Specializing in the raising and training of:




 Dawgs in Motion would like to introduce our sister company Dawgs at Work.

 Dawgs at work specializes the training of working dogs to provide compassionate care and comfort to the community and beyond.

What goes into training our specially selected dogs?

By the end of a 2-year training career our dogs have logged over 6000+ hours of training! Our Certified Therapy dogs will be certified with the American Kennel Club in STAR, CGC, CGCU, and CGCA as well as receiving additional certification in Public Access work and Therapy.

Dawgs at Work sources their puppies from well-established responsible breeders and trains them to be Therapy Dogs, ESA’s, or Service Dogs! From the day they are picked up from the breeder these special pups are raised and trained extensively to prepare them to go out into the community and provide comfort to those who need it most. For the two months they live in-home with our Lead Trainer Mandie and Certified Therapy Dog (retired service dog) North, during an intense home-style board and train boot camp.

​During this critical socializing window, the lead trainer works with the pups to expose them in a safe and controlled manner to all sorts of new sights, sounds, smells, textures, and events. After the first two months our pups move in with our assistant trainers and puppy raisers where they will continue to grow and learn over the course of around a year and a half. At the end of the training program our pups will hold titles in AKC STAR Puppy, AKC Canine Good Citizen, AKC Urban Canine Good Citizen, AKC Community Canine, and Therapy Assistance.
