Domino Service Dogs(DSD) assists people with disabilities who are training their own service dog by providing a 2 year owner-trained service dog program.  We are located in Lakewood, Colorado. At DSD, we  believe that training the handler is equally as important as training the service dog. Therefore, we have developed a program that trains both the service dog, and the handler at the same time.
