Michael and Paddington, a remarkable story about a veteran and his dog.

 

You too can BE A HERO!

Special Thanks To:

The U.S. Department of Defense Wounded Warrior Service Dog Program

for helping Brigadoon better meet our veterans needs.

AT BRIGADOON SERVICE DOGS

we provide trained service dogs for veterans, children, and adults with physical, developmental, and behavioral health disabilities to promote a more independent and enriched life.

PUPPIES: Birth to 8 weeks -- Stay with mom. Learn bite inhibition with mom's correction and litter mates' play.

8 weeks to 8 months -- Live with volunteer puppy trainers, gets exposure to cars, children, small animals, public places, daily life. 

A very special thank you to the LINDSEY FAMILY FUND
for your support through the COVID19 crisis.

TRAINING A DOG TAKES PLACE

FROM EIGHT WEEKS TO TWO YEARS MATURITY

COST: $30,000

Most people in need cannot afford the cost, so Brigadoon Service Dogs became a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2004 in order to help bridge the financial gap. Civilians pay a third of the cost and veterans never pay. 

DOGS: 8 to 16 months -- Live with PRISON PROGRAM inmates 24/7 for daily intermediate level training

using positive reinforcement of praise and nibbles of food.

(Inmates with Denise CoStanten, their instructor -- our Founder and Executive Director.)

THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS!

DOGS: 16 months to 2 years -- Dogs return to Brigadoon's campus and do advance training. Trainers take the dogs to public places, give them lots of different experiences and teach the dogs specific cues that match up with each client's needs.

Client & Dog Match: 2 weeks TEAM TRAINING -- Teaches client what dog knows and how to handle dog in public places.

Clients end their training during the final days when they pass the Public Access Test.

Client & Dog Relationship: Brigadoon provides ongoing service for as long as the two are together.

We answer questions, provide home visits and additional training when needed, for the life of the team.
