Request A Dog - Service Dogs

Students at Bergin University train and place service dogs as a part of the Assistance Dog Education degree program. Our main focus is providing these students with a thorough, in-depth and experiential education in the training and placement of service dogs. In order to maximize the involvement of our students, the service dog application process is all done via email. This allows us to review client communications with all of the students and to involve the entire group in the client communication process. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to help our students learn, and we hope that our students will, in turn, be able to help you by training and placing one of our wonderful service dogs with you.
