If you are interested in certifying your pet dog….

Hey, we love our pets too, but we know they are not Service Dogs. Some folks are interested in certifying their pets for public access. If that’s what you want to do, we CANNOT help you. NSD is an Assistance Dogs International accredited training school and as such we only breed, train and certify dogs from our program.
