Registration is open for our January 2021 Therapy Dog Prep School

PRE-APPLICATION FOR A SERVICE DOG
(for a Non-Veteran in San Diego)


Pawsitive Teams places service dogs with persons who have a mobility-limiting disability, who live in San Diego County, and who have no plans to leave San Diego County for at least one year.

We do not train or place dogs for seizure response, hearing alert, psychiatric disabilities, autism, or developmental disabilities.

ABOUT THIS PRE-APPLICATION

This "Pre-Application for Service Dog Placement" is not a formal application. It is an inquiry so we can learn more about you as a potential applicant. We do not require a formal application unless we feel we have an appropriate dog. All inquiries are kept in our files for future matching. Potential applicants are screened to determine individual needs and the ability to benefit from a service dog and to provide a safe and healthy environment for the dog.
 
THE PLACEMENT MATCHING PROCESS

We wish we could  provide a dog to each person who contacts us, but we're careful not to make promises we can't keep—the match between dog and disabled handler is an important part of the formula for a successful team. We do not place dogs based on the date a person first contacts us. Because we are a small program and cannot guarantee a match for every applicant, we encourage you to also check with Assistance Dogs International (ADI)—many ADI member organizations place dogs with veterans.
