Rescues into Service Dogs

Just wanted to share some videos/pictures of my service dogs in training that are all rescues! There is a very nice video of Bolt the GSD that was a rescue from Southeast German Shepherd Rescue that is now the star student!

Please click "like" on the page if you would like to get updates on our dogs progress via facebook!

Thanks for looking!

Is this your first group of rescue dogs going through? How many are you working with currently?

Thank you for posting, I will check out your Facebook, I find this very interesting that some organizations go out and also use other dogs not just their breeding dogs.

This is the first group of dogs since I founded this new organization, my trainer has trained many. Right now we have three.

It's a long process using puppies, much shorter using adult dogs and i think it's extra special to take unwanted dogs from the shelter and give them a job and a better life so that they can help someone else by giving them a better life!

Are you training the dogs and then matching them with a waiting list or going out with a particular person in mind and looking for the right dog for them?

My questions are only of interest on how your particular program is set up and not that to be correct one formula has to be followed.

Right now dogs first, we are working with another org that helps vets to match up dogs with the needs of the people.

Also the dogs can be placed any where if the need is there but we are trying to work with groups in our state so that we may play an active roll in the dogs having refresher visits.

What type of temperament and health testing do you do on your rescues? Are they tested before pulling or after training begins?

Are the dogs free of charge to the new owners or are there fees?

Do you have a website where someone looking for a dog can go to for additional questions like contract info, application, etc.?

My head trainer meets and tests every dog before they are brought in the program. The dogs and the follow up training is donated.
Website is currently in the works, like I said, this part of the org was just started so it takes a bit to get logos and the sort! I will post it as soon as it's up and running!
Thank you for you interest!! It's a good learning experience for me to know what types of questions people will ask!!
