Our Training Program

It takes two years and approximately $16,000-20,000 to successfully train and certify a Service Dog.

Our quality breeder dogs provide healthy and sound pups which start their training at just three days old. Over a two year period, a young dog in training needs to pass high standards of health, behavior, obedience and skill training in order to become a certified service dog.  Ongoing data and testing is documented in each dog’s file as required by Assistance Dogs International (ADI).

Our service dogs in training are raised by our volunteer Puppy Raisers in loving homes. Each dog in training learns specific tasks along with basic obedience and social skills.

When Service dogs in training are ready, confident and have graduated, they are teamed and given to waiting applicants who have passed a screening committee application process that meets ADI standards.

Clients are given a Service dog for a six-month trial period to continue training and bond. This training with their new partner continues as long as they bond and work as a team. Dogs are placed regardless of monies raised or not.
