KSDS Inc. Assistance Dogs



KSDS Assistance dogs Inc. is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI). We provide guide dogs for the visually impaired, service dogs to assist individuals with physical disabilities and facility dogs that assist professionals in the field of education, counseling, health care, retirement or the legal system. Please follow the links below to find out more about our assistance dogs or to request an application.


If you are seeking an assistance dog in other areas, such as Autism, Alzheimer's, cognitive challenges, diabetes, hearing loss, emotional assistance, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or seizure alert, KSDS encourages you to look into dogs trained at another ADI accredited school. Like KSDS, other ADI accredited schools must meet a strict list of high standards and are frequently reassessed. To find quality assistance dogs that are trained for these specific needs, please visit www.assistancedogsinternational.org
