Service Task Skill Training

The dog is trained to assist his disabled handler with personal mobility, hearing, vision, or personal tasks of independence. They include, but are not limited to the areas mentioned above in this skill training section. 

Service Dog Care and Exercise
The dog while working as a service animal is required to be healthy and free of communicable diseases. As part of the care your dog will need exercise to remain in good well muscled physical condition to serve you best. Training options include ball games that properly stimulate the mind and body as well as treadmill exercise programs. When the handler is unable to provide proper exercise program hiring outside assistance is required.

Handler/Dog Team Public Access and Social Etiquette

1 Dog must appear clean, healthy and well groomed
2 Dog must be trained to be quiet
3 Handler must demonstrate obedience command and control of dog
4 Dog is general trained in 5 environments or the locations of handler use
6 Handler role is to educate the public as needed: how to interact with a service dog
7 Dog is taught and required to remain neutral to other dogs in public while working
8 Handler must demonstrate the ability to recognize when the dog is stressed, may need a break or complete removal from an environment.

General Outlook

​This dog and handler training program is to create an ideal strong human-dog bond and controlled animal that serves his disabled handler with assistance.  Excelon Service Dog Training Program prepares the dog for the public challenges he/she will face as a working service/assistance animal with his/her handler. The dog is prepared to work with the handler in a variety of environments that extend beyond the home.
