About Us

DogsInVests has been training and placing service dogs with children and young adults with autism since our inception in 2017. We are currently training five service dogs that will be placed with individuals over the next 24 months. We are adding another new puppy to our training program in early 2024. DogsInVests placed our first service dog with his recipient in July 2020, a second dog was placed in August 2021 and third dog was placed in August 2022. We placed a fourth dog in May 2023.

DogsInVests specializes in the training and placement of service dogs for children and young adults with autism in Southeastern Wisconsin. The average cost to train, feed, and maintain the health of our service dogs from puppy to placement is approximately $25,000.00 per dog.

DogsInVests also facilitates awareness-building presentations that educate children and families about autism, the benefits of service dogs for individuals with autism, and how to behave around a working service dog. DogsInVests has hosted several of these presentations in local schools, churches and community organizations reaching hundreds of individuals since our founding.
