Our service dogs are for veterans, active military, and first responders
who have PTSD, TBI, and/or mobility limitations.
Training an NSSD service dog can be one of the most gratifying experiences of your life. However, unlike most programs, NSSD service dogs in training reside with their trainers. These are mature dogs that have had some basic obedience training. Our trainers immerse the dog in the public environment from day one preparing the dog for the Access Test. A trainer must be prepared for a dog to live with them anywhere from three (3) to six (6) months.
