Meet Leo! This goofy, handsome 16-month old Standard Poodle is ready for his forever home. Leo has grown up in our service dog program, learning foundational behaviors. He knows basic cues and walks nicely on leash.
Leo is a quick and eager learner, especially after he gets a chance to play. He is athletic and loves to run. He would make a good jogging or hiking buddy. Once he’s had a chance to exercise, Leo is attentive to his handler. He would love to keep training and learning new things with you! He would probably enjoy agility, nose work or barn hunt. Leo is being released from the program due to his behavior around other dogs (some leash reactivity, resource guarding with dogs). Being an only pet is ideal for him but he sure loves his people! If you are looking for a great companion, please send in a released dog application.

TRAINING A DOG TAKES PLACE
FROM EIGHT WEEKS TO TWO YEARS MATURITY
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.)
