Keystone Assistance Dogs

Our Lifelines Have Leashes

Here at KAD we have different training options to help cater to different budgets and lifestyles.

We provide fully trained service dogs. These dogs are generally about 2 years old are are fully ready to be out and about in the world and help their handler with their disabilities. These are our finished dogs

Our partial trained dogs are generally about a year old and they have a good set of foundations and are relatively comfortable in public they do not have any finished tasks. This is a great, cost effective option for someone who doesn't want to deal with the puppy stuff but is ready to train tasks.

We also do donation dogs. These slots are incredibly limited and are only offered as partial dogs. The only costs for these dogs is for their spay or neuter, and costs for team training.
