Adorable Service Puppies- Future Lifesavers
Life is definitely way better for many people with a Service Dog. Service Dogs can help kids with autism, the physically impaired, people with PTSD and even people with illnesses or anxiety disorders.
We have had the great pleasure of meeting many of these lifesavers and heroes. We love making tribute videos to educate people on their work.
Max and Autism Assistance Dog NSD Chester
This video of Max and his autism assistance dog NSD Chester is so heartwarming. Chester was part of the National Service Dog Puppy Program and trained for 2 years to work with Max.
Dog Guide Keats and Braydon
Tracey’s powerful words explain the incredible difference Dog Guide Keats has made in her son Braydon’s life. Braydon found Keats through Lions Foundation of Dog Guides Canada.
Special Skills Dog Guides Jasper and Titan
This moving and inspiring short film features beautiful Beverley who is blind and her dog Jasper, as well as Jim and his buddy Titan who open Doors & Fridges, Picks Up Keys & barks at trouble. These labrador retrievers are so well trained, loving and talented.
PTSD Assistance Dogs
Service dogs have been found to have the ability to draw out even the most isolated personality helping patients overcome emotional numbness and Post Traumatic Stress. The dogs can also help ease the hypervigilance common with PTSD. Knowing that a naturally alert and caring soul has your back helps ease the daily symptoms of PTSD.

One of our favorite days filming segments for Talent Hounds was hanging out at the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides Office in Oakville and meeting a group of 8 week old Labrador Retriever Puppies.
