PSD Training & Assessment

Train your own dog with the help of our professional dog trainer. We provide 10 virtual training sessions with a psychiatric service dog trainer and three (3) clinical appointments with your licensed mental health professional or physician. This will ensure your PSD is well trained in obedience and trained to perform a service, task, or work that directly helps you with some aspect of your disability. This ensures you have on-going professional support from both your dog trainer and licensed provider. Successful completion of training results in a certificate of training that is valid for the life of your dog. Once your dog is fully trained, your licensed provider will issue a PSD approval, which is valid for 12 months.
