Certified Service Dogs
Service Dogs aid their Owner handlers regain independence socially, they may retrieve objects, open and close appliances, and open and close doors, alert to nightmares or anxiety in public. These Dog Guides are intensely trained to “activate an alert system” when help is needed by their owner. This is trained from birth and for the lifetime of the dog. Owning a Service Dog is a responsibility for the life of the Dog. The Handler owner and the dog become a bonded pair working together.
The Certified Service Dog’s ability to perform such a wide range of tasks puts Service Dog Guides in very high demand, and CTFFR Atlantic is the only cross provincial Organizations that offers an industry evidence based model, certified and calibrated for free to assist the need in our region.
