Freedom Service Dogs enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs & custom training them for individual needs.

Client-Dog Teams

Professionally trained service dogs assist their human partners with a variety of tasks including retrieving and carrying objects, opening and closing doors, operating lights, pushing 911 and lifeline buttons, providing brace and balance while walking, and other specialized tasks needed by the client.

Service dogs are legally guaranteed full public access and are able to accompany their partners to the grocery store, airport, place of employment or school, restaurants, and all other public places.  We provide ongoing lifetime support and hands-on assistance to all of the Client-Dog teams.
