The founders of IDEA Service Dogs believe that many physically challenged people can achieve improved quality of life through the addition of a service dog. Dogs in the IDEA service dog program are raised in the student’s home and trained by the student, and sometimes an additional family member, under the guidance of professional trainers.
IDEA Service Dogs is a 501(c)3 non-profit, public charity based in Tarrant county within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. All training sessions are held in the Keller, Southlake and Grapevine areas of the metroplex. Because we are an all-volunteer non-profit, our fees are very low.
As the IDEA Service Dogs program has matured, we have found that the clients we best serve are those with needs including mobility, retrieval, and medical response for adults. This includes tasks such as bracing while walking and transferring, retrieval of articles and people, seizure response and allergy detection. If you need a dog trained for tasks outside of this scope or for a child, please contact us for a referral to a private trainer or other resource.
