Our Service Dogs
Our puppies are carefully selected from our exclusive breeder, Welcome Home Labs in Bruno, Minnesota, and their support and assistance has been invaluable! We use only English Labradors in our program, as we have found that this breed is extremely intelligent and has the best temperament to assist those with PTSD.
At eight weeks of age, our selected puppies join our training program and are placed in a special foster home for the first month. This foster family is responsible for crate training and teaching their puppy to potty on command – two of the most important training skills. They will also begin their public access training this first month to introduce them to various places and crowd sizes.
At approximately 12 weeks, the puppy becomes a full-fledged member of our training program. They are welcomed into a training foster family who will assist in their extensive obedience and public access work.
