Career Changes/Adopt a Dog

Here are our wonderful dogs that chose to become pets instead of service dogs.  Though, they are no longer in the program they are still in the hearts of their puppy raisers and trainers.  When a dog in training shows us that they would rather be just a friend, pet or couch potato we respect that and find them a loving home.  Some of these dogs have found homes, check back in to see updates on adoptions.  

Our career change dogs DO have adoption fees.  Our fee helps reimburse us for the dog's acquisition  and veterinary care.

Some of these dogs were assigned to clients and we need to make sure that they can have the dog they need. 

We do work with people on the fees if they are the best match for the dog.

Our fee is typically $500 depending on our investment in the dog.  Pure bred dogs tend to cost us a lot more than mixed breed dogs etc.

Because fees may very please contact us for exact fees. We can often accept a best offer if you can demonstrate that you and the dog are a good match.

Like Johnny Cash, man in black.Cash is a very lovely boy.  He was training to be a mobility dog, but the stress of public access was too much for him.  He has found a person to love him as much as he will love them.  Always at your side, he will follow you around the house, go on long runs, play ball and flop down to watch TV with you.
