If ICAN thinks they have a dog for me, what happens next?

Once ICAN has reviewed and approved your application, ICAN begins it’s work of identifying a dog to fit your needs. If we feel we may have a match for you a home visit will be arranged or we will invite you to our office for a practice session. During the practice session you will get an idea of what working with a service dog will be like. Once your match is identified, you will be asked to attend two weeks of training (Team Training), where you and your new partner will learn to work together. Your teachers during team training include ICAN staff and carefully selected inmate handlers at Indiana Women’s Prison in Indianapolis. Complete payment of the $2,500 placement fee or whatever the amount the fee is, at the time you receive your dog, is required by the first day of Team Training.
