FINDING A DOG

mindDogs are unlike traditional assistance dogs that the public may have experienced before. We are proud to be able to certify many breeds of dogs as psychiatric assistance dogs.

APPLY

Applying for an assistance dog is not something that should be taken lightly and requires a great deal of support and time from you and your future mindDog.

ASSESSMENTS

After applying to have a mindDog, you will have a range of assessments and sessions with trainers and assessors.
