Watch for us on America Now!

What a day!  NBC’s America Now sent a crew to our facility to interview us regarding service dog training and the problem with phony service dogs that don’t have proper certification.  They filmed and interviewed for over 5 hours as we took them through the workings of how a service dog is trained.  As we currently have several service dogs in training, we were able to show them a couple of dogs trained for people with physical disabilities.  The dogs picked up dropped items as well as opened cabinets, retrieved the item requested, delivered the items to the client and closed the cabinet.  We also showed America Now how service dogs can be trained to detect allergens such as peanuts for a child with peanut allergies as well as a diabetic alert dog being trained to alert the family when their 11 year old daughter has either high or low blood sugar.

This past year we have received more and more phone calls to train service dogs and much of our energy has gone toward helping out families that desperately need a service dog but can’t afford the high price or the lengthy wait to obtain one of these amazing dogs. Dogs Doing Good is non-profit and welcomes any volunteers, young bright dogs that might potentially be candidates for service dogs and of course, any tax-deductible monetary contributions.
