The Approach

This one of a kind relational training system takes the lead with meeting the physical and emotional needs of owners.

                                                                        The Training Process

Training is completed in stages of 2 week intervals onsite with the trainer and 2 weeks back with the owner for a total of approx 3 Months for Emotional Needs Support Service Dogs and 4 Months for Physical Abilities Service Dogs.

                                                                                    The Dog

Within this system the owner gets to choose the potential service dog candidate.   The dog may already be a member of the family.

                                                                        Lifetime Commitment

Dale McCluskey Dog Training provides a lifetime commitment to its service dogs.  Any future training which may be needed including yearly certifications are included free.
