Paws Upon the Cowlitz breeds and raises labradoodles to be placed as service animals/companions in homes of individuals with disabilities.
Our program operates in two ways:
1. A breeder may retire into service work. All breeders start training as service animals. Their strengths are identified and skill training begins. Most breeders retire at 4-6 years of age and then move on to their service animal forever homes.
2. Young puppies are retained for service work due to a customer order -or- an exceptional pup has been identified.
*Not all of our puppies/dogs are suitable for service work. Please see our puppy page for available pet puppies
