Our Vision

We are a small business owned and run by disabled individuals. The goal of Leonard's PetStop is to provide low cost, high-quality, dog training to individuals. We specialize in Started Service dogs for handlers that cannot afford to purchase a fully trained service dog from a large program.

Our program allows the handler to be involved throughout the entire training process, and we work with dog and handler team until both are confident and solid in tasks. We then graduate the team as a Started Service Dog Team.We work with handlers that already have dogs, as well, as those that need help obtaining dogs.

We strive to strengthen the human animal bond in all teams and we are dedicated to training dogs to help their handlers one day at a time!
