American Society of Canine Trainers Certification
Dogs will receive training for detection, tracking, patrol work, etc. that meets the ASCT certification standards. Dogs will be considered fully trained and ready to work live. The training may be issued as a one time certification similar to a title in schutzhund/AKC tracking/Nosework, or a working title as long as the handler/owner goes through a school with the dog. This training is offered for those that already have a pet dog and want it trained in a speciffic discipline. Police and Sheriff Departments wanting a trained dog need to check the information on the police canine page. Rates include the boarding of the dog and miles traveled. Equipment and food is not covered and owners must provide it.
Detection (Narcotics, Explosives, HRD, etc.)- $3,500- roughly 6-8 weeks
Search and Rescue or Patrol Tracking- $4,500 – roughly 10-12 weeks
Dual Purpose Detection/Tracking- $5,500 – roughly- 12-16 weeks
The dog will come away with an ASCT title certification. Meaning the dog cannot be worked live (unless handler/owner goes through a school and certifies with the dog).
