ALL of Canine Support Teams’ dogs are ADA Compliant and Public Access Test Certified. They undergo two years of training before being placed with a disabled client. You can be confident that the service dog you receive from CST is an elite “4-legged professional”, ready and eager to fulfill his/her calling.
