Train your own service dog:   Not everyone can afford to purchase a fully trained service dog and some folks already have a dog that may be suitable for this work. If your dog cuts the grade and you want to learn how to train your own service dog, we will help you do that. A mixture of private and group classes will occur at the MDT facility as well as at public access locations (restaurants, shopping malls, etc.). We can help you train your dog to be a:

  • Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD),
  • Mobility Dog or
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Service Dog.

The six month training program includes weekly training sessions and many bonuses to help you prepare for service dog testing as well as provide on-going support thereafter. SDIT program includes:

  • Weekly training sessions (24 sessions)
  • Public access obedience training
  • Diabetic Alert Dog, Service Dog, DAD, Diabetic Alert Service Dog, Michigan Dog Training, Standard Poodle, Plymouth, Michigan
