Is a service dog for you? Is owner-training a service dog for you? What kinds of things should you consider before diving in and obtaining a puppy for service work? What is the general cost of raising and training your own service dog? What are things to be wary of? Do you have any advice for owner-trainers?

In my first installment of a multi-part series about owner-training, I talk about things to consider when determining whether or not owner-training is for you, as well as general cost estimates and different pros and cons. At the end, I give some advice that I wish I had known starting out! My next video will be about the choosing your dog/puppy from a shelter or breeder, the importance of choosing a proper breeder if you decide to go that route, how to spot the “right” breeder, and more!

I hope you enjoyed watching this and I can’t wait to hear from you all! Happy 2018!
