GLAD WAGS INC.
Glad Wags Inc. is a non-profit arm of Marj the Dog Trainer Dog Obedience School and Ms. Abilities America. Currently we have a large working Therapy Dog group that routinely visits various facilities in Tulsa and surrounding area.
Glad Wags also has a large performance dog team..that regularly appears on TV, pet events, and consumer events through out Green Country.
I am most proud of the fact that we now have 12 service dogs either in training or actually in service at this time. The need for service dogs of all levels is great. The waiting time can be up to 4 years for some high level service dogs. Because of my training history with Freedom Service Dogs and Hearing Dogs International (both based in Colorado) I have decided that myself and several of my training staff can make a difference by training and providing service dogs without the long waiting time.
Our current waiting time for a High Level dog is just under 2 years…these are dogs that assist folks in wheelchairs or have very limited mobility.
Our dogs that assist with Medical Alert and PTSD have a turn around time of under one year and sometimes in six months.
We get our dogs to train as service dogs from local animal shelters and rescue groups…we are very proud of the fact that dogs that have been thrown away by someone now become someone else’s way to independence!!
We will also test/evaluate a current family dog to see if they can be trained to assist a family member with a disability. We have several dogs in training that were the families pet and already in the home.
As we move forward with this endeavor we are looking for financial support so that we can provide the dogs at no cost to our clients; so that they can start living a more independent lifestyle.
If you would be willing to help please feel free to contact me…
