The person living with disabilities has a right to:

  1. Be considered by application or consultation regardless of race, sex, religion, or creed.
  2. Receive a sound education to understand how to control their dog in public and at home, command the dog to assist them, and to enable appropriate service dog etiquette in the public setting.
  3. Receive follow-up training when needed.
  4. Receive advice for questions about their dog’s medical treatment and behavior.

We offer a lifetime of support for our recipients and their service dogs to continually provide assistance as they navigate life together.


Little Angels Program Standards

We prepare and place fully trained dogs with approved recipients living with disabilities. Little Angels Service Dogs is an Assistance Dogs International (ADI) accredited organization and we hold our training practices to a high standard. These standards ensure a higher level of assistance for the individual living with disabilities, guarantee a high quality of life for the dog, and provide safety to others in our community.

Our Certified Service Dogs Should:

  1. Be clean and well-groomed at all times.
  2. Eliminate in appropriate areas and only on command.
  3. Not solicit attention or be a distraction to the public through barking or inappropriate behavior.
  4. Never show aggression, but be confident and friendly towards everyone and everything.
  5. Perform at least three tasks to assist the person living with disabilities.
  6. Respond to obedience commands consistently.

Little Angels Trainers Standards and Ethics

Little Angels Trainers:

  • Communicate effectively and appropriately
  • Match and evaluate dog and handler teams with care
  • Demonstrate their knowledge of canine behavior through humane training methods regarding the dog’s well-being and the safety of the public and handlers living with disabilities.

It costs over $60,000 to train and place a Service Dog.
