What kind of physical help can a mobility service dog provide?
Each individual's situation and disability is different, so all service dogs should be carefully chosen and matched: the dog's ability according to a person's need. Most often, however, dogs' tasks fall in into basic categories:
Every person needing the help of a service dog has unique and changing physical limitations. For more than 20 years, Dogs for Disabled, a division of Vested Partners, has provided carefully matched training to working teams. Unfortunately due to funding restrictions, we are not able to take any new applications at this time.
We recommend that any individual seeking a non-profit school to train a service dog consult Assistance Dogs International for a school serving his/her particular area. ADI provides a geographic index at this link:
