NEW!!! Service Dog / Therapy Dog Classes

Trainer: Anzi Brosh

Open to any dog with basic obedience skills and a calm friendly temperament.

Whether you want to do therapy work, need a service dog, or just want a very well trained dog in public, these classes will help you achieve this goal. There are certain rules and expectations that vary with each type of dog in a working capacity. Handlers will learn what those are, as well as the differences in the laws surrounding both.

Our trainer, Anzi, has over 10 years of experience in the field of service / therapy dog training. She has graduated many accomplished, certified, and ready for duty service dogs and handlers. The amount of time it takes until a dog is ready for the job varies widely upon the type of work the dog is to perform, the handler, and of course the learning ability of the dog. Some achieve their goal in a few months and for others it may take years, depending mostly on the amount of time we spend training as well as the age and temperament of the dog. This works as a “graduate when ready” idea but we strongly suggest you never stop training a working dog, to ensure that the dog’s performance skills stay accurate and reliable. These classes will not only help you train your dog but also educate handlers on existing service dog laws and regulations. All dogs and owners can benefit from these types of training classes. Besides, it is fun to meet new people, who are involved in all levels and types of work with their canine partners, and who would love to share their experience and knowledge.
