What is a Career Change Dog?
Our professional trainers carefully select our dogs by evaluating them for temperament, health and eagerness to please. They are rescued from shelters where they are at risk for euthanasia. They enter a rigorous training program to become Hearing Dogs for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Not all of our outstanding dogs can meet the demands of becoming a Certified Assistance Dog, thus the need for a "Career Change". They are, however, still winners, and make wonderful pets. Many are already housebroken and some know basic obedience commands. In short, these "near misses" make wonderful companions. We can help match you with a lifelong canine companion.

Flash is a 13 year young Border Collie/Flat Coat Retreiver-ish mix. He worked as a loyal Service Dog for a person with a profound hearing loss for over 11 1/2 years. He is now ready to enjoy his retirement with a new family. He is very healthy and still quite active. He's housebroken, walks nicely on leash, and is very well socialized.
