Service Dog Training/Assistance Dogs

At Specialty Dog Training, we believe in harnessing dogs desire to work, their amazing love and devotion, and their intelligence. We love working with all breeds, ages, size’s and in all capacities. Our dog training company teaches pet dogs fundamental obedience commands, we work through basic behavioral issues, improve and alter severe behavioral issues, train Therapy Dogs and one of our favorites, we work with and train service dogs (assistance dogs). Training and certifying properly trained service dogs takes a ton of love, time, passion, consistency, ability and skill. Our team at Specialty Dog Training offers those things and more. Our founder and President, Graham Bloem, has been training working dogs for 10 of the last 14 years he has been a professional dog trainer. He and our dedicated team at Specialty Dog Training provide elite training programs for service dogs and their owners.

Having any disability can be very difficult to say the least but working through the challenges of your disability alone can make it ever harder. By introducing a working service dog into your life, you can increase your confidence, do things you weren’t able to do, reduce stress whether it be mental or physical stress on your body, increase freedoms in life that you want and deserve and truly alter your life for the better. Assistance dogs have been helping people for along time and these dogs have proven to use how amazing they are and what they can truly do to better the lives of people in need.

At Specialty Dog Training, we train service dogs in the following areas: Psychiatric service dogs, mobility assistance dogs, seizure response service dogs, diabetic alert service dogs, peanut detection service dogs, and assistance dogs for children on the autism spectrum. (Any inquiries outside of these parameters may be referred to other companies in the area that specialize in training service dogs for your needs).

Our company would love to have the opportunity to help you become a part of a team with the right service dog. Having a working service dog is truly about being a team and working together. Many of our graduates say that is one of the best parts about having a service animal.
