New program! We purchase a puppy from our group of proven excellent dog breeders and you will be your own Puppy Raiser. With our guidance through the first year you puppy will be ready to task train to your needs. You donate for this puppy that has a greater chance of making the training goals and calm demeanor required of a Service Dog. This greatly reduces the donation required to receive a Service Dog. This is only available currently to those local to our training facility.

Below a note from a client with a dog that had final finish training was done by Lorraine at Suncoast Service Dogs- migraine headaches that are a daily crippling pain that have not gotten relief from medications as well as surgery. Interference, disruption of day to day living is a disability. These were two small dogs weighing no more than 12 lbs together assisting.
Melanie did most of the work Lorraine helped refine and smooth out some bumps, good job Melanie!
Gabbana who went through service dog certification with you is doing great.
She is so happy to help and do tasks given. Recently, I had a four hour operation. I could not have asked for a more better team of dogs. I could not walk on my own for a while and was in bed for two weeks. Gabbana was so happy to complete her tasks. Things dropped from the bed and brought to me upon command; bringing items in which I pointed; alerting to my migraines, pressing the emergency button, etc.
She continues to be happy out in public...calm, confident and obedient. Picking up dropped items, and always, when on command, allowing others to pet her.
Dolce, her sister, has taken on the task of signaling my husband when I call for him. She upon command, barks, and runs into the other rooms until she finds him and signals him to come since my voice is not strong. She doesn't stop barking and circling until he is at my side. (Dolce is not a SD she did not do well in public but has proved to be a great help to Gabbana and Melanie at home).
Thank you for all you assistance and from all of us, happy holidays and a safe and happy 2015 New Year.
