Service Dog Project, Inc.
Ipswich, MA

The Service Dog Project provides large breed “balance” dogs for people with mobility issues, enabling them to achieve more independence. They train primarily Great Danes for use by people with Parkinson’s, MS and stroke-related impairments. The people who are partnered with these “gentle giants” get wonderful balance and mobility benefits and are freed from the need for a cane. The program is based on a farm in MA, and they visit the whole community during training, with therapeutic visits to nursing homes, schools and rehab centers.
