Train the dogs to help people with a variety of disabilities and challenges
Place professionally trained dogs with professionals (teachers, physicians, counselors, legal advocates, caregivers) who work with people with various disabilities and challenges.
Provide 5-6 months of obedience training and specialized training needed for the program each dog is in
Screen each applicant for a dog very carefully to determine the person's needs, abilities, personality, life style, and ability to care for the dog
Match each dog to the best possible applicant for that particular dog
Take the dog to the client's home and train the client to maintain the dog's skills
Provide lifetime follow up help and guidance to make sure the team is achieving maximum benefit from each other
