The tuition is $3000.
This brand-new course is now available!
Prerequisites for the course: complete the Behavior/Obedience course (online or in person). The Behavior/Obedience course can be completed in as little as 6 weeks but access is granted for up to a year, so long as payment agreements are current.
Course requirements for graduation: complete all course material and homework assignments, send a video to your instructor of your dog/s completing service dog tasks. The final grade will be determined by this video. As with all of our courses, a minimum overall score of 80% is required in order to graduate. Graduates are certified as a Service Dog Trainer.
Students are encouraged to also attend on-site (for up to a week) at our training center during an ongoing service dog trainer course…at no extra charge! This will aid in the hands-on aspect of dog training. Be advised that there are prerequisites for your visit. The visit is designed to be towards the end of the course. Therefore, at the time of your visit, you and your dog will need to be on cold trails and the task training should be rather solid. Your visit will help to expand the skills of both you and your dog. Check with us for available dates. If you are not far enough along in by one of these dates, you must wait until the next available date.
Please note that once your course account is set up, there will be no refunds.
