  • Not every dog is suited for the service dog world, so be sure to find a trainer who takes the time to evaluate the potential candidate before starting a program. If the trainer says that it’s possible to turn a childhood pet with graying fur into a service dog, that’s a big red flag.
  • Training does not end after the initial training period is over. Quality trainers will provide follow-up visits to make sure that the dog’s scent chasing abilities remain reliable.
