A letter from a veteran who has a AAA service dog
All American Assistance Dogs came into my life after my wife’s friend had attended Race For A Soldier run 2014 and picked up a flyer. She shared it with my wife, and without me knowing, my wife sent email for an application.

Do You Have a Dog You Want Considered for Service Dog Training?
If you have a dog that you want considered to be trained through All American Assistance Dogs to be your service dog, we will do so upon receipt of your application and application fee, provided the dog is of a breed or breeds that historically have been associated with service dogs or have the personality associated with service dogs.
These breeds may be great service dogs if properly socialized to people and dogs. We will temperament test and train (if they pass) the following breeds, if we are able to test these dogs before they are 5 months old. Unfortunately, we are not able to temperament test or consider for training a dog that is older than 5 months old of these breeds:
- German Shepherds
We have found that these breeds have characteristics that AAADogs do not feel would make suitable service dogs, so AAADogs will not temperament test or train these dogs:
- Jack Russell or Rat Terriers
- Pit Bulls or Staffordshire Bull Terriers
- Doberman Pinchers
- Belgian Malinois
- Cane Corsos
If AAADogs is asked to provide service dog training for any other breed or mix of breeds of dogs that are older than 5 months old, we will gladly test that dog. The testing will involve the temperament test and also test for sociability with people and dogs; this testing will take place over a number of visits in a variety of settings.
