Our Story

The Service Dog Project has provided more than 200 certified Great Dane service dogs to people who struggle with their balance and mobility. Our Great Danes are bred, raised, and trained on the SDP farm. During the first month, they are supervised 24/7 by our staff and volunteers. After the dogs are fully trained (usually when they are a year or older), they are paired with a recipient and trained to meet their specific needs. As balance dogs, they are trained to walk steadily in harness and match the handler's speed. They are also taught to stop and brace themselves in case the handler falls and needs assistance to stand up.
