pranaDOGS Service Dog Program
Whether you are after a Service dog, Therapy dog or Emotional Support dog, any working dog needs 3 components to function and serve the needs you have, successfully.
At pranaDOGS we foster and train homeless dogs to work as psychiatric service dogs specifically to assist people through post traumatic stress disorder. Dogs are chosen based on their behavior, age and ability to preform the necessary tasks.
Once chosen, each dog is fostered in a home setting and initially trained in Basic then Advanced manners. Behaviors are practiced in different areas, public and private settings and with different environmental distractions. As the dogs practice and hone their skills, they are taught to preform four specific tasks:
- Stopping Compulsive Disorders
- Medication Reminders
- Calling for Help
Once trained, dogs are paired and adopted to an individual suffering with a ptsd disability. Training continues after adoption with two months of ongoing training for both adopter and dog.
