This one dates back to the beginning. We have known Robyn and Meg since we began and their organization has become a wonderful friend of Wiredog. The quality of volunteers speaks volumes to the integrity of their non-profit.
Power Paws specializes in the training of Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers in 90 commands to assist adults and children with disabilities. Their primary focus is on mobility impairments, such as paraplegics and quadriplegics, but they also provide dogs to the hearing impaired and psycho/social disabilities, such as fears, phobias and Post Traumatic Distress Disorder. Among the commands their service dogs learn are: to open and close doors and drawers, turn lights on and off, push elevator buttons and retrieve dropped items. They are also now training Diabetic Alert Dogs.

Heeling Allies Assistance Dogs Seattle, WA www.mentalhealthdogs.org email@example.com
ABOUT HEELING ALLIES ASSISTANCE DOGS
Heeling Allies trains Mental Health Service Dogs, Emotional Support Dogs & Skilled Companion Dogs to enrich the lives of individuals living with psychological, neurological and developmental impairments such as Postraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Depressive and Anxiety Disorders, Asperger's Syndrome, and Tourette Syndrome. These dogs help their handlers meet their personal and treatment goals by providing nonjudgmental companionship, reassurance, daily structure, and motivation to exercise. They can be trained to perform tasks such as: reminding their handler to take medication, providing a physical buffer in crowds, and responding to panic attacks by providing deep pressure support for nervous system regulation. Benefits include: reduction in debilitating symptoms, greater access to the world, and round-the-clock support to supplement mental health treatment and social support.
Darcie Boltz began developing the Heeling Allies program in 2007 and launched it in 2008. Heeling Allies is one of the first professional organization in the U.S. to specialize in training dogs exclusively for individuals with mental health challenges. It is modeled after well-established organizations with a long history of successfully producing assistance dogs for individuals with physical disabilities. It combines thorough evaluations, long-term training programs and follow-up support for clients.
The inspiration for Heeling Allies came while Darcie was seeking holistic treatment options for a client struggling with severe agoraphobia, panic disorder, and depression. She recognized the potential for the client to benefit from the healing presence of a dog and researched the possibility of pairing him with a professionally trained service dog. She found information on training your own dog to be a service dog, but no professional training programs. The Heeling Allies team is a tight knit group of professional dogs trainers, mental health therapists, and occupational therapists.
Heeling Allies trains dogs for individuals across the country.
