Please describe the training program the Service Dog receives?

A:

Our Service Dogs receive six to twelve months of training, including several months of training to your specific needs and circumstances (this last period depends on how extensive your needs are). While circumstances vary, our goal is for training to be fun and positive through reward-based training (treats for training and intermittent reinforcement after that) as opposed to primarily punishment or modeling because studies have found that then the dogs are less likely to have behavior problems such as fear and aggression.
