I have worked with this charity for four years now. They provided me with a service dog after completing an application, and having a face to face meeting with the director. I also was required to provide documentation from my doctors verifying my medical condition. They selected a dog for me who I am convinced is a one and only kind. Highly intelligent, he and I stay in tune with each other.
Most recently I adopted a pet from this charity for my dad. I was charged $850 for a Great Pyrenees -standard poodle mix. I was given all the medical records and tag for her chip. She had been spayed. I took her to our vet who confirmed she was very healthy. She is a wonderful creature and will be a great farm dog in Michigan.
I have found this charity to be highly accessible with all of my questions or concerns. Both of our adoptions have been flawless, and I would recommend this charity to anyone looking for a great pet, or in need of a service dog.
Their training is all reward based, which for me is the only way to train an animal. These folks are all very patient and kind with the animals.

It took me 5 years to find an SD program that I could manage. Most programs cost a fortune or required a great deal of travel and expense. I stumbled upon PUPT and they literally created a program to help me find a K9 partner. They worked with me in multiple ways and helped me achieve this goal. Today, a year after I took on a PUPT K9 partner, my life has completely turned around in a positive direction. My little copilot goes everywhere with me, doctors appointments, school, concerts, restaurants, and is extremely talented, well trained, well behaved, and impresses everyone she meets. She quite possibly saved my life this spring by doing her job very well. I support and recommend PUPT highly! Remember this, receiving a service dog is forming a working partnership, it takes two.... the handler needs to be just as attentive to the needs of the dog as the dog is to the handler.

I have worked with this organization for 10 years and trained more than 5 dogs here. All of them therapy dogs and two medical alert dogs. I was given the best dog I've ever had from here and she is a therapy and medical alert dog. Any negatives are from people that don't work the program and think owning a dog is only about feeding them!! Dogs are a life-long, training commitment!!
Review from Guidestar
We were taken by this organization 2 weeks ago. We fill ed out the application, they never checked our references. We paid $850 for a mini ausiedoodle, they gave us her records (altered name saying the vet screwed up) We got her home and checked out by a vet. The microchip number they gave us didn't match our dog because there was NO microchip (as part of our adoption fee) Our puppy also had a heart arrhythmia, which would have been easily detected as part of her spaying a week earlier. We notified them and told them we have bonded and we expected to be reimbursed for the lack of microchip and for an appt to a cardio specialist. We were going to swallow the rest of the fees!!!!!!! They sent the rabies tag, the age was listed as 12 months or above (she's 6). Spoke to their vet and found that she was part of a large filthy litter that was given to this group. They turned around and charged $850, pure profit. Their website claims they don't take dogs with hookworms, guess what. Ours had them!!!! Another fee we have to swallow to get her retested. Their only response is to return her, and we believe they will euthanize her. Drive 12 hours round trip and additional costs. They don't care about the dog they placed or the family that has taken her in and given her a chance at a wonderful life. They are for profit only. We are putting together a BBB complaint with pages of evidence. PLEASE DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GROUP, THEY ARE MOTIVATED BY PROFIT ONLY and are placing unhealthy dogs and charging top dollar.
