Owners training their own service dogs is growing in popularity – but does not always have reliable results. The dilemma is twofold: Owners aren’t aware they have access to qualified trainers, and trainers don’t realize they have the necessary service dog training knowledge and skills. Your dog training business can be the solution! Explore current trends in owner training and how you can easily integrate a four-stage service dog training program into the services you already offer.

This webinar will help you:

Learn what it takes to create a successful service dog.
Offer service dog training as a new line of business.
Address all stages of service dog training, from foundation training to advanced tasks, and public access.
Support clients in selecting the right dog.
Help clients maintain a training program.
