Pawsitivity Service Dogs


Pilot program.


If you are a disabled veteran in Minnesota, have a dog with a CGC certificate*, and wish to train your dog to be a service dog to help you with your disability, consider applying for our new pilot program for us to work with you extensively to train your own service dog.

* CGC stands for Canine Good Citizen certificate.

An applicant must:

  • Be a U.S. military veteran.
  • Have a dog with a current CGC (Canine Good Citizen) certificate.
  • Live in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, or a suburb of Minneapolis or Saint Paul.
  • Work or go to school less than 20 hours a week. Note: Many people with disabilities work or go to school full-time, but for this pilot study, we're only working with people who don't work or go to school full-time.
  • Agree to work closely with Pawsitivity and send in daily reports.

If you meet all these requirements, you can contact us at [email protected]
