Caring for Dogs and Clients

Dogs for Better Lives has trained and placed Assistance Dogs to people across the nation since 1977. We train Hearing Assistance Dogs, Autism Assistance Dogs and Facility Dogs to do specific tasks that enhance the lives of people in need. Our Northeast Campus in Falmouth, MA is our newest training campus, and we train dogs for all three of our programs on-site.

The Northeast Campus also offers dog boarding and daycare to the public. Profits from the daycare and boarding business directly support our Assistance Dogs programs.

Our goal is to offer dogs a “home away from home”, to provide the very best in care, comfort, cleanliness and safety for your pet. If you have any questions, or would like to make a reservation, you can reach us at 508-564-4088 or email us at
