About Us

"That is The Service Dog Institute Difference!"

Whether you have your own dog or need one ours, TSDI, is committed to customizing a service dog that is right for you and your needs.  We do not generically train our dogs, but listen to what you need in a service dog.  THAT IS THE SERVICE DOG INSTITUTE DIFFERENCE!

 

"A parent will do anything to help their child."  

The Service Dog Institute (TSDI) was founded by families with special needs children in 2009.  Who best to know the joys and struggles families experience each day. 

With the assistance of  service dogs, these families believed it gave their child (and their family) a better quality of life and realized the benefits and the gifts they bring.  


"Going beyond to help others."

While TSDI specializes in providing service dogs to children, we have expanded our placement services to now include adults. TSDI was approached in 2013 to a train service dog for a young woman and TSDI stepped up to the challenge. Today, we have placed a number of service dogs with adults with varying needs.  

In 2015, TSDI started The Service Dog for Veterans program in partnership with Dog Trainers Workshop and a local Veteran's Advocate.  Seeing the need to provide comfort to those that have served in our military is an honor and privilege.
