Service dogs are specially trained to perfom tasks that help people with disabilities live more independent lives.
A service dog can help a person with limited mobility by performing a number of different tasks, such as:
Pulling a wheelchair
Picking up dropped objects
Retrieving items from a store shelf
Turnng lights on and off
Bringing a telephone to the owner
Mobility service dogs go through four levels of training in ourprogram. Levels 1-2 involve basic obdeience training; and levels 3-4 involve individualized task training and public access training.
Aspire designs customized training plans for all clients. Clients work with dogs that they own, or we can assist in finding a dog for a client.
