Below is a short video about Fidos For Freedom. This is the organization that Chloe comes from in Laurel, MD. Assistance dogs can be owner trained, trained by a knowledgeable trainer, or may be a program dog (trained by an organization). The latter often provide “certification”, however the ADA does not require that dogs be certified. I am blessed to live close to Fidos For Freedom and was able to train and obtain a “Fido’s dog”.
