Sharing of D4D’s Program Information
We have had the support of many different persons and organizations to guide us through this development. D4D is not expert in all of these areas, but it has obtained information from expert sources and would like to share it throughout its community. Look into the About Us section to learn more about how our program was developed.
Our new website provides the means to share this information with interested persons to increase their understanding of these topics. While D4D is limited in its ability to assist persons needing this information , its website allows it to share this information with the public beyone our service area.
The Resource section of our website provides information regarding the rights of persons with disabilities to obtain Workplace Accommodations and School Accommodations. Additionally, it provides information regarding Public Access Laws and Housing Laws that could be helpful to the public and businesses.
The information on this website is provided for informational purposes and should not be taken as legal advice. Any questions regarding your rights under law should be directed to your own attorney.
Knowledge is Critically Important for Success
We sincerely hope that the section on Medical Assistance Dog Standards may assist persons who are seeking the support of a medical alert assistance dog to assure that they understand the risks and benefits of this service.
Working with a medical alert assistance dog is not for everyone.
Working with a medical alert assistance dog is not for everyone. It is not as easy as simply buying a puppy that has been introduced to the scent of the medical condition that is targeted for support or by attending a week long training seminar. A successful placement of a medical alert service dog requires significant effort to train the dog and the client to work appropriately together and to sustain reliable alerts over the working life of the dog. A client/handler must develop significant dog training skills and knowledge for long term success.
