Are You Ready To Start Training Your Service Dog?
If you are looking to train a working service dog, you’ve come to the right place! Affordable Service Dog Training by Top Dog has helped people with disabilities train their own dogs for over 30-years and has certified more than 150 dog/owner teams.
If you want to train a dog but don’t have one, we have helped many clients acquire a suitable dog or even a particular breed. We have rescued dogs from local animal shelters and have matched several career change dogs. We take great care in matching the personality of both the person with the dog.
Although there is no such thing as an ideal service dog breed, the best candidates must exhibit confidents and not be the least bit aggressive toward other dogs, animals, or people. They must be spayed or neutered, ideally no less than six months nor more than four years of age, and weigh at a minimum of 40 pounds to be considered for the program.
