Other details

We recommend students bring a support individual to class. We   appreciate   if   children   are   not   in   attendance,   except   a   disabled   child   that   is being partnered with the dog. You must select and secure your own dog for training. We   offer   significant   advice   regarding   the   selection   of   an   appropriate   dog    on   the PrepWork   page.      We   are   also   willing   to   review   a   potential   dog   you   identify   for suitability. Please   see   the   PrepWork   page   for   information   on   requirements   for   the   dog    that you select. Aggressive   dogs   will   not   be   tolerated   in   class.      No   refund   will   be   offered   if   you   bring a dog that is aggressive towards people, other dogs or small animals. Please   wait   to   send   a   deposit   until   we   have   reviewed   your   application,   spoken   to you and confirmed your dog is appropriate for our program. Our   goal   is   to   make   certain   you   succeed   as   a   Service   Dog   handler   -   once   we   receive your   application,   we   can   set   up   a   time   to   speak   over   the   phone   to   understand   your needs.
