Q: Why don't you have pictures of your
teams on your website?
Our priority is taking care of our dogs in the kennels and this
takes a lot of our time so please be patient with us as we have several we work with. If you wish to see pictures of our teams
in action or training please contact us and we will direct you to the website that hosts our pictures.
Q: What type of training
is provided by Florida Service Dogs?
work with dogs for nearly all disabilities except blindness. Those who have some
vision or are vision impaired with other types of disabilities are addressed on a case by case basis. Although we are trained
and qualified to teach dogs for hearing, mobility, seizure and psychiatric assistance,
we are not qualified to train for guide work nor blind persons with service dogs.
What does it take to obtain a service animal from Florida Service Dogs?
We have worked with many people in various capacities
over the years, while many have been successful, some have not. The ownership of a service animal is a task in itself, but
to obtain one from Florida Service Dogs, Inc. is not an easy task. You must be willing to work hard and listen to directions
from our trainers as if your life depended on it because you just might someday! While we try to assist everyone
who needs our help, there are many reasons we are unable to work with everyone and though we try very hard we are unable to
please everyone. If you need references about Florida Service Dogs, Inc. and the work we provide, please feel free to
email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and what you are looking for and we will be happy to send your information to
others who may be willing to share their personal stories with you.
The process to obtaining a service animal is a very long tedious
process and not something that happens over night. A service animal is not a choice for everyone. You must like
dogs and be able to deal with the issues (physically, mentally and financially) surrounding them in order to obtain,
train and maintain a service animal. You must also be able to take the mental and physical abuse from the public
that comes with owning a service animal. You also must be able to be a confident leader to your dog through stressfull
situations. You must understand that not everyone supports or understands your reasons for having a service animal
with you every where you go in public. The public expects a service animal to act and look like a professionally trained,
well mannered, well groomed and properly dressed service animal.
