Leroy has Service-Mobility Assistance Dogs! Each dog is Public Access tested and goes through an extensive socialization and obedience regiment. Our Service Dogs follow wheel-chairs, open doors, turn on and off light switches. Leroy’s dogs are kind, intelligent, and live to please!
What I look for in a dog to train as a Mobility Assist Service Dog
The first attribute of a dog who makes it into my program is simple eye contact. When I work with dogs at this level, eye contact is everything. If a dog does this naturally, I know he is asking me how he can please me. This means the dog is coachable. The second attribute is a quiet mind. Border Collies think all the time but the ABCA Border Collies are bred with intelligence as a priority. This makes them receptive to information versus being reactionary to situations. Finally, is the dog having fun during training or is the occupation a chore? Not all dogs take to Service Dog work. That’s ok!
Elvin is 2 years old. He has a quiet temperament and very intelligent, quiet mind. Elvin has a solid obedience handle and sticks to your side on and off leash. He matches his pace to the handler’s and is very polite. Elvin has been in elevators, down-town major cities, and restaurants. He continues his intense socialization training.
Elvin turns on lights, opens handicap doors, and tracks a wheelchair.
