Which dog type is best for you?


Service dogs are animals that assists you with everyday life activities.  These activities include picking up items, turning on and off the lights and letting you know when someone is at your home.   Service dogs assist those with disabilities and make their lives easier.

Medical alert dogs are life changing. This type of animal provides help when constant medical care is important. Our trainers will train your dog to help you with your disorder. Our dogs detect seizures, high or low blood sugar, and changes in cortisol levels among others.  You will also receive a medical alert dog training pack!

Medical service dogs are also used to help both children and adults with many conditions. These include autism, down syndrome, panic disorders, post traumatic stress disorder and so much more! Our goal at Lost Creek is to make things easier for you and increase your quality of life.


Don't let the term "therapy dog" confuse you. These types of dogs are trained to provide comfort, love and peace of mind to others in a public environment. These environments include schools, retirement homes, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and disaster areas.

School Teacher
...I am excited how much she [Sammie] learned while there for training! She & I both survived our 1st day on the job together (as a Therapy Team)! My long term care residents loved her & look forward to having her join me at work daily. Austin & Staff thank you for all the time you spent with her & for making her comfortable those five week she was there with you. I definitely know where she will be staying anytime I am needing to board her. Lost Creek definitely is her home away from home!
