Service dogs are specially trained to assist people with certain disabilities and conditions, including:
- Visual impairment
- Hearing impairment
- Mobility impairment
- Anxiety disorders
- Mental illnesses including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
At K-9 Companions, our service dog training program is different than most in that we involve the dog owner in the actual training. If the owner is not physically capable, an assistant who will be involved in the day-to-day care of the dog must be present for the training.
