Trained Therapy Dogs

Due to the increased demand of trained therapy dogs and our desire to maintain high standards of training, the wait time for a trained, adult dog is 1 year.   However, there is no wait for contract or puppy training.  We offer a variety of training options and each contract is customized to fit your needs.

If you are confident in your ability to follow through and maintain the training of a young dog, we can get a puppy started and the cost would be on the lower end.  If you have never had a dog before and you need him to move into your house or facility with little effort, the price will naturally be higher.

The prices range from $4,000 (therapy dog) to $10,000 (fully trained Service Dog).  If you are interested in one of our dogs, please email me for an application.  The dogs are fully vetted (neuters/spayed and shots), and they come with a training video,  a crate, leash and collar.  The buyer is responsible for any shipping or transportation cost ($300 to $400).
