Genesis Service Dogs is an Idaho-based, non-profit organization that breeds, raises and trains dogs to assist children and adults with special needs. We understand the many benefits of service dogs, as well as the power of the human-animal bond in providing comfort, independence, confidence and companionship. To that end, our focus at Genesis Service Dogs is to breed/acquire, raise, and train puppies to be placed with persons special needs along with raising puppies that will go on to other non-profit organizations in the United States that train and support guide dogs, balance dogs, seizure alert dogs, insulin level detection dogs, wheel-chair assistance dogs, hearing dogs and other service dogs that contribute to the freedom, independence and safety of people with disabilities.
Genesis Service Dogs are trained by volunteers. We have a small group of puppy raisers who are currently raising puppies from our breeding lines as well as lines having the quailities we are seeking. These puppies are under evaluation for breeding and service work as well as “companion dog” placement for children with various disabilities.
We look for dogs in our companion dog program that have the ability and temperament to be exceptional, sensitive companion dogs — a perfect fit for the family of a special needs child. If you think you or your child may benefit from one of our special dogs, please let us know.
Many of the larger service dog and guide dog schools have their own breeding colonies. Some of the smaller organizations do not have their own breeding programs and have need of puppies that are well bred with strong health screenings and histories and the right temperament for service.
Puppy raisers are vital to every service dog organization. If you are interested in raising a puppy or being a breeder keeper for our program, please contact us.
Occasionally, we may have puppies from a litter that for one reason or another are not going to be put into our puppy raising program or donated to other schools. Typically, these make wonderful pet dogs and are available for sale. This could be because we had a larger than expected litter or our timing isn’t right for the agencies we serve. If you are interested in buying one of our puppies as a personal pet (these sales help support our organization), be sure to contact us and let us know.
Genesis Service Dogs is a 501(c) tax exempt non-profit corporation. We provide our pups free of charge to quailified special needs persons and donate to other non-profit service dog schools. We need funding for such things as veterinary expenses, equipment, puppy jackets and transporting dogs between our volunteers, staff and client agencies.
