Service Dogs, Inc. trains dogs to assist Texans living with hearing or mobility challenges. We adopt every dog in our program from an animal shelter or rescue group. We invest $20,000 and one year to train each Hearing or Service Dog team (dog and person). Thanks to your donations, we provide the dogs and training free of charge.

Hearing Dogs alert their deaf partners by touch and lead them to a variety of important everyday sounds, including a knock at the door, a smoke alarm, an alarm clock and a baby’s cry. They respond to oral and sign language commands.

Service Dogs assist physically challenged individuals by opening doors and refrigerators, fetching out of reach wheelchairs, retrieving dropped items, turning lights on and off, getting help and moving paralyzed limbs. They also perform customized tasks such as assistance with clothing and specialized equipment.

Hearing and Service Dogs also provide emotional and social benefits through companionship and encouragement of greater interaction from others.(512) 891-9090
