Selecting Your Pre-Qualified Service Dog
The single most important factor to your success in finding, assimilating, training, certifying, and having longevity in service is the proper selection and early development of the proper puppy for you. Only 33% of all puppies specifically bred for service work qualify to enter a service or therapy dog program and only 42% of those prospects will pass their certification. If you are going to opt to train your own service dog rather than purchase a professionally trained service dog, time and the odds of success are not in your favor. Let us help you properly select a young prospect for you. It will be critical to you reaching your goal. Our 30+ years of experience with brokers, breeders, and the best service dog trainers in the world give us access to litters and the pick of those qualified puppies.
Our sourced service dogs are from the finest breeders in Europe. Each is selected for its high success in producing elite service dogs. The right puppy started in our early development programs makes it possible for Daryl to start molding the core skill set, behavior, temperament, etc needed to graduate at the top of their class.
