FUNDAMENTALS

During the first 20 weeks, our experienced trainers will focus on teaching the service dog teams basic behavioral fundamentals.  We work closely with you and your dog to ensure you are a proficient TEAM.

PUBLIC ACCESS

The next phase of the program involves our trainers taking the service dog teams to various public venues.  This phase of training helps to facilitate stability and confidence while interacting with the public.

TASK-BASED

The final phase of training will focus on teaching your dog specific tasks pertinent to your needs.  These tasks could include mobility assistance, retrieval skills, and PTSD, such as depression, anxiety, hypervigilance and night terrors.

As part of the training, we will help you achieve the following certifications – AKC K9 Good Citizen, ASAS Public Access, and ASAS Service Dog Certification.

LIFETIME SUPPORT
