Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets.
The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. We can group the dogs we train into 4 categories of service — Assistant, Facility, Mental Health, and Medical Health.
Thin Line Service Dogs utilize Golden Retrievers specifically bred for health and temperament and follow the Golden Retriever Club of America Code of Ethics (GRCA COE) with regard to health clearances. Puppies are tested to meet the early criteria as a service dog prospect.
During the puppy phase, various techniques are used to ensure sight, sound, touch, and human touch is incorporated into the whelping box. These factors help ensure the puppy has the best start to becoming a working service dog.
