Available Membership Levels

Partner Membership

Partner Membership is open to disabled residents of the USA working with an adult guide, hearing, service dog or psychiatric service dog obtained from a provider or one trained by the owner for a minimum of six months. Puppy training before the age of six months is expected, but is not considered task training to be completely finished. For the safety of the dog, dogs that provide mobility support must be at least 18 months old. Prior to enrollment, training must be completed in accordance with the IAADP Minimum Training Standards for obedience, manners and disability related tasks.

International Partner Membership

International Partner Membership is open to disabled persons residing outside of the USA working with an adult guide, hearing, service dog or psychiatric service dog obtained from a provider or one trained by the owner for a minimum of six months. Puppy training before the age of six months is expected, but is not considered task training to be completely finished. For the safety of the dog, dogs that provide mobility support must be at least 18 months old. Prior to enrollment, training must be completed in accordance with the IAADP Minimum Training Standards for obedience, manners and disability related tasks.

IMPORTANT: Dogs utilized for emotional support, companionship or therapy may provide a feeling of comfort, safety, and other therapeutic health and psychological benefits, but these functions in and of themselves DO NOT meet the ADA Training Requirements for a service animal whose disabled handler will legally have public access rights. Therefore, their owners are NOT eligible for Partner Membership in IAADP.

Provider Membership

Provider Membership is open to assistance dog training programs and professional dog trainers who provide task trained assistance dogs to disabled persons that meet or exceed IAADP Minimum Training Standards. Also open to programs or trainers assisting disabled individuals to train their own dogs to meet or exceed IAADP Minimum Training Standards.

NOTE: Provider Memberships are a multi-tiered process. You will be contacted by our Membership Coordinator once your application has been received and she will take you through the application process. Provider Memberships are YOUR endorsement of IAADP support of excellence in training standards. Becoming a Provider Member does NOT provide any agency, dog trainer, or training program with an endorsement or referral from IAADP.

Friend Membership

Friend Membership is open to disabled individuals with a puppy or dog “in training” for a career as an assistance dog who has not yet completed the required amount of schooling to become eligible for a Partner Membership. Health care professionals, volunteer puppy raisers and anyone else interested in the assistance dog movement are also encouraged to be-come an IAADP Friend.
