We facilitate the needs of the disabled to self train their own service dog, enabling them to become self reliant and self sufficient.
This course is specifically for puppies 3-6 months of age. It is designed to teach the basic good puppy behaviors, socialization, puppy care and a little obedience. We will teach you about your new puppy, typical puppy behaviors and how to survive the potty training, chewing, and other fun puppy stages. At the end of this course we offer the AKC Puppy STAR test. This is a 6 week course.
