About Service Dogs

When a Service Dog is placed with a person, it is for a probationary period of six months. At the end of that time they check to see that you’ve kept up with his health care, eating regimen, and exercise. The animal/handler team is then tested in various ways and if they pass, the dog becomes fully certified. Buddy was placed with me March 21st, 2003 and was fully certified September 22nd, 2003.


“I always tell our volunteers that I wish everyone could be there when I place a service dog with its new owner, they are so excited about their new partner and for the help these dogs give them. The dogs change their lives dramatically,” said Peper-Rucks.
