Loyal Companions raise and train service dogs for assisting autistic individuals, mobility support, mobility assistance, Tourette's support, hearing assistance, PTSD, psychiatric support, anxiety, seizure alert, seizure detection, and more. They have a preliminary application that helps us match the right dog to the individual. Once the application is reviewed and approved they work to match and deliver a finished service dog in 10 to 18 months when possible.
