Before you make your decision we want to be sure you are aware of a couple of requirements before you continue.
We are committed to producing excellent Service Dogs which are capable of performing to their Full Potentials, and this requires diligence and commitment from the trainer (you).
1. Students are expected to do their best work. Our teacher-trainers will be working closely with you daily to answer questions and critique your lessons. Not only do you come out of this course with a well-trained dog, but you learn the fundamentals of dog training so that you have the skills to continue your dog’s training.
2. You will need to have purchased or are going to purchase the textbook for the Basic Foundation Skills Course, currently titled "Your Service Dog School Textbook" by Lelah Sullivan (If you receive a qualifying scholarship, the Textbook will be provided).
3. You will be required to submit a short training video (approximately 1 minute) for each “Hands-on Training” section of our course, therefore you will need a phone or digital camera that will allow you to take video.
4. You are required to work with your trainer until you achieve a passing grade because when you finish this course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion that documents all of your hard work.
If you are ready to proceed on this awesome journey with your canine Partner, click on the “Basic Foundation Skills” box below and this will take you to a sign in page where you would select "New Account" above the username box. The cost for the complete training course is $3000 and can be paid via Paypal/credit card.
