The Joys of Living Assistance Dogs

Career Change Application (New Applicant)

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 transition 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 cost for a Career Change Dog is $2500 (subject to change each year by Dec. 31). Today's transaction wll reflect the $50 application fee only. The application fee will be accepted at the end of this form.
