Service and Therapy Training – Our service dog course offers common service tasks such as retrieving dropped items from the floor, opening doors and helping maintain your balance while walking or standing along with excellent obedience and a calm, attentive demeanor in public, regardless of distractions.

Personal Protection – Does your dog have the drive and determination to be a personal protection dog? Our personal protection program teaches your dog to attack an intruder on command, potentially saving the life of yourself of a family member. Protection training is highly labor intensive and requires absolute compliance with all instructions. Most personal protection dogs are selected while they are still young and are raised differently than gentle family dogs. Evaluating your dog for protection work takes place over the span of three sessions. Cost and duration are based on your dog’s aptitude and the extent of training you desire. The cost of an evaluation is $150 and is non-refundable.
