Service Dog Training

We understand the importance of a Service Dog to a person with a disability.  For that reason, we offer training for Service Dogs for PTSD.  This can be for a military veteran or a person who has had traumatic incident where a Service Dog is needed.  The dogs we train as Service Dogs fall under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines and are not comfort support dogs.  These dogs are trained as working dogs with a job.  Just like all Service Dogs it takes a very special dog to be able to do this work.  Not just any dog can do this type of work and with that we hand select our dogs.  

Our PTSD Service Dog Training includes the dog, the training of the dog, the training of the handler and continuous maintenance training.  

Packages start at....................................................................................................... $15,000 depending on type of dog and training needed
