We do not charge guide and service dog recipients or their families any fees for our services, which include: a guide/service dog and instruction in their use from our experienced trainers, room and board at our campus for the 7 or 21 day instruction period, a specially designed harness or jacket, follow-up care, vet care from our facilities and travel expenses.
With the increased independence, mobility, and confidence a guide or service dog provides, our clients are able to compete in the work force, participate in community activities and travel.
