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.
