Our Training Program
Our approach is unique - we adopt dogs from shelters, and we focus on the POSITIVE. This means rewarding our dogs for desired behaviors so they will give us those behaviors again. If they get it wrong, we figure out a better way to teach it. We never punish or use force.
Why do we train this way? It gives the dogs their best lives. They can learn without being afraid to make mistakes. This creates a creative Service Dog. A dog that will always want to give its best, which one day could save your life.
The training program takes approximately 12-18 months to complete and is divided into four stages.
