HOW DOES OUR TRAINING AND THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS WORK?
Many dog owners, as well as aspiring service animal owners, are seeking the benefits of a properly trained dog but do not know where to start as often the information you find online can be confusing. In reality it is not all that complex.
At the heart of our program we work together to prepare your dog to pass the Canine Good Citizenship / Public Access Test. By doing so the sky's the limits with what you can do with your pup, sport, show, service, the opportunities are endless as with a well-trained fury companion you can elevate together.
Once we have established the baseline in obedience, we step you through comprehensive courses to accomplish advanced socialization, agility, behavior management, and problem-solving skills in your dog. At each step of the process you as the handler and your dog earn a new level of certification, culminating in a final Free My Paws Training Academy Certification, we like to call it stepping our animals through grade-school, middle-school, high-school, college, masters, doctorate levels of training.

Yes we can help your pet become a PSA. Our Basic Obedience Program will give your dog all the skills it needs to behave appropriately to support you in daily life.
In addition, to qualify as a PSA, your dog will need to perform certain tasks specifically related to your psychiatric condition - such as applying pressure to avert a panic attack, or seeking assistance when needed. We offer this specialized training, via our online sessions, or, if you prefer, with one-to-one coaching from our expert trainers.
Work at your own pace, then, when you’re ready, submit a video of your dog demonstrating the tasks you’ve taught them. This can be recorded on any phone - no special set-up or equipment is needed.
Our trainers will evaluate your dog’s performance and, if they have reached the required standard, will award their Free My Paws Basic Obedience certification through Felicitails.
