Mission Statement

DogsInVests mission is to improve the quality of life through the training and matching of service dogs with children and young adults with autism.

Description

DogsInVests has been training and placing service dogs with children and young adults with autism since our inception in 2017. We are currently training six service dogs that will be placed with individuals over the next 24 months. DogsInVests is the only service dog facility specializing in the training and placement of dogs for individuals with autism in Southeastern Wisconsin. We are also the only organization placing these service dogs at no cost to the individuals or their families. In addition to training and placing service dogs, DogsInVests also facilitates awareness-building presentations that educate children and families about autism, the benefits of service dogs for individuals with autism, and how to behave around a working service dog.

Individuals with autism can face social communication challenges and restricted, repetitive behaviors that interfere with their lives. A service dog can encourage development, provide protection from hazards, calm anxiety, and complete other traditional service dog responsibilities, such as opening doors and retrieving objects. With the help of a service dog, an individual with autism and their family can integrate more fully with their community. DogsInVests works to raise and train service dogs in a way that is customized to meet the individual’s specific needs.
