SERVICE DOG

TRAINING

After thorough obedience training, service dog training teaches your dog the tasks to perform to mitigate your disability (see this sample list of tasks your dog could learn).

 

I will be creating a page here for sample tasks for psychiatric disabilities, so tune back in soon, and  many YouTube videos provide instruction.

 

Basic service tasks can be taught easily--many can be taught even more easily than basic obedience and public behavior! However, complex work (e.g., guide dogs for visually impaired individuals) can require much more training.
