Service Dog Providers Many EDSers are considering applying for a service dog to assist them with their lives. While some people are paying thousands of dollars for one of these specially trained dogs to help them, equally well-trained dogs are available from other well-known quality training institutes at far less or no cost to the recipient. Sadly, you may not know this until after your family has raised the funds or gone into debt to buy a service dog. No matter where you apply, your physician must complete paperwork that certifies your need for this wonderful animal and you will complete both personal paperwork and pass an interview before you are considered a candidate. Several providers have been identified here throughout the USA with minimum costs of $5,000. Many of the organizations listed here provide dogs to approved applicants at no charge. Donations are always appropriate and should be made.

Service dogs can change our lives for the better in so many ways! All they ask is someone to play with them, love them, and praise for a job well done. An excellent resource for anyone considering a service dog is adionline.org.
