|Canine Assistants in Georgie offers dogs for free, but their wait list can be as long as 5 years -- they go on a needs basis (who needs a dog the most). They're very reputable. They're very friendly though and if you call them I'm sure you can ask what other programs are reputable for you to join a wait-list on.
Susquehanna service dogs, I've heard good things about their dogs but I don't know if they do seizure dogs.
Paws With a Cause in Michigan has some nice dogs coming out, my personal trainer works for them and she is great.
There's a group on facebook called "service dog organization and trainer reviews" where they give reviews for orgs people have used before.
There's going to be a wait list for every program you choose. I suggest you do some research, post them on here, and we will take a look and give our advice on whether we think they look good or not or if we have any experience with them. Definitely reach out to Canine Assistants though, they're great.
ETA: Susquehanna service dogs *does* train seizure response, and I think their wait list isn't too long, shouldn't be more than 1-2 years. Which is an average wait time.
And sorry, ADHD caused me to loosely skim, by personal you mean you want them to train a dog you already have? A lot of reputable organizations won't do that as they have strict policies on how a dog should behave for PA, which is good because too many dogs that aren't equipped to be SDs are being used as them. You may be able to find a trainer that has experience with service dogs that will help you owner train though. Again, if you think you have found one, post her/him on here.
