paws4people trains three types of dogs: Assistance Dogs, Facility Dogs, and Emotional Support Dogs:

TYPES OF DOGS TRAINED

Assistance Dogs:
Dogs that are trained to perform a minimum of three (3) tasks to mitigate the effects of an individual’s physical, neurological, psychological, or other medical related disability or disabilities. The Assistance Dog provides help in conducting everyday life skills, thus enabling the Private Placement Client (PPC) to perform more independently than they otherwise would without their Assistance Dog.

Facility Dogs:
Dogs that are trained, certified and placed with a specific individual who will use the Facility Dog within his/her profession and/or volunteer activities to provide educational instruction or therapeutic interventions, medical or environmental aid, methodologies to students with “special needs”, or support to individuals with a physical, neurological, psychological, or other medical related disability or disabilities.

Emotional Support Dogs:
Dogs that are specially trained to provide comfort to their handler(s) within their own home and other dog-friendly environments.
