Dog House

Our aim is to raise service puppies and or dogs to assist those with social/emotional and physical disabilities or serious medical conditions. This service brings awareness to the challenges faced by those who are affected by these disabilities. Dog House is valuable to Dickinson because it fosters a community that provides raising, training, and socializing for service puppies on campus through a student-run organization with the option for students to live with the service dogs in a designated on-campus Special Interest House.
