We’ve worked & volunteered in our military community for over a dozen years. Our dogs are now a part of how we can give back in a new & different way!
Turning Leaf Labs will give one quality puppy per litter who fits the temperament & intelligence criteria to work as a therapy and/or service dog.
All service members and their families will go through an in-depth screening before placement of a puppy.
No puppies will be placed in homes that already have dogs in them. Turning Leaf Lab puppies will only be placed in dog-free homes.
The puppy will be a “started puppy.” This means we will have hands on basic trained and certified the puppy in the commands and obedience areas that are age appropriate.
*Which training certificates the pup will go home with will depend on age of puppy and how much training we are able to give prior to the puppy going to its new home with the service member and their family.
*Please note all of our working dogs will be provided limited AKC registration and spay/neuter is required. Additionally note that therapy dog and service dog are different certifications.
**Our dogs are silver labs and silver factor chocolate labs. We won’t know how many of what color our bundles of lab puppy joy will be until they’re born! We suggest reserving a place on multiple color lists just in case.
Additional and expanded information about our program requirements and placement process will be updated soon. You can enter your information below if you would like to be contacted when we have opened our application period.
