We HIGHLY recommend that owners do NOT try to find and train their own Service Dogs. There is a reason why Service Dogs are very expensive and it is because it takes a lot of skill, patience and follow-through to train a dog to a level to be a true Service Dog.


If you are determined to train your own Service Dog we can still help you with the Obedience side of it, but we want to be very upfront that there are NO guarantees that even after you commit to this one year membership, you will have a trained Service Dog. After the obedience portion (or maybe during the tail end of it, we refer out to Janice Mann with K9Contentment for the Public Access Testing and to point you in the right direction for Task training.


This package is therefore more for clients who are planning to train their puppies to be an Emotional Support (ESA) or Therapy Dog. And even here there is no guarantee that your dog will be well suited for this job. Again, there is a reason why dogs that are bred for service are that expensive. That is not to say that a rescue or your own dog can never become this, but we want to be upfront about it. In addition  We offer unlimited email and phone support for all of the questions you may have along the way. The membership lasts a year, so be ready to train. When you join you receive free Puppy-K classes!  You pay $250 down when you join and $50/month for 11 months. To enroll service dogs and Emotional Support dogs you will need a doctors recommendation.
