 You can help!  There are many expenses associated with the raising and training of alert dogs. We are grateful to our sponsors who provide veterinary services and dog food. However, we purchase the dogs for our families from a small breeder, who breeds for the temperament needed for a service and also for good conformation and longevity. "Your get what you pay for" and our dogs are expensive! We do various local fund raising activities, but must give our priorities to our training activities. Therefore we rely heavily

 on sponsorships. Please help!

Our Success reflects 15 years of service dog training experience. Being a service club focused on children's welfare insures the commitment of our project staff to the success of every family's dog at minimal cost to the family.

We recognize that every child's situation is unique in some respects. We regret that we cannot serve everyone, so we limit the size of our Academy to a maximum of 10 families to insure that we can customize our training to the special needs of each family.

Your child grows up with the dog ensuring all-important bonding required for reliable alert dog performance

Train Your own Alert Service dog

 The selected family receives the puppy when it is 8 weeks old. They attend bi-monthly classes to learn to train the puppy to be a successful Alert Dog. Information packets are available which:

  • Describe the process
  • Present the Academy Enrollment Agreement
  • Summarize our Insurance policy
  •  Provide an application form
