Assistance Dog Training

There is an increasing demand from people wanting to learn how to train their own dogs to assistant them. We will coach you on how to train your dog to do advanced commands and specialized tasks.

Service dog training benefits children and adults who have a physical or psychiatric disability. Your dog can give you the gift of independence. There are many different types of assistance dogs, for example; mobility assistance dogs, hearing dogs, psychiatric service dogs and autism service dogs.

The training commands range from:

  • Retrieving the phone for people who have certain medical conditions,

  • Alerting to sounds to help people that are deaf or hard of hearing,

  • Retrieving certain items for someone in a wheelchair,

  • Teaching sit or down-stay for tactile stimulation for calming someone down if they are having a panic attack,

  • Remind someone to take his or her medication,

  • And much more.

Note: Under the federal law (Americans with Disabilities Act - ADA), assistance dogs are allowed in public places where pets are prohibited, as long as the assistance dog has been trained for public access.
