Whether you need a Service Dog to perform tasks, need a dog for Emotional Support, or want to begin therapy work with your dog, we are here to help. PANT believes that ALL dog owners have a responsibility to teach their dogs good public behavior and maintain control of their dog(s) in public settings.
Prior to making any decisions, you must take into consideration that not all dogs are cut out for specialty work, as you have to take into consideration: temperament, age of dog, your consistency in working with the dog, along with expectations and tasks you want your dog to perform. Consults are required so we can evaluate your dog and give you feedback.
Personal pet dogs are only allowed to take their pet to pet-friendly environments.
Service Dogs are trained to help disabled owners with specific tasks such as picking up/retrieving items, providing stability, creating a boundary around the owner in public settings, notifying an owner if someone is walking behind them, etc. Your service dog must be able to perform at least 3 owner assistance tasks.
