The Service Dog Project (SDP) provides a better quality of life for the mobility impaired. SDP has donated over 100 Great Danes as service dogs to individuals who have severe balance and mobility limitations. These dogs provide a valuable service and have enhanced the quality of life for their owners.
Service dogs have been placed with children, war veterans, Mutiple Sclerosis, Friedreich's Ataxia and more. While each dog received extensive training for balance, once a dog is paired with an applicant, the dog is uniquely trained to suit their needs.
The Service Dog Project is a registered 501c3 and is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International. Located in Ipswich, Massachusetts on a 12 acre property with heated kennels, fields and a large arena, these areas provide the necessary space to raise the dogs from birth to graduation and even back for retirement if needed.
SDP is has grown to include over 70 volunteers and at anytime will be the home of 30 (or more) dogs in training. It is funded solely by the generosity of our expansive community and corporate support.
