SERVICE DOG TRAINING
Public Skills Training & Evaluation
Do you need to train your own Service / Assistance / Medical Alert dog on all the necessary public access skills to go everywhere in the world with you?
Until now there have not been many options available for disabled people who want to train 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 utilizes AKC Canine Community & Canine Urban tests. The purpose of these evaluations 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, such as hotels, stores, restaurants, vehicles, stairs, walkways, restrooms, elevators, and all types of people and equipment. The key significance of these evaluation tests provides professional validation that the dog is indeed safe and in keeping with established standards of service dog behavior.
