Summer Doodles of Oklahoma has donated a puppy to TheraPETics Service Dogs of Oklahoma, Inc. was formed in 1992. TheraPETics is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing specially trained Service Dogs to people with physical disabilities, helping them achieve maximum independence. Service Dogs may be trained to pull a wheelchair, turn light switches on or off, help pull doors open, retrieve dropped articles, provide stability while the owner transfers from the wheelchair to a car, open and close drawers, or other tasks specific to the owner's unique needs and situation. After passing all of the physical and behavioral tests, the training program generally takes about 7-18 months for the dog. The new owner will be required to come and train with their new partner for 120 hours of individualized instruction. All the dogs in the program are donated. Reputable breeders often donate puppies. Individuals often donate young dogs that no longer fit their household. And dogs rescued from shelters are often used.
