Amazing Tails is a Delaware based nonprofit 501c(3) organization that helps people in need every day.
There is perhaps nothing more important and empowering for a person than independence. Our country was founded on it. For people with disabilities, the guiding principles of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are not simple and cannot be taken for granted.
Since 1999, Amazing Tails has trained dogs to assist people maintain a safe and independent existence by helping with every day tasks including, (but not limited to), aiding a person in maintaining or regaining their balance, assisting someone in a wheelchair, alerting to possible health risks like seizures, hearing a ringing phone or a fire alarm, or simply providing companionship.
Nestled in the bucolic hills of Oxford in southeastern Pennsylvania, Amazing Tails trains each service dog to meet the specific needs of each and every client.
Our location allows us to expose the dogs we train to a wide range of training experiences, including visits to Amish farms and exposure to urban environments in big cities such as Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Amazing Tails has extensive experience training dogs for a wide range of skills. We focus on the training of four specific types of service dogs:
- Support Dogs
- Wheelchair Dogs
- Alerting Dogs
- Hearing Dogs
Support Dogs are trained to work with people who need assistance with balance, stability, walking and momentum.
Wheelchair Dogs are trained to accompany and assist people using wheelchairs or scooters.
Alerting Dogs which include seizure alert and diabetic alert dogs, provide early warning prior to an episode, and are trained to respond based on the individual’s needs.
Hearing Dogs are trained to work with the hearing impaired by alerting their owners to sounds such as alarm clocks, ringing phones, fire alarms, and any other sounds that the individual requires.
Additionally, the presence of a dog can be calming and provide emotional support to those clients who need it. Although Amazing Tails does not train dogs for this purpose, many of our clients have benefited from this emotional security.
