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 10 weeks long. Training starts with an orientation, followed by 8 training days and ends with an optional testing day. All training takes place on Saturdays at the Redmond Masonic Lodge.
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.
