If you can’t train your own dog registered organizations can do the job for you.
Waiting lists are usually very long and this is the reason why we like to help people who prefer to train a dog privately to be a service dog. However is is not an option if you don’t have the time and patience to do the training.
- Upon completion of this training the dogs are free to the recipients. We can send you details about autism service dog organisations.
- You need to wait between 1-6 years until they get a service dog.
- You need to accept a limited choice for dog breeds: usually Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers.
- You cannot train the dog from beginning in your home environment.
Austism Service dog – Costs: The care and assistance autism service dogs confer upon their lives of recipients is beyond price. Each of these costs $29,000 over two years to train. Applicants need to pay for a membership fee to apply for a dog.
If you get accepted you are encouraged to support the organization in some ways such as fundraising.
