Apply for a Service Dog

To begin the vetting process for our service dog program, please complete the New Applicant Packet: DAWG New Applicant Pkg.

Please fill out the forms completely and accurately; this will help our Veteran Liaison, Jeremy Mahon, process the packet as quickly as possible.

Please be advised that due to a high volume of applicants and our current funding level, there is a BACK LOG for new applicants of 3-6 months.  (Updated: 1/26/16)



Please note that the DAWG Foundation does not usually provide training for dogs currently housed with a family.  Our selection process for service dog training candidates is quite strict, and the time commitment and funding required to evaluate every dog presented to us would tax our resources beyond capacity at this time.

If you are interested in having your dog trained as a service dog, we can attempt to recommend reputable private trainers in your area.


We receive an extremely high volume of email requesting training of existing dogs; we may not be able to respond to every request.

Thank you for understanding!
