Unique Service Animal Training Services

These are more unique service animal training services you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. We can offer these advanced service animal training options due to our experience and advanced training skill set.

  • Rescue Service Dog: A unique program offering, where we train your rescue dog in our board and train program. This starts with Service Dog Testing to determine if your rescue dog is suitable for service work. The training proceeds only if your dog has the required psychological stability.
  • Owner-Trained Service Dog: We guide you through the training process every step of the way through in-person (local only) and/or virtual (worldwide) sessions.
  • Service Dog Problem Solving: If your existing service dog has developed problems and you no longer have access to your previous trainer (or they are unwilling) this program is for you. Together, we will design a training program to get your service dog back on track.
  • Service Dog Upgrade: If you have a program service dog or any other service dog and need additional tasks to accommodate a change in your condition, we can help. You often don’t need a second dog to get new tasks added.
