*Please note that we only place dogs with clients who live in the Massachusetts area.*
Some additional information to consider before you apply:
We do not place dogs on a first come, first served basis. If you are approved, we cannot guarantee how long your wait for a service dog will be. We do our best to provide dogs in a timely manner, but dog/client matches are determined by the strengths of our dogs in training and the needs of our clients.
We require a fully fenced yard for our balance dogs.
Poodles are low shed but need to be groomed weekly by the client and by a professional every 6 to 8 weeks, at a cost of approximately $100.00.
- A high quality, approved dog food must be fed to all service dogs.
BASK does not charge the client for the dog, but the average cost to maintain one of our dogs is approximately $200.00 a month. The client will also be responsible to maintain medical insurance for their dog.
