Service Dogs

Service Dog Wellness Program

Bigger Road offers a comprehensive service dog wellness program that makes it easier for you to ensure your qualifying service dog receives necessary preventive care.

Together with our service and product partners, we are able to provide many preventive care services and products for service dogs at no charge. Additional benefits are available with your membership in Guiding Eyes for the Blind or the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners (IAADP).

Eligibility: Pets who qualify for the service dog wellness program are dogs who have undergone specialized training to perform a specific task for one person. This includes police dogs, seeing-eye dogs, seizure alert dogs, etc., but not therapy dogs or Emotional Support Animals (ESAs). Call or contact us online if you have questions about eligibility.
