Training Program
Our training program was designed by our three on staff trainers who have over 40 cumulative years experience training service dogs and over 50 cumulative years experience training dogs. Between them they have over 14 dogs with AKC advanced degrees and nationally titled dogs. Their experience includes, obedience, schutzhund, service dog, therapy dog, bomb and police dog training.
Puppies
Our puppies start their training at about 8 weeks old and then continue with a year and a half of intensive training by female inmates at the IDOC's Helping Paws Service Dog Training Program in IL. This highly successful training program has been in operation for over 14 years. Our organization provides continual training for as long as the recipient has their service dog and we attend IEP meetings at school for children who receive one of our service dogs.
