Although you will be getting a fully trained dog, upon placement there is still extensive training involved. Your dog will not know you, the tambour of your voice, your small movements, your lifestyle. You will be asked to observe training sessions for a number of weeks, then complete a rigorous Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 two week training course, then return to us once a week for 12 weeks, once a month for 12 months, and once a quarter the rest of your dog’s life. We require these high standards of training to ensure that your dog is always at peak performance.
