it cost to receive an Assistance Dog?
Most clients receive financial support from the generosity of donors, fund-raising plans, and grant funders that allows them to provide their assistance dogs at a very low cost or no cost. However, all programs may determine their own fees for clients which could include application fees, training services, travel expenses, or related expenses. My programs provide assistance or resources to help clients raise funds to cover the costs.
Psychiatric Service Dogs
A psychiatric service dog (PSD) is a specific type of service animal trained to assist those with mental illnesses. These include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. For example, a dog may assist someone with PTSD in doing room searches or turning on lights.
