Breeding with excellence in mind, our goldendoodle service dog prospects are carefully selected for their intelligence, temperament, and health.
In the United States, a service dog (aka an assistance dog) is a highly trained canine that is individually trained to perform specific tasks to assist individuals with disabilities. These tasks are tailored to mitigate the impact of the person's disability and enhance their independence. Service dogs are protected by federal law, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which grants them the right to accompany their handlers in public places and enjoy various accommodations. These remarkable animals play a crucial role in providing an improved quality of life for individuals facing various physical or mental challenges.
It's important to understand that not all dogs are suitable to be a service dog. Ethical breeding allows the best chances to ensure your service dog prospect has the best chance to succeed by intentionally factoring their temperament genetics, personality, and health. At Dacus Doodles, our thoughtful approach ensures that each puppy inherits the qualities necessary to excel in their service roles, providing not just assistance but improving their handler's quality of life. By prioritizing responsible breeding practices, I aim to contribute to the success and well-being of both the service dogs and their future human partners.
All service dog prospects will have priority choosing and be evaluated by our behaviorist and your trainer. To ensure we set your prospect up for success at an early age, we will select your puppy based on temperament and personality, NOT color!
Diabetic Alert Service Dogs
With a diabetic alert dog prospect, we begin imprinting with saliva from a diabetic when the puppies are three days old. This diabetic imprinting will continue for the puppies first 8 weeks before you begin professional training. Diabetic alert dogs are highly skilled and can provide invaluable assistance to individuals with diabetes. Learn more here.
Seizure Alert Service Dogs
These highly trained canines possess an innate ability to detect changes in their owner's body odor, behavior, or even subtle pre-seizure cues. Once a potential seizure is identified, these remarkable dogs are trained to provide timely alerts, allowing their owners to find a safe environment or take necessary precautions.
Psychiatric Service Dogs
Psychiatric service dogs offer a unique form of assistance by performing specific tasks that help mitigate the challenges associated with mental health conditions like PTSD, anxiety, and depression. By fostering a sense of security and understanding, psychiatric service dogs empower veterans to navigate daily life with increased confidence and resilience.
