Capable K9s: Assistance Dog Training

Services offered

  • Core – Consumables

I offer a competitively priced assistance dog training program, for people with a disability or their carers to train their own assistance dog. I specialise in positive reinforcement based training.

I am experienced in training psychiatric assistance dogs, mobility assistance dogs, and medical alert and response assistance dogs. I do not pre-train and place assistance dogs: instead, I work with clients to select and train their own (suitable) assistance dogs using a highly customised and personalised approach.

The Capable K9s client experience is a fully supported, client centered, training focused model driven by my passion to help other people with a disability to achieve the same levels of independence and freedom her assistance dogs have given me.

All Capable K9s training lessons are one-on-one presented by via the Skype based training program I pioneered back in 2015. This program has been very successful and the fact you are able to access training from home via the internet has many benefits for people with a disability, who may find traditional face-to-face training inaccessible. When you are accepted as a Capable K9s client, I tailor a training program specifically to your circumstances and needs.
