There are days when we just don't want to get out of bed, let alone go out into public. Dogs, get us motivated, take them for a walk, sit with us as we cry or have anxiety. Somehow the dog just knows we need their presence, nudges, slurps, kisses and unconditional love. ESA dog training is also the foundation to creating a competent companion.
It is vital to know that you do have to have a documented diagnosis by a doctor in order to work with me. You must provide a letter from your primary care physician or psychiatrist that states you need an ESA dog and the diagnosis is part of your medical history.
ESA dogs, can mean the difference between function and not functioning at all. The most honorable way to establish your dog as an ESA dog is to ensure the proper training is done. This is because you are asking more of your dog than to be a traditional household pet; you are giving your dog an important role that implies it can be trusted.
The minimum level of dog training needed is up to the Canine Good Citizenship test. K9to5 also tests for behavior, and their temperament to ensure they are safe for everyone.
If you are still not sure we can sit down and talk through your goals with a personal one on one initial consult which is $150 an hour.
Please call me 719-238-8118, I am here to help.
"I have worked with Christine since my labradoodle was eight weeks old. He's now four and I continually receive compliments regarding his training. She is so knowledgeable about dogs; their behavior, their temperament, their learning styles. She is also very knowledgeable about humans, and their learning styles! I appreciate her professionalism, her patience, and her great sense of humor. Her community involvement is an important component of her overall philosophy."
