Having a fully trained Service Dog (SD) is not going to be completed in 2, 3, or even 6 months.  It usually takes 1-2 years to fully develop a SD, but it can also be really challenging to see the long-term vision of all the socialization that needs to be done as well as the required task training itself.  The good news is - we are here to help! 

Our Raise and Train program (RNT) is an intensive dog-training program that focuses on the fundamentals of the raising of a well-mannered puppy or dog while also implementing the foundation of sit, down, and place all with implied stay commands along with a recall (come command) and loose leash walking. All RNTs live in the home with the trainer while we work towards our goals! 

We offer RNTs that range from a 2 month programs to 6 months depending on the type of training or minor behavior modification that is required. Each RNT is specific to the individual dog and what you are looking for from your dog! We are relationship-based dog trainers meaning that we take time to build relationships and trust with your dog before we start pushing their boundaries and work towards your training goals!

All RNTs will be evaluated prior to booking to determine what length best meets your dog's needs and your goals! How advanced the obedience is is dependent on genetic factors, age, as well as the time that the dog is in our care. 

We understand that this is an investment and because we wholeheartedly believe in Our Mission, we do offer payment plans through affirm that makes training affordable for everyone!
