The Service Dog Project (SDP) has donated over 160 Great Dane service dogs to people with balance issues due to neurological diseases or war injuries to assist them in achieving greater independence. Our working service dogs have received extensive training for balance and mobility. We consider our dogs well educated so once a dog is paired with an applicant the dog continues to adjust to the needs of their partner. Our Great Danes provide a valuable service and enhance the quality of life for their partners.
Veterans, first responders, and their families are given first preference for a service dog.
Service Dog Project Inc. is a registered 501c3 and is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International.
SDP is located on a 12 acre property with fields for the dogs to play and a large arena for training. All kennels are heated and air conditioned with in/out doors and 2nd story sleeping lofts. These areas provide the necessary space to raise the dogs from birth through graduation and even back for retirement as needed. All puppies reside at the farm not with 'at home' puppy raisers. SDP has grown to include over 110 volunteers and at any time can be the home of up to 30 dogs or more in training.
Donations to Service Dog Project go directly to the care and training of our dogs. SDP is also most notably funded by the generosity of our expansive community of individuals, known as the Camera People, whose live viewing of the farm is made possible by the 24/7/365 cameras of Dog Bless You & Explore.org. We also thank the The Cummings Foundation and The Tower of Hope for their generosity. Click on the foundation's name to learn more about them.
