AN INVALUABLE, HIGHLY TRAINED MEMBER OF YOUR HEALTH TEAM
Having worked extensively with program trained service dogs throughout our career, we decided to create our own approach to address the flaws we experienced.
The program trained service dogs are often "cookie-cutter", mass-produced and uniform in their tasks and abilities. They may possess unsuitable temperaments, be two or more years of age by the time they are placed with their handler, know limited tasks, and have spent most of their lives in crates or huge facilities with limited to no one-on-one training. A pressing concern with program trained service dogs is the dog and handler frequently have problems bonding together due to the transient lifestyle of the dog in the first year or two of its life while it was being raised by a group of puppy raisers. Another complaint we have heard frequently from recipients of program trained service dogs is the lack of support for additional training or handler etiquette.
Our program is designed to address all of these concerns. Our service dogs are each chosen from the same exact bloodline, ensuring each generation possesses migraine alert potential, working dog mentalities, and similar size and form. We make our educated selection of two puppies based on your unique needs and personality, and allow you to make the final choice so your service dog is truly yours. Your service dog is then raised in our family home, accompanying us throughout our day and receiving professional, hands-on training. We send daily videos and photos and encourage you to visit as often as you like, so you can rest assured that you are receiving a highly trained, customized, and cherished addition to your health team. At the conclusion of the training program, we spend a full week teaching you how to ethically and appropriately handle your service dog. You will the be able to work together as a team and return to us as needed for any additional training.
It is very important to us that you are aware that our training program is not a "cut you loose after the dog is trained" affair. Our training expertise and advice is available 24/7 throughout the dog's life. If you need additional tasks taught or just support as a handler, we are here.
