How do you get a fearless dog? By great socialization training, of course! Socialization is a not only a key component of a well-behaved service dog, it's important for pet dogs, too! In fact, the number one reason dogs end up in shelters is under socialization. Socializing Puppies: The Service Dog Way To show how awesome well-socialized puppies can be, watch how two of our board and train pups, Cooper and Daisy, handle themselves around emergency personnel during a critical stage in their development.

Things were getting fuzzy for Judith at the grocery store. Her 2-year old Golden Retriever, Citka, was jumping on her, mouthing her arm, trying to pull her off the electric cart (she is safer on the floor when things get this way), and a saleswoman nearby was very upset, thinking this was a badly-behaving service dog. But there wasn't anything wrong with Citka, he was doing his job by doing everything in his power to tell Judith there was something wrong.

Operations Manager Carrie Rubens' Dog Rondo As The Service Dog Academy's operations manager, I spent a good amount of time helping Mary prepare for her classes, stuffing Kongs, getting future students enrolled in the classes, and championing her successful positive reinforcement dog training program.
