Its Difficult To Find Experienced Service Dog Trainers, Here’s My Solution

//Its Difficult To Find Experienced Service Dog Trainers, Here’s My Solution


Completely online virtual class where I can give you one on one feedback about how to train your own medical alert dog over the video conferencing program Zoom. Class starts August 30th!

I Was So Naive

I used to live in the most dog friendly city in the entire United States, Seattle Washington.  After moving to the St. Louis Missouri area I found that the dog culture and resources here are almost non existent.  So, if I, a highly educated, experienced service dog trainer was having a hard time finding experienced positive reinforcement trainers in the local vicinity of a major metropolitan city, how in the world were my students supposed to do the same if they lived sometimes hours away from a large city?  Because of my experience with the large training community in Seattle I was so naive to thing that my students would be able to find appropriate resources in their area if they lived in small communities across the world.  See what my solution is to this overwhelming problem in this weeks Medical Alert Dog Monday video.

So what do you think of our answer?   Do you think I was living in a bubble and really didnt understand the needs of my students?  What do you think of my solution?


Matilda is a trained POTS alert dog. She is a Labradoodle from our first Imprinted Puppy Puppy Litter. Find out how you can get a puppy like her to train for your child.

    I had no idea either. I live in Port Orchard across the sound from Seattle. Guess I was living in a bubble as well.
    My wife is diabetic, but we are older and thinking of getting an older dog. Can an old dog learn new tricks? Thank you
    for you dedication.
