We provide Service Dog Training in Houston and surrounding areas. At Dog Training of Houston, we employ the most qualified, elite trainers to provide our cliental the best Service Dog Trainers around. Service Dog Training covers a wide range of disabilities and the dogs are sometimes labeled as assistance dogs. We specialize in training Service Dogs for wounded warriors/veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and civilians with disabilities such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, manic depression, etc.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, issued "ADA 2010 Revised Requirements; Service Animals." It states that:
"Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
Service Dogs are working dogs, although they provide and invaluable service just by being by a person’s side. The connection, companionship and love a Service Dog provides its owner is insurmountable above all other therapy.
We do not limit the Service Dog Training to wounded warriors; we do help civilians, since PTSD is not limited to a military term. There are many service dog organizations that exist throughout the country and offer excellent quality dogs. Here at Dog Training Houston, we provide local training and, if needed, rescue local dogs, which immensely cut down on the cost of Service Dog Training. We are extremely proud to provide a SPECIAL program for disable veterans, so call us today to find out the details.
We are happy to provide a free consultation; to assess your dog, your home life, your specific needs and to discuss our programs in detail and the one that fits your particular situation. The Service Dog Training will immense shortly thereafter.
We offer a variety of training packages. The Service Dog Training would come in various phases. The different phases could consist of in-home training, training at our facility and public place. We want our client and Service Dogs do learn to adjust too many different public situations. Our ultimate goal is to have our client become fully functioning, productive people with purpose and confidence in today’s world. All Service Dogs and clients are trained to pass the Public Access Tests as dictated by Assistance Dogs International. Once these basic commands are completed, we train the dogs to address specific needs of the client. For example, those whose suffer from PTSD experience night terrors. We train the service dogs so they immediately sense when the client is having a night terror. The dog alerts the client to quickly awakened so they my reoriented to the here and now.
Trained Service Dogs must regularly update their vaccinations, maintain heartworm and flea/tick prevention and have a local veterinarian. We can help assist in finding a great veterinarian that will fit within you budget.
Of course, the client will have to participate in a lot of the training. It will be expected that you Train your Service Dog daily between training sessions. This is of the utmost importance to insure the best quality Service Dog Training for you and your dog.
