But only to those
who know how to listen"

Custom Service Dog Training

White Wolf Dog Training provides custom training for service dog owners based on individual needs. We use positive reinforcement methods to teach the behaviours that are necessary for dogs working in public settings and to train the specific tasks you need from the canine partner in your life. Our trainers have experience working with children, adults, and families training their dogs to create successful dog/handler teams.
We specialize in a personalized approach that focuses on how your partnership with your service dog will help you overcome the challenges you face in your home and public. We use positive reinforcement methods to teach the behaviours that are necessary for dogs working in public settings and to train the specific tasks you need from the canine partner in your life. We either find a perfect puppy for our client, adopt and train, or start training a dog that the client already owns.
Service/Emotional dogs increase freedom and independence by assisting in everyday life. Service/Emotional dogs can improve the lives of people with a wide range of disabilities, whether physical, neurological, or psychiatric. We train dogs to mitigate symptoms of many disabilities such as autism, anxiety disorders, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, hearing impairment, multiple sclerosis (MS), narcolepsy, post-traumatic stress (PTS or PTSD), severe allergies, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). We also often customize tasks for a specific client’s needs.
