We offer training for emotional support dogs, service dogs and therapy dogs. Training requests are available on a case-by-case basis only and may depend heavily upon the dog's character, age, breed(s), history and adaptability. Prices available upon request.
Emotional Support Dog (ESA) Training
An emotional support dog is designed to bring comfort and minimize the negative symptoms of a person's emotional/psychological disability. The animal must be prescribed by the person's licensed licensed mental health professional. The dog's purpose is to bring comfort and minimize the negative symptoms of the person's emotional/psychological disability. Emotional support dogs are legally permitted to fly with and live with their designated handler (regardless of pet restrictions).
Service Dog Training
Service dogs are trained to perform major life tasks to assist people with physical disabilities. For a person to legally qualify to have a service dog, he/she must have a disability that substantially limits his/her ability to perform at least one major life task without assistance. To qualify as a service dog, the dog must be individually trained to perform that major life task and meet other basic training requirements.
Therapy Dog Training
The primary purpose of a therapy animal is to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, and to people with learning difficulties. Therapy dogs must meet basic training standards.
