Train your own service dog:   Most people cannot afford to purchase a fully trained service dog and you might already have a dog that may be a good candidate to be a Service Dog.

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. The SDIT program includes:

  • Weekly or bi-weekly private & group training sessions (24 sessions)
  • Public access obedience training
  • Service Dog specific skills
  • Training Equipment
  • Canine Good Citizen (CGC) testing
  • Canine Good Citizen Advanced (CGCA) testing
  • Urban Canine Good Citizen testing

Dogs must be five months or older, be friendly toward other dogs and people, be well socialized and confident in new environments.

If you have a puppy, we recommend starting with Puppy 1 and Puppy 2 Manners group classes and then entering the Train Your Own Service Dog program.

For  a Diabetic Alert Dog (DAD), you must have access to low breath samples of 70 or below to train with.
