Service Dog Training
Service Dog Training Program
A service dog is a dog that has been trained a minimum of two skills to assist a person with a disability with daily activities. This dog has public access to any public places and is protected by the ADA (Click here to see Frequently Asked Questions about Service Animals and the ADA).
An Evaluation with a trainer is the first step to this Board and Train Program. Program prices vary depending on the training required and will be estimated at the dog’s Evaluation.
During the evaluation the trainer will go over your needs and evaluate the dog to ensure it is compatible for the training requested. CFK9 requires all clients requesting service dog training furnish a letter or prescription from their doctor or therapist stating the need for a service dog. In order to complete the service dog training additional board and train programs may be required
