Our Training Fees...
Our dogs go through a two year training program. At about fourteen months old the dogs may start living with you full time depending on your situation. We start with an eight-week old puppy so your child can grow up with the dog.

Our two-year training program is a complete package. Our fees include the dog, the first two years of veterinary care, and everything you need to get started once the dog is placed in your home such as a no pull leader, easy walk harness for tethering your child, hands free leash, service dog vest, and such. Unlike other service dog companies, we train you over the two years to handle the service dog. You and your child will see the dog grow and learn. We will train you over the two years by visiting your home on a regular basis to teach you everything you need to know.
