Trained Service Dogs

The Wisconsin Legislative Council considers service animals distinct from emotional support animals, granting stronger protections for service animals that provide a utility to their owners. All our service dogs are professionally trained in de-escalation and redirection techniques. They’re also able to recognize when a child is overwhelmed, overstimulated, or displaying harmful or repetitive behaviors.

Dynamic Training Program

When a child is selected to receive a service dog, they’ll have the opportunity to attend our dynamic training program. This program includes the child, their family, and one of our service dogs. Throughout this program, children and dogs will evolve from training partners to trusted companions that’ll live and grow side by side.
