A Dog’s Choice Training Service assistance dog program was created due to the demand from people who did not fit the criteria of the service dog program for the charity that Liz co-founded with her husband Scott which was specifically for Veterans, First Responders and Correctional Officers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and service related injuries – Whiskeys Wish Inc (www.whiskeyswish.org.au)
During many training excursions with recipients of the charity’s program, we were often approached by many who had disabilities and who suffered from major depression and other mental health issues as well as parents of children who had autism who struggled with trying to train or meet criteria to train either their own dog or obtain a dog from an assistance dog training organisation that had long waiting periods.
We Do Not Use Harsh Methods or Physical Punishment – Positive Reinforcement, Force Free training (Member of the Pet Professional Guild of Australia (PPGA)) – also called Reward-Based Training.
This training style is based on the sound scientific principles of animal learning and operant conditioning. We focus on rewarding your dog for desired behaviour.
We will teach you how to understand and communicate with your dog. We are a fully registered and insured training organisation.
