Hi,I was interested in more information on your service dog program. Who does your training? Are they certified? Also, is it possible to self-train to train dogs? Do you do training outside of rescue dogs?Thanks.
Yes, I saw where you had answered my Facebook post. I still have more questions, however.
Do you have your 501c3 status yet?
How does a soldier go about getting one of your dogs? Is it a private cost for them or something covered by their VA benefits? How long is their training?
Locally, we had a training course for therapy dog teams that would be visiting nursing facilities. The course lasted about 6-7 weeks and the CGC was administered by a licensed CGC representative afterwards. The dog were then tested by Therapy Dogs International. These dogs were still limited in their service abilities to welcoming facilities only.
I know each soldier's need is different, but can you give me examples of what your dogs have been trained to do beyond CGC requirements?
