This page is a comprehensive list of all of our current service dogs in training and where they are currently receiving training with our staff or puppy raisers. Some of the dogs on this page have been already matched with applicants, while others are still in the evaluation phase of our training program or are too young to be matched with anyone yet. We do not even begin to match a dog with an applicant until they have been in our program a minimum of one month, are a minimum of one year old, and have passed the evaluation phase of our training.
We get our dogs from a variety of different sources and at a variety of different ages. Some come from breeders and enter our program at 2 months old, while others came from rescues, shelters, or people unable to keep their pets and will enter our program as old as 2.5 years old. Regardless of where our dogs came from, we screen and temperament test them thoroughly to make sure they have what it takes for such an important job. On average we add one new dog into our training program a week, and out of those dogs about one third of them make it all the way through our program and are placed as fully trained service dogs.
Please understand that we do not let applicants pick out their future service dog from our unmatched dogs because every dog and person's needs and personality are different. While we don't let applicants pick their specific dog, we do take the preferences they list on their application into consideration and have phone consultations with applicants before officially pairing them with a dog to make sure everyone is feeling good about the match.
As soon as our service dogs in training show signs that they aren't able to meet our requirements we release them from training and adopt them out as pets. Available Career Change dogs can be found on our Adoptable Dogs page.
