Mission

Assistance animals are in high demand by those persons who really need them, but few organizations really exist that can meet that demand for quality dogs with correct temperaments and real world training at exacting and trustworthy levels. The need is high, the accurate knowledge with in the public sector is very low, and we advocate for as many persons as we can help in addition to running our own program to get owner trained mobility service dog working teams trained to high standards and able to meet the requirements of a real world population of varied disabled persons.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

We are a two prong program. One part is an advocacy group dedicated to assisting existing assistance animal teams with overcoming societal, and architectural barriers or to offer training advise and or actual assistance or guidance if they need that for their current dog team mate. A team may be denied access to an ambulance ride with a guide dog for instance, and we have stepped-in, in real world time, to assist in righting the misunderstanding. We have advocated for persons with Assistance Dogs who were denied housing because they had a Service Dog. In Federally funded housing programs, that is considered discriminatory and is not allowed. In addition to educating or advocating for existing teams and the communities they live in with disability civil rights education, we have the actual training program known as High Plains Service Dogs. If the person does not have an adequate dog already, then we find, throughly test, and procures a candidate dog for a disabled person and then offer all the assistance which we can to assist the person with training their own dog by hands on help and also by teaching the person every thing they might need to know to accomplish that goal, of task training and general training of the dog, and then how to continue to research for further knowledge as time goes on. We have high standards and goals which they must meet to reach graduate status and seek certification badges from us. Our standards exceed those proposed by the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners which is the commonly accepted level of acceptable training for a human canine team.
