SSD volunteers and dogs are available to visit your community group, business, youth group, civic club, school, etc. to talk about how service dogs are chosen, trained, and matched with their partners, and to demonstrate what service dogs can do.
Our volunteers can tailor the demonstration to fit the needs of your group. Please let us know how long you would like us to speak (15, 30, 45, 60 minutes, etc.), and we will tailor the demonstration accordingly.
We are normally able to accommodate locations within a reasonable distance for our staff, volunteers or service dog partners, who are located throughout Pennsylvania. Please allow 15 business days to schedule a demonstration. SSD tries to accommodate as many requests as possible but is occasionally not able to accommodate a request. Please note that our demonstrations are best suited for ages 5 and up. We are unable to accommodate groups of children younger than 5.
Fees may be required for some demonstrations. Additionally, as a nonprofit, SSD is grateful for donations made in honor of a demonstration.
A photographer may accompany the SSD volunteer and dog to take photos during the demonstration for SSD's social media.
