Your dog trained as your service dog
Personalized and Professional
Our program is divided into 3 levels of training. In addition to your sessions with one of our accredited trainers, you’ll receive detailed step by step training plans for each one of the behaviors, as well as tutorial videos and flyers. At the end of each level of training, your dog will be assessed to make sure he/she is ready for the next level. We also prepare your dog for the AKC CGC evaluations.
How long does it take?
Learning at your pace
Based on the industry guidelines (IAADP), training any Service Dog takes on average from 6 months to a year depending on your dog’s age, on how much time you have to work with your dog, how quickly your dog takes to the training and whether there are certain behavior problems that need to be addressed. Overall you should expect to spend 120 hours of training and 30 hours or working out in public places to complete the entire program (see details below).
Our Service Dog Training Programs
Assessing Your Dog – $120
Prior to starting our training program, all dogs must be evaluated for temperament and trainability. The assessment provides an estimation of what your dog’s chances are of becoming a service dog. Passing the evaluation does not guarantee that your dog will make it all the way through the program, however, but it allows us to make sure your dog has a chance to be trained as your service dog.
During the assessment, we’ll also discuss your particular training needs and help you define a game plan to accomplish your goals.
Single Coaching Session – $120
If you need a session or two to address certain specific behaviors, booking single coaching sessions may be the way to go. You can schedule the sessions either at our facility at 6120 Allisonville Road, Indianapolis, IN or online if you live too far to drive to us.
Each session is an hour.
Individual Coaching Packages
You might need specialized coaching and would like to book several sessions at a time for a reduced cost.
Each session is an hour either at our facility or online.
Package of 3 sessions: $354.00
Package of 6 sessions: $660.00
Package of 10 sessions: $1050.00
Puppy Coaching – $75 subscription/month
You have a new puppy and are waiting to join our group classes or our Board & Train program. This program is perfect for puppies 3-6 months old. Get the help of one of our certified trainers and teach your puppy how to:
- Stop biting
- Potty outside
- Accept a crate
- Walk on a leash without pulling
- Socialize with new dogs and people
- and more
The class is open to all puppies, pet dogs, and service dog candidates. Join the class once a week on Wednesdays from 6-7:00 EST.
Certifying Your Service Dog – $120
After completion of our training program, you’ll be ready to pass the Public Access Test along with the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. Both tests are given at the same time. The assessment is given in person in a public place in Indianapolis. We cannot assess your dog remotely.
Our Public Access Test is an assessment based on the test developed by Assistance Dogs International and has become the standard for most service dog organizations.
Once you pass the assessment, you will receive an ID and certification letter from us as proof that your dog has met our standards and is a fully trained service dog by all legal definitions of the law. This certificate is valid for one year.
