Currently our focus is on training Post Traumatic Stress (PTS or PTSD) Service dogs for Military and First Responders and mobility assistance dogs. We have therapy dogs that are available to make visits to schools, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, courtrooms or any other places that they would play a beneficial role in people's health and well-being. We specialize in training and placing German Shepherds. We are offering an owner-trainer program, if you have your own dog or would like to purchase a dog (any breed), we can help with getting them trained to serve you. Not all dogs will have the temperament to meet the public access standards but those dogs can serve you in your home. You can find applications on each perspective page. Thank you for your interest in Brush Creek Service and Therapy Dog Center, Inc.
Our Post Traumatic Stress (PTS/PTSD) Service Dogs support individuals with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues, and we are careful to ensure that each of our students is teamed with a dog that best suits that person’s capability, lifestyle, mobility, personality, and psychological needs. We match each applicant with the dog that will be their partner, and the power of this partnership transforms both their lives. It is this bond within a working service dog team that makes all of the magic happen.
A service dog acts as the arms and legs for someone who is physically disabled. These specially trained dogs can help pull a person’s wheel chair, assist in transferring in and out of a wheel chair and act as a brace for someone with poor balance.
Emotional Support Animal
For some people with mental or emotional conditions, the presence of a dog is beneficial to their well-being. The dog’s ability to help the person deal with the challenges of their emotional difficulties adds quality to life. These dogs are called Emotional Support Animals (ESA).
