A support animal requires no training, however a service dog is trained to perform a task to mitigate the handler's mental or physical disability.
Each training cycle is seven weeks long. Training starts with an orientation, followed by six training days. All training takes place on Saturdays.
Temperament matters more than breed; However, wolf hybrids are not allowed. The Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, Standard Poodle and Collie are the most commonly used breeds.
