What does it take?

Who is eligible to get a service dog?

A person who has a physical or developmental handicap and might benefit from having an aid dog. Interaction with a therapy dog may be beneficial not only for patients, but also for the professionals who work in many organizations that offer physical and mental health care to their clients. However, a therapy dog is not the same as a service dog. Due to the extensive time commitment necessary to train a service dog, Puptown only accepts a select number of applicants each year. Puptown Dallas partners with funding programs to ensure that handicapped veterans, EMTs, and first responders may afford a dog and service dog training. Puptown Dallas will train and place a service dog with a veteran, police officer, or other first responder who is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), mobility issues, or any other condition at no cost to the individual.

How much does it cost?

Puptown Dallas partners with grant programs to provide free service dog training to military personnel, police officers, and EMTs. Due to the limited capacity to teach dogs each year, applications are required. Puptown Dallas provides a monthly training fee reduction, financing options, and financial help to individuals who do not qualify for our standard rates. It is common for the total cost of acquiring and training a service dog to be between $30,000 and $50,000. Service dog training courses in Puptown Dallas often cost between $10,000 and $15,000. Interested parties are encouraged to get in touch with us for further information about the many funding, financing, and support initiatives we provide.

Should I fill out an application for a service dog?

There is no current application procedure in Puptown. However, we request that anybody interested in getting a service dog or having their present dog trained to schedule an interview with us so that we may learn more about their specific needs and interests.

About how long does it take to train a service dog?

Training a service dog may take anything from a few months to several years, depending on the dog’s age, the complexity of the duties it has to learn, and the dog’s natural aptitude for learning. Puptown Dallas would love to assist you choose out a service dog, but we recognize that this isn’t always feasible. Unfortunately, not all dogs are suitable for service dog training, and even fewer will achieve the desired results. Training an older dog with preexisting obedience skills takes at least three months. Six months to a year is the average.

Is there a kind of disability that you do not accommodate? ​

Unfortunately, we are unable to assist anyone who are deaf, blind, or need a detection dog at this time. But we have dogs available to help with things like seizure response, mobility issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. If you need any other information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

We Love To

Establish a situation where everyone benefits

Because we recognize that each dog is unique, we are able to provide optimal results for you and your pet. We’ll assess your pet’s current skill level and develop a training strategy to help you both succeed. We have based our strategy on three pillars that have proven effective in the past. You may count on them to include:

Timing – We teach you and your dog to learn the connection between actions and their consequences. If you wait too long to reward your dog for doing anything well, he may forget why he is getting praise. It should come within 1.3 seconds.

Consistency – You will learn the importance of being consistent and communicating clearly. Your dog’s key behaviors need consistent responses. In this manner, he will understand.

Motivation – To motivate your dog is to influence his or her choice. You’re able to motivate others in a favorable way by utilizing words of praise, stroking, and treats. Ignoring the behavior, not stroking the dog, or giving a strong “no” are all effective negative motivators.

By understanding your dog and following correct training principles you will reach the goals needed to enhance your lives. Puptown Dallas is here for you. Contact us soon.
