SERVICE DOG TRAINING
We offer training programs for those who need the help of an assistance canine to mitigate a medical disability. We are able to assist you in training specific tasks, including hearing assistance, light mobility assistance (non weight bearing), medical response, and PTSD related tasks. Seraphim Service Dogs is our in-house training program for partially and fully trained assistance dogs.
We do ask for a letter of recommendation from a local licensed medical professional directly indicating the need for a task trained Service Dog. This letter should also state the reasoning for this need, and how the dog should be able to mitigate your disabilities.
Your dog must be able to pass our behavioral evaluation and service dog testing criteria. We want to ensure that your dog will be able to do the job that you will need for the future. If you currently don't have a dog, we are happy to assist in the process of finding a dog for you that will fit your needs. The dog could be found potentially in a local shelter, through a rescue or from an ethical preservation breeder.
We recommend having short and long term goals for you and your dog as a team. An example of a good short term goal for a new team would be to be able to pass all three levels of the AKC CGC. An example of a good long term goal would be to pass our Public Access Test.
One-on-one private lessons run $150 per hour in your home or out in public, if needed.
We also offer packages for your convenience. Packages must be paid in full prior to starting, and are non-refundable once lessons have started. Packages must be used within a 12 month period from date of purchase.
