PTS Service Dog Information
*

Your dog will require an evaluation as to its suitability to be trained as a service dog. We also require a Veterinarian Release. If your dog is not appropriate for the program are you willing to move ahead with a different dog?
*
Upon acceptance into the PTS Service Dog training program, you will be required to attend weekly, 2 hour sessions for a total of 20 weeks. You will be expected to log an additional 100 hours of independent training using the methods and tools learned in class in order to complete the course. Part of the training requires classes to be held in places like Home Depot, Petco or restaurants in order to train the dog how to behave in public situations. Are you willing to make this commitment?

Housing Information
If you live in a rental, you will need permission from your landlord to have a service dog in training. Please provide a letter from your landlord. Embrace A Vet requires a signed document which indicates a veteran’s support person is knowledgeable about the application for service dog training, supports the process and the on-going follow-up. In addition, two individuals have to agree to provide support to the veteran/canine team, have 24/7 access and agree to provide an immediate and temporary home for the dog should an emergency arise.
