Service Dog Training

Service Dog Training – WE SPECIALIZE IN LURE AND FOCUS TRAINING

Pawsitive Service Dog Training Results

At Hot Dog On A Leash, our Service Dog Training Program is different than most in that we involve the client in the actual training of their dog. In the case that the owner is not physically capable of being involved in the training, the owner must provide an assistant that will be involved in the day to day training and care of the dog. Most NPO’s (Non-Profit Organizations) that provide already trained service animals have long waiting lists. In addition, some people already have a dog that they desire to train rather than adding a new dog to the family. While all dogs are not suitable for the work, some are. We can also assist the client with the purchased, donated, or rescued dog who is capable of doing the work.

Types of Service Dogs we Train:

  • Seizure Alert Dogs
  • Ptsd Dogs
  • Psychiatric Dogs
  • Diabetes Alert Dogs
  • Hearing Impaired Dogs
  • Autism Dogs
  • Mobility Dogs
  • Companion Dogs
  • Emotional Support Dogs
  • Dogs for Wheel Chair Bound
  • And Much More…….

Requirements:

Letter From a Physician

We require a letter from a licensed physician or psychiatrist prior to training a Service Dog. Please do not inquire about training a Service Dog if you simply want to be able to take your pet dog into places that otherwise would not allow him. This is an ABSOLUTE requirement. Your dog must pass the Public Access Test or equivalent.

Proper dog to do the work

The applicant must have the proper dog to do the work. The dog must not be overly fearful or aggressive to humans or other dogs. If the applicant’s dog does not pass the temperament test, a new dog will be a requirement. At this point, the applicant may choose to either go with an NPO for the purchase of an already trained dog or choose to continue with a donated, rescued, or purchased a dog at his/her discretion.

Public Access Test

Your dog must pass the Public Access Test or equivalent.

Good in Public

The dog must prove to be good in public. It must not be aggressive to dogs or humans, must stay by the owner’s side without being a nuisance, and must follow commands without the need of forceful correction. The dog should be able to navigate through crowds of people, in and out of doorways, and calmly lay down next to or under a table as appropriate.

Testimonials

5 stars for Hot Dog On A Leash. My golden retriever Jackson had been to many trainers, but the issues were never resolved. I can now walk Jackson with or without a leash and not have to worry about being pulled down. He loves going to Puppy Camp, 5 days a week, and has even gotten over his fear of water. Jackson also went through the Therapy Dog Program that Hot Dog On A Leash offers and gives kisses on a daily basis. Paws up for this amazing company and the trainers!

I know first hand that the Hot Dog on a Leash team is AWESOME.

As an client of Heather and Randy’s, I applaud their dedication to protect a dog they’re pet sitting. I feel extremely comfortable allowing them to come into my home and take my puppy to play for awhile!! Our dogs ALWAYS HAVE FUN and are alwsys return safe and very tired 🙂

When I have the occasion to bring my own dog, he plays with the dogs brought to the park by Heather/Randy and LOVES LOVES LOVES the attention he gets from them as well! An OUTSTANDING team of PROFESSIONALS all around!!!

Hazel is a Carin Terrier. She would run out the door to chase squirrels and rabbits and not come back when called. We always had to walk her on a leash for fear of her running off at our beach house. We were referred to Hot Dog On A Leash and Hazel is now off leash and comes back when called. Thank you to the wonderful trainers at Hot Dog On A Leash.

We rescued a 7 month old cocker/poodle last July. We are his 4th home! Needless to say, he had some definite behavioral issues. After only 5 weeks of training, he has shown remarkable improvement! We are ALL much happier! Randy and Heather are extremely knowledgable, experienced and professional. We are so impressed with the results that we have decided to continue with “therapy and service dog training”.

I couldn’t be happier with the care and attention my 7 month old husky puppy is getting with her training. We started Rogue at 5 months old in Basic Obedience and have since moved up to Advance Obedience training. I have always had prompt replies with all the staff and flexibility with scheduling.

I feel a tremendous amount of pride when my friends tell me I have such a awesome dog. It’s Hot Dog On A Leash’s understanding and enthusiasm that makes them such great trainers. Our daily routine has gone from a disconnected disaster to flawless joy! 5 STARS. Keep up the awesome work!

Heather communicated quickly and followed up on some concerns expeditiously and is working with us to help ensure that our challenges are addressed. The initial training went well and Heather’s professional follow-up on their guarantee is greatly appreciated.
