We encourge you to ask any specific questions you may have as bringing an assistance dog into your life is a life changing decision and an assistance puppy in training more so.and should be something you consider seriously before beginning the process. While assistance dogs can change lives in remarkable ways, they are also constant works in progress requiring time, patience, and many lifestyle adjustments.
They are living, breathing beings. This is what makes them and the bond they share with their person so very special as much as you may need them they need you as well.
AAAD prefers to train carefully selected puppies, chosen for their future role together with their life partner as a team.
AAAD believe that puppies should be used "in order to facilitate the strongest bond possible, and to ensure the dog's training matches the child's or Adults specific needs."
The breeds we use are varied but are all pick for their ideal temperament, desired traits and functionality to suit their job and their person.
