Mission Statement

Service Dogs of Florida is a not-for-profit organization that offers dignity, hope, and independence by providing highly trained & skilled service dogs and technology to individuals with disabilities while serving the community by advancing public education of disabilities, the ADA and service dogs through advocacy, education, research and service.

Description

Service Dogs of Florida, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3, Service Dog school, servicing all of Florida. We have trainers and puppy-raiser across the state and can service almost any area. We train a number of school dogs in Hearing, Mobility, PTSD, and Medical Alert and also assist owners trainers in furthering their dogs abilities.

Of the 55 million people with disabilities in the US, 5% (250,0000) have hearing, sight or an invisable condition that could be helped by using a service dogs, i.e. seizure, PTSD. To date only 20,000 service dog teams are in daily use. There is a huge demand for well-trained service dogs, as shown by the long wait lists from other schools. The people looking for service dogs often spend years following paper trails and sitting on waiting lists only to be denied. Most service dog providers have multiple year waiting lists and restrictive eligibility criteria. This school was created to help fill some that demand and reduce the travel associated with Service Dog training.
