Our service dogs are especially trained to assist our clients. We are dedicated to providing quality one-on-one time throughout the training and development of our dogs. By doing so, we have found that our puppies not only learn faster, but also get to enjoy a higher quality of life. The skills below are just a few of what our dogs are trained to detect.
- Diabetic alert dog
- Emotional support
- Mobility Assistance
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
We understand there is a wide variety of needs for those with autism, and therefore we train our dogs for each specific need. We train our service dogs with the client and family members to help care for the person with autism as to create that special bond they need to have with each other. We take our time to get to know client to make sure we train exactly for their needs. For our autistic clients we understand a service dog may be their first best friend, and we take that seriously into consideration.
Diabetic Alert Training
Our diabetic alert dogs are trained with the owner’s saliva, for high and low so they have a complete understanding of their owner’s scent. We use positive reinforcement to make the scent training fun and something they want to do. From children to adults we understand how life threatening this disease is. Therefore we ensure our dogs are trained correctly so they can alert every time our client is high or low.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Training
Scent imprint for dogs USA does not blanket train. Every client with PTSD is different. Because of this, we take our time and get to know our clients by building a relationship with them. This helps us train our dogs to meet every need. The training is done in a series of stages so that the dog is not with us for extended periods of time. Building the bond between our client and their dog is the most important part.. We truly take into consideration how important a service dog in giving our client back their freedom.
