I AM A VOLUNTEER AT SDP- THEY DO A WONDERFUL JOB PRODUCING HAPPY HEALTHY WELL EDUCATED DOGS THEN DONATING THEM FREE OF CHARGE TO PEOPLE IN NEED. THESE DANES ARE NOT FOR EVERYBODY- AND WHEN AN APPLICANT GETS TURNED DOWN IT CAN BE UPSETTING - CAUSING NASTY COMMENTS. PEOPLE WHO HAVE SDP DOGS ARE THRILLED. SDP'S BREEDING PRACTICES ARE EXTREMELY STRICT- DEAF DOGS CAN HAPPEN IN HARLEQUIN BLOODLINES- THEY TOO ARE HAPPY HEALTHY WORKING IN THERAPY SITUATIONS-- SDP DOES NOT SELL PUPS... A FEW THAT DON'T BECOME SERVICE DOGS BECOME PETS OF THE VOLUNTEERS..THE PLACE IS SPOTLESS- AND ODORLESS..
FOR A FEW PEOPLE DANE PARTNERSHIP WOULD NOT BE IN THE DOG'S BEST INTEREST.
WHEN THE SITUATION IS RIGHT, DANES ARE PERFECT.
Service Dog Project is a non-profit that truly is making a difference in the world. Breeding, raising, and training Great Danes for service to people with mobility issues was the beginning. But the Project's availability to view on-line 24/7 has been an inspiration to seniors who are homebound, students in school, and those who want to contribute in some way to make life a little better for their fellow humans. Awarded the Service Dog of the Year in 2015, fully vetted and certified by ADI, the project is run by Carlene White, her highly trained staff, and a team of volunteers. Hundreds of people "stop by" via camera each day to check on the dogs' progress, as well as view the donkeys that have been rescued by the Equine Rescue Network, run by Ms. White's daughter, Dr. Janine Jacques. Ms. White has built not just a stunning service organization, but an online family who care for and support each other. SDP lives on donations from both its loyal supporters and businesses who recognize the value of the service that is being provided.
This wonderful non profit organization, SDP, is run by Carlene White and a staff of 40 volunteers. Carlene raises, trains and donates these service dogs. 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. There are live cams set up by explore.org to watch 6 week old pups and 6 month old pups.

A wonderful & unique organization that provides Great Danes as service dogs for a better quality of life for the mobility impaired. They have a very caring staff & volunteers that take care of over 45 Great Danes on the property.
