Dogs chosen for Service Packs are not breed specific. They can be large or small. Sleek or fuzzy. Stocky or skinny. It doesn't matter. What we look for is dogs that work well together as a team.
All of the dogs in the photo above were rescues, which doesn't mean they are mutts, or damaged goods. It just means that at some point in their lives, they had no place to call home, no one who wanted them, and no one to love.
Dogs trained for Service Packs are taken from shelters and rescue organizations. Rescued dogs are often better dogs than breeder dogs, because they recognize, it seems, that they're being saved, making them more loyal and dedicated. There is no shortage of dogs that are in need of rescue, and by utilizing this sustainable resource, we're able to minimize the cost of a Service Pack.
