The Amazing Service Dog!
Service Dog training is some of the most spectacular and difficult training in the canine world. It takes many years of dedication and patience to produce quality Service Dogs. We often take 'throw away' dogs that people don't want or can't handle and turn them into some of the most amazing dogs in the world!

All of our Service Dog candidates have come from rescues, shelters, or from people that wanted to donate a dog to us. To date we have not purchased or bred any dogs for service work. This is a win win situation, being able to save a dog that would most likely have been destroyed, training him, and being able to place him with a disabled person. 

Service Dogs have the right, set out by our federal government, to go almost anywhere their handlers go. Service Dogs are not considered pets, they are considered to be 'Service Animals'. 

For more information on the rights of access of Service Dogs, feel free to call us and ask any questions you might have.

Training:
The training that goes into a Service Dog is quite extensive. Many trainers claim to know how, but few are producing the results needed to qualify the dog as a Service Dog. It is most important to gain a very high level of reliability in the command to response ratio of the finished Service Dog. You will notice in one of our videos the dog I am handling will retrieve the Quad Cane many times in repetition. This is one of the key elements to the training process, making sure the dog will be extremely reliable when commanded to perform a physical task. Because in this moment the handler is in need of a Service Dog that will truly be ready, willing, and able to perform. 

Transition:
The transition of placing the Service Dog with the new owner can be a little tricky. However, a well trained dog will be able to make the transition. We do take time to make sure the dog is compatible with the handler but we don’t waste time in this area. Typically, within one year the two are working like clock work. The dog begins to hone in on the handler and his needs. It’s an amazing thing to see and is very gratifying for us as trainers. 

The dogs:
Most of our dogs are from shelters or rescue situations. Therefore, it’s a win win situation saving a dog’s life and placing him with a disabled person who is in need. Most of our dogs are Labrador Retrievers or Golden Retrievers. Although, from time to time we will use a mixed breed, if the dog shows a high level of aptitude. Our dogs are put through many different tests to evaluate the dog's ability to handle stress and to function in many different contexts. 

Your dog:
We are open to training your dog, however, we will have to discuss many points before taking on the task. There are many areas of the training that people do not understand. We have to assess each dog and handler situation and evaluate the client’s expectations vs. the feasibility of the dog’s aptitude for training. Unfortunately, many people think they have a legitimate Service Dog, but the reality is that most people that have not worked with an experienced trainer that specializes in training Service Dogs, do not have legitimate Services Dogs. This does not mean that the dog cannot qualify with the correct training. If you have a Service Dog and you are not sure if he qualifies or you have any questions about training, please feel free to call us and ask any questions you might have. 

Pricing:
Our Service Dogs start at $15,000 and go up depending on the amount and difficulty of the tasks you are needing from the dog. Service Dogs can be trained to perform many complex tasks. However, most people are simply looking for a few simple tasks. Keep in mind, in order for a dog to qualify as a Service Dog, giving him full access to almost all places his handler goes, he must perform physical tasks that relate to the handler's disabilities. It is best to call us so that we can get an understanding of your expectations and discuss what it is that would most likely work best for you. 

Waiting Lists:
There is no waiting list with us. It is simply a matter of finding the right dog for you and training him. Typical training time is 30 to 90 days. During this time it is possible to visit your dog to see what the training process is, to begin to understand giving commands, and obviously to bond with your dog. It is also good for us to understand what your disabilities are and to see what you are capable of doing physically. This information will help us to adjust our training to meet your needs. Once the training is finished, we delivery your dog to you and spend time with you training with your new service dog. Depending on where you are located, we will structure the process to make sure you get all the training you need. Typically,the dogs are trained so well that the transition and acclimation is very smooth and there really aren't any hiccups in the process. Nevertheless, if there is an issues, we are always there to make any needed adjustments and to make sure that you are comfortable with you new service dog!

Jill & Maya the Service Dog
Watch this amazing video as Jill Reed shows the love and devotion that her service dog, Maya, has for her. Maya assists Jill in many ways, including retrieving items, pulling the laundry basket around and many other ways. This videos shows Maya performing some of those tasks for Jill. The producer asks Jill what Maya means to her. Her response is a very emotional and riveting explanation of what the love and bond between her and Maya is all about! Maya was procured, trained and placed by Jeremy Talamantes, the president and founder of K-9 Assistance Services, Inc. Jeremy has a stellar reputation for training some of the best service dogs in the world. We hope you enjoy the video.
Meet Tiko & Edison!
Tiko and his parents came to us for help in their search for a service dog for their son, Tiko, who was diagnosed with Autism. They knew they wanted a service dog, but they were confused on how to get the process started, and they did have some apprehensions. Through our knowledge and experience, we were able to make them comfortable and help them step by step through the process. 

We matched Tiko up with a very sweet young dog who was named Edison. Edison, like most young dogs, had a few minor issues through the training process, but after the required training, he is referred to now as 'perfect!' 

I trained Edison, and I saw changes in Tiko that were amazing! I actually brought things to Tiko's mom's attention that she hadn't noticed. Tiko's behavior changed in a positive way over the course of him coming to see Edison while he was in training. One thing I would never do is sell a service dog based on creating such a mysterious and unique bond between the dog and his new handler. However, I can attest to the fact that very unique things can happen in the process; things that can have a great positive impact on a person's life!

I am very fortunate to have met Tiko and his parents, and to have them as a story in my life and my career.

Service Dogs Are Very Unique Dogs With Spectacular Training!
Although most dog trainers like to dispute basic obedience training methods among each other, I'm pretty sure that most dog trainers will agree that the average service dog is a pretty unique dog with spectacular training! Depending on the dog, the trainer, and the expectations of the handler, service dogs can get from months of training to years of training. It not only takes a special dog and trainer, it takes time, energy, resources, and a lot of patience.  

The requirements and knowledge needed to train a service dog will scare many average obedience trainers away, in contrast... it will draw most trainers that like a challenge and that want to better themselves as trainers! Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean a dog trainer is good just because he trains service dogs; it is always important to do your due diligence when searching for a qualified dog trainer!

All of the dogs that we use are either from a shelter or directly from a rescue situation. Our clients have always taken great pride in knowing their new K9 friend's life was saved through their efforts. It has always been fun and gratifying for us to literally go to the shelter and save the dog's life that will be entered into our program. 

Feel free to call us at any time so that we can answer any service dog questions that you might have!

Meet Kathy & Maya!
We have trained many many dog for people with Multiple Sclerosis over the years! It has been an honor and a privilege to have this opportunity. All of the people we have worked with have been kind, patient, and truly a pleasure to work with. We definitely look forward to many more clients!

People with disabilities commonly have service dogs because it allows them to be as independent as possible; some have even described it as being 'normal.' Whatever the reason, we are always there to help them sustain or gain the independence they are seeking. Service dogs are nothing short of amazing animals that do amazing things for their owners! 

We have trained two dogs for Kathy and her husband Michael, whom both have Multiple Sclerosis. Kathy has been an absolute pleasure to work with through the process of training both dogs. We trained the dogs to open and close doors, carry objects, and pull a cart on wheels. We have learned a lot as trainers through the process of training these amazing service dogs for Kathy and Michael.
