Until now there has not been many options available for disabled people who have trained their own dog to help them with their disability, (as opposed to buying a fully trained assistance dog) and now need guidance to assess & validate their public access capability as a team.
CIA specializes in helping ADA disabled individuals develop or improve their service dog's manners and abilities to become a highly skilled working team in various public settings.
CIA has developed Public Access Skills Test to provide a formal exam analyzing the effort a service dog team have put into their individual training. The purpose of this evaluation test is to ensure that the service dog is stable and well-behaved, and the handler has control over the dog in everyday public challenges any team might encounter, like: hotels, stores, restaurants, vehicles, stairs, walkways, restrooms, elevators, and all types of people. Key significance of the evaluation test provides professional validation that the dog is indeed safe and in keeping with established standards of service dog behavior.
