The Process of Training a Service Dog

A sire and dam that have suitable temperaments, longevity, genetics and structure are paired.

About 63 days later, a litter of 4 - 12 puppies are born.

While in the whelping stage, puppies are introduced to various sights, sound desensitization, surfaces, scents and people of all ages to prepare them for the real world.

A puppy will be matched with a Puppy Raiser.  Over the next 18-24 months, the process of training will begin.  The dog will learn basic manners.  Also, advanced training will be given matching what the recipient of the dog needs.
