Several organizations produce service dogs based on the Alberta Training Standard. They raise, train and match dogs with clients. Service dog teams are supported throughout the working life of the dog.
Get a service dog
If you are speaking with an organization or trainer about having a dog trained for you, first verify they are approved in Alberta. You can get a pre-qualified dog from:
- approved service dog organizations
- organizations accredited by or holding candidacy status with Assistance Dogs International
Contact the Service Dog Assessment Team if you need help determining the status of an organization.
Service dog ID card
Qualified service dog teams are eligible to receive a service dog identification card. Service dog teams should carry their ID with them at all times when in public. Get a service dog identification card.
