I have seen first hand the effect a Service Dog can have in the battle with physical and psychological disability. I also know there are many people who could benefit from the assistance of a Service Dog who simply cannot access the option. Program Schools have waitlists to get on the waitlist, leaving children, adults, seniors, first responders, military, and people from all walks of life void of a viable and effective treatment and life assistance option.
My goal is to become one of Alberta's finest Service Dog Coaches. My pursuit of education and certification has taken me to the Bergin College of Canine Studies. Dr. Bonnie Bergin invented the concept of the Service Dog to assist people with mobility limitations in 1975. Upon completion of the program, I will be offering a complete Service Dog Training program dedicated to excellence, success, and enhancing the lives of those with physical and psychological disabilities. Until then, I would be more than happy to assist you with Public Access Testing preparation and any information I can.
Confused about the process? Contact me to discuss the steps you need to look after. Service Dogs in Alberta are governed by the Service Dog Act . The requirements are among the most stringent in North America and are modelled on the Assistance Dogs International (ADI) standard.
