A CANINE TEAM consists of an owner/handler who is at least 18 years old and his/her dog.
We accept all breeds and ages beginning at 5 months old.
All our dogs must be “stranger friendly“ and pass our basic temperament and control evaluation before being considered for the program. In order to become a certified DogAbility team, all teams must then attend 6 preparatory sessions usually held on Sundays at 10:00 am.
During the early weeks of preparation, teams will also be supervised during sessions with our participants and will become certified within 2 months after beginning our training course.
To remain a canine team in good standing, we ask that all teams attend a minimum of 2 sessions per month, either weekdays and/or weekends.
EVALUATION = $20
INSURANCE = $30 per year
PREPARATORY SESSIONS = $150
TEE SHIRT = $20
