Assistance Dog Program
PWP trains service dogs for children and adults living with physical or developmental disabilities. These dogs can retrieve items, open and close doors, help remove clothing and shoes, and get help in an emergency, among other tasks.
Skilled Companion Dog
A Skilled Companion Dog is trained in specific service dog skills that will assist and support a person with a physical or developmental disability in their home. A skilled companion dog does not have public access as a service dog.
A Facility Dog is specially trained to work with a handler in healthcare settings, schools and classrooms, courthouses and other legal environments, or other places where they can provide physical, cognitive, or emotional assistance to children and adults in the community.
