These dogs are not for every disability. Danes are perfect for many people with parkinson, ms or war injuries. if we get an application that does not fit the dog's abilities, we have to say no... this is a very unpopular thing to do... however if you have a mobility issue with which these dogs can help - they have been a huge success. and we have thousands of letters saying how the SDP has helped recipients get back to more independent living.
i am on the board of director for SDP- we breed our own dogs which are all "chipped" shortly after birth. .. these are never sold and either become service dogs , therapy dogs, or parked with family and friends for future breedings. Both MIT and Tufts have used our dogs for various studies.
