Service Dogs

Owner Trained Service Dog Program

Nine Realms Canine Training is proud to work alongside individuals that are seeking guidance training their own dogs for service work. At Nine Realms Canine Training we believe that if an individual needs a service dog they should not be limited by the high cost of a fully trained dog. This is why Nine Realms offers individuals with qualified dogs the ability to join the Owner Trained Service Dog Program. Handlers meet several times a month (as few as two per month and as many as desired) for private lessons. Anyone looking to enter this program must have a disability that qualifies them for a service dog. Individuals may already have a dog or may work with Nine Realms to select an adult dog or puppy. If an interested individual already has a dog and wishes to train it for service work, the dog must pass an evaluation before being allowed into the program. Handlers and dogs then train several times a month, working on obedience, tasks, and public access until the dog is a fully trained service dog. All dogs are certified through the American Society of Canine Trainers and must pass the Canine Good Citizen test and a Public Access test.

Below are some of the types of service dogs Nine Realms trains for. (We do not train Guide Dogs.)

Diabetic Alert Service Dogs

Allergen Detection Service Dogs

Mobility Service Dogs

Psychiatric Service Dogs

Hearing Service Dogs

Medical Alert Service Dogs

Currently we do not offer fully trained service dogs but are more than capable to acquire dogs with suitable temperament for training at the client’s expense. Some board and train for service work is available.

Clients wishing to owner train with guidance from Nine Realms’ Master Trainer Karin Wagemann are highly encouraged to call or email for more information and a sample of the training contract.
