Service Dog

Clients who are partnered with a service dog have public access rights through the Americans with Disabilities Act to take the dog with them wherever the public is allowed. We train each dog to perform tasks that meet the individual needs of clients both at home and in public. Here are just some of the tasks ADAI service dogs are trained to provide:

  • Open doors, cupboards, refrigerators, dryers, etc.
  • Retrieve cordless phones
  • Activate access buttons and switches
  • Tug off clothing
  • Carry items
  • Pick up dropped items
  • Provide balance while walking

If you are interested in applying for a service dog, you may be eligible if you:

  • Live within 150 miles of ADAI
  • Are 12 years old or older
  • Have a mobility disability (spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, etc.)
