Owner Trained Service Dogs
The benefits of an owner-trained Service Dog are UNBEATABLE...The owners get to pick the style of dog that most appeals to them....It's age, size, shape, temperament (busy or laid-back) purebred or 'mixed' is up to the owner. When an owner starts with a young dog or puppy, the bonding process starts instantly...the dog learns it's job in the environment it will be living and working in with the person or people it will be working for and who love it.
In many cases a pet dog is so bonded that it exhibits behaviors that can be molded - the dog seems to notice a distressed handler, a child with seizures or gets upset when their owners blood sugar rises or falls but it's a breed that is not typically associated with traditional service work.
Our teams are required to work 100 or more hours to receive a Paws-Abilities LLC Service Dog Team Certification.
