Service Dog Training Programs

Our service dog training programs offer a variety of hands-on help. From intentional puppy-raising and socialization assistance, to task training and advanced public access, we can help you with all of it! We currently offer the following types of task training:

- Anxiety  and PTSD Interruption, Alert, and Response

- Mobility Assistance (we do not teach bracing)

- Medical Alert and Response

- Dysautonomia tasks

- Autism Assistance tasks (we do not teach tethering for children)

During all board and train programs, standard skills taught include:

- relaxed heel with check-ins

- settling in public

- ignoring animals, people, kids

- distraction work in a variety of environments 

- confidence building in a variety of locations

- riding in cars and on public transportation

- solid "under"command 

- how to behave in emergency situations (if this is something that you are likely to encounter with your disability/disabilities)

- being handled by other people

- preparing for air travel (if this is something you plan to do in the future)

During our coaching program, we will focus on proofing the above behaviors if your dog already knows them, or teaching them if your dog does not.
