Service Dog Coaching

Full Service Dog Training Center

Service dogs are defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act and are dogs that are specifically trained to help people with disabilities. For example, service dogs can be trained to help people who have PTSD, mobility impairments, are deaf or hard of hearing, have diabetes or many other conditions. We can help people with disabilities train their own dog to assist them as a service dog.

Our Process

Step 1

We begin with our intake form and a 60 minute virtual appointment. This is when we will answer your questions, gather information about your dog and your needs, give you important information about service dog training as well as training recommendations to get started. Submitting the Intake Form is free, of course, but Virtual Appointments start at FEE $75 hr

If you are not able to complete this form due to a disability (I've taken all possible steps to make it A11y compliant), please feel free to schedule a Discovery Call with us.

Step 2

We conduct an 90 minute in-home evaluation of your dog. This is when we look at how your dog responds to some minor stressors in a new situation to see if it is appropriate to begin training him or her for service work.

FEE $125

Step 3

Training for service work, if your dog is suitable. This process usually takes 1 – 2 years but can take longer. Process includes a mixture of virtual and in person training appointments, group classes, day training, private training and board and train if needed to get them started. Hourly Rate and/or Package Rates apply.

Step 4

Follow-up support. Help to maintain your dog’s training throughout your service dog’s working career. Fees FEE $125 hr

No Show Policy

Your appointment is very important to us. However, we understand there are unexpected situations that may conflict with our schedule time.

Any cancellation or reschedule made less than 48 hours before our appointment time will be considered a no-show and will result in your forfeiting the meeting.

In the event of a true, unavoidable emergency, we will do our best to reschedule your service for another time that is convenient to you.

Refund Policy

When you sign up for this program, you are holding a spot on our calendar to provide the best service possible to you. We hope you'll take advantage of our time together, but if you do not, we unfortunately cannot provide a refund. We will work with you to the best of our ability to accommodate schedules to ensure you get the most out of this program.

To encourage commitment to training, refunds are not offered. In the unfortunate circumstance that your dog passes away, previously unused, paid training sessions will graciously be refunded.
