SDT offers customized training programs to elevate your dog’s natural desire to love you and be there for you. Our ESD programs focus on teaching advanced obedience, house manners, community obedience for dog-friendly outings, and engagement tasks to help support the handler in times of need. We also place pre-trained emotional support dogs. An emotional support animal is an animal companion that offers some type of benefit to an individual with some form of disability. The animal is intended to provide companionship and support that will help alleviate at least one aspect of the disability. ESA’s/ESD’s do not have public access rights like a service dog.
