What Drives Us
We want to offer mentally impaired people who rely on your dog’s help to cope with daily life a way to train your dog so that he can be certified as a PSD (Psychiatric Service Dog).
In this way, we want to make our contribution to enabling this special group of people to travel with their dog without discrimination. Every Mesnsch should experience equal opportunities to shape their lives. In doing so, we apply the highest quality standards to the concept and certification. Not only the dog, but also the dog owner is trained.
