today i found that i dont qulify to get an assitant dog but i also found out i might be able to adopt a dog that failed that program does anyone have any information on this i want either a large or medium dog i think this is the only i can get one my mom eyes really opened up when she saw those dogs work today i think i got some lead way here at least they wouild partly trained i dont mind that i think this is the only way i can get a dog
dogs can fail for a variety of reasons so it would be hard to say if you adopted one who failed out of the program , whether it would be a good match for you. i would guess that just because the dog failed one aspect of the training, doesnt mean he cannot be trained to assist in a different way. he/she may not have had the specific apptitude for what that program was looking for, but the dog may excel in something you need the dog for. this is really something you need to talk in depth about with people who are involved in the training and raising of these dogs.
you may want to consider adopting a dog, and then having someone come to your home and help you train the dog for your specific needs. have you decided on a particular type or breed of dog that you want ?
