We are very excited and proud to announce that we are now offering Service Dog* training! With this new program, you will receive a Free, No Obligation Consultation with our Certified Service Dog trainer, as well as a temperament and training assessment for your dog to determine if he or she is suited to provide your assistance needs. We will also design a training protocol for you and your dog to help you both achieve your goals.

Please be aware that you will be an active participant (depending on your disability) during the training process. This will include making yourself available for instruction and lessons. Travel costs associated with your participation are not included in your training fee.

Upon successful completion of your program, you will receive a Certification ID card to carry with you. An annual retest with additional fee will be required.
