What is a CaPR service dog?
Mobility Service Dogs
Mobility Service Dogs assist people with disabilities other than vision or hearing impairment. With special training these dogs can help mitigate many different types of disabilities. They can be trained to work with people who use power or manual wheelchairs. These specially trained dogs can help by retrieving objects that are out of their person’s reach, by pulling wheelchairs, opening and closing doors, turning light switches off and on, barking to indicate that help is needed, and finding another person and leading the person to the handler.
Facility Service Dogs
A Facility Service Dog is specially trained to work with a professional who is trained by a program. The work of a facility dog can include visitations or professional intervention in one or more locations. Public access is permitted only when the dog and handler, who is a trained professional, is directly working with a client with a disability.
**WE DO NOT TRAIN: medical alert, seizure response, PTSD-only diagnosis, emotional support or personal dogs for service.
**IN SPECIAL CASES ONLY we have dogs that work with autism and PTSD.
