Our Goal

Understanding Complexity


When Smith Haven was just an idea, a lot of things were slowly starting to make sense. In my journey to heal from my own battle scars, life was graceful enough to put Stanley the Service dog in my lap. Ever since then, our journey has been one that has taken us from the lowest of lows, to the highest of highs. I started Smith Haven Service Dogs to spread the love that Smith, our company Mascot, and my service dog, brought into my life. Through education, awareness, and optimal training, Smith Haven strives to be the very best in a field that desperately needs attention - so please, feel free to contact me personally with any questions you may have. I know the road can seem daunting - but there is light at the end of your journey.
