Career Change Dogs

Career Change dogs have had a lot of training but are dismissed from our service dog program for a variety of reasons. These range from a behavior that is not suitable for a service dog, to a health issue. When we sell these dogs, we give full disclosure as to why the dog was career changed. We place these dogs with applicants, not on a first-come-first-served basis, but rather on the best fit for the dog and the applicant. All dogs are current on vaccines, arrangements will be made if they are not yet old enough to be spayed or neutered, and the applicant is given a two-week trial period where they can take the dog home to determine if the dog is a good fit for them. The price for a Career Change Dog is subject to change each December 31st. Our current sale price for a Career Change Dog is $2000, in addition to a $25 application fee. The application fee can be mailed in or taken by way of PayPal over the phone.
