Yes! The SDC™ program includes content on a wide range of service dog specialties including psychiatric service dogs. The SDC program covers foundation task training, knowledge, temperament requirements, public access assessments and business tools that are needed to train all service dogs. Step by step task training is included in the program, including “training recipes” for tasks often needed for service dogs for people with PTSD such as an anxiety alert and Deep Pressure Therapy.
