Our World-Class Service Dogs complete their 18-24 month training off campus through our Prisoner PUP Program and with our volunteer Weekend Puppy Raisers; therefore we are not able to guarantee attendance of dogs for presentations, training, or tours.
Furthermore, we bring our Service Dogs in Training out in public for specific training exercises. This means they are working, and are not available for petting and playing.
You may want to consider a visit from a pet therapy organization, which you can find by searching online.
