Webinar: Train Your Own Service Dog 101 – May 21, 7PM

Service animals can be life-changing, providing much-needed freedom to their handlers. Similar to a wheelchair or portable oxygen, service animals allow their handlers to participate fully in society by mitigating effects of a disability.

There are two common ways service dogs are trained:

  • By an organization, where they are raised from birth and trained to a very high level before being placed in a home
  • By an individual, who trains their own dog with the guidance of a trainer

Both of these methods are effective, and both are completely legal and legitimate ways to obtain a service dog.

This webinar will introduce the steps to the second method, answering questions such as:

  • Who could benefit from a dog that has been trained to perform assistance tasks?
  • What resources are required, and what are the qualities of someone who could be successful at training their own service dog?
  • What qualities are required for a dog to be successful at becoming a task-trained service dog?
  • What does a training program for an owner-trained service dog entail?
  • What are the laws regarding Service Dogs and Public Access in the Province of Ontario?

Capacity is limited to 100 on a first-come first serve basis – Please arrive punctually!

If we reach capacity or you miss the live event, don’t worry, we will be recording the webinar for viewing later.

  1. Hi, I missed the May webinar about training your own service dogs. Was this recorded? Will it be occurring again? Thanks.

  2. I am looking for Service Dog trainer that has a good reputation who will certify a Service Dog (not required in Ontario but still asked by ODSP and even the HRTO!). Jean Bruce, one of the founders of Service Dog of Canada, certified my first Service Dog that passed away. Now, I am looking for someone else who can do the same for my new Service Dog.
