There is a large and growing demand for service dog training support and a shortage of positive pet dog trainers with the knowledge and skills to offer this specialty. Service dog training takes typically more than 2 years of regularly scheduled training appointments. A wide range of services can be incorporated to train a service dog: from private lessons to group classes, board and train and day training. Service dog training clients are often very committed to their goals. It is a wonderful opportunity to work with committed, long-term clients and change lives!
Being skilled in training service dogs helps grow your pet dog training business too! Seniors, people with chronic illnesses or people who have a family member with a disability are drawn to trainers who can demonstrate experience training service dogs. Expertise in service dog training also brings in owners who want their puppy or dog to be “as well behaved as a service dog.”
