Q?

Where Do Your Service Dogs Come From?

A.

The service dogs I train have come from all over. Some have come from shelters, but most come from breeders because we need to produce a working dog and the right genetics can be difficult to find. The dog must be suitable for the tasking. If you are interested in exploring more details, you can start here.

Q?

Can You Test If My Current Dog Can Be A Service Dog?

A.

Yes. This is another more unique service we offer. We can test any dog for service dog aptitude. If your dog is right for the job, we can train him/her for you. More here: Service Dog Testing.

Q?

Am I Allowed to Have a Pet with Your Service Dogs?

A.

Yes, but it can make the transfer of the service dog into your home a bit slower.

Q?

Do You Provide the Dog?

A.

I help pick the dog. That could be a puppy from a breeder, a rescue or a dog already in your home. I test the dog's aptitude for the work and we proceed from there. If you are interested in exploring more details, you can start here.

Q?

Do You Train Out-of-State Dogs?

A.

Yes, quite often actually. Many dogs come in from out-of-state. We work with service dog owners in all parts of the country. We haven't had an international service dog yet, but we could do that too. Many of our programs can be delivered worldwide. Non-local dogs are usually in our Board and Train Puppy Service Dog program. If you are interested in exploring more details, you can start here.

Q?

How Much Do Service Dog Programs Cost?

A.

Professionally, custom-trained service dogs take 1-3 years to train and costs vary anywhere from $20,000 to $60,000. We offer several financing options and payment plans. We are also in the process of teaming up with several support organizations who can help with financing your service dog. Read More.

Q?

How Long Does a Service Dog Program Typically Take?

A.

There really is no typical service dog program duration. It all depends on the tasking you are looking for. Program duration can be anywhere between 1-3 years. The more tasks you need, the longer it takes. If you are interested in exploring more details, you can start here.
