Obedience and Task Training

West Palm Dog offers both obedience and task training for service dog prospects. Service dogs are dogs that perform work or tasks for disabled people.

Service dog prospects and their owners are evaluated to determine if they are suited for the work and able to commit to the training program.

Marti and her staff have achieved an absolute transformation of our difficult-to-manage puppy into a great candidate to be our service dog. We have been amazed at the way in which his training has made him into a well-behaved, loving pet and helper. Although a Giant breed, he is gentle, obedient, and aware of his surroundings. None of this would have been possible without the quality of training he received from Marti and her staff. While there is more work to be done with him, we could not be more pleased with the progress he has made.
