We offer a variety of Service Dog Training Programs designed with you in mind and offer benefits unlike any other
At Highland Canine Training, LLC we provide reliable and affordable service dogs for autism assistance, mobility, seizures, hearing and more. We know that a service dog is a major investment of time and valuable resources, and we understand and respect the sacrifices that many families make in order to bring a service dog home. We do our best to provide the highest quality dogs and value to meet your needs. The following are just a few ways that we stand out above the rest.
You are not required to fundraise for this or any other organization to pay for your autism assistance dog or service dog. However, for families who are looking for ways to raise money to help pay for the cost of training a service dog, we are happy to provide a list of funding resources which other families have found helpful.
At the end of training, the dog belongs to you. We do not retain ownership rights. However, if for some reason something does not work out quite right, we will do our best to make it right, whether that means additional training, or going so far as replacing the dog.
We work hard to guarantee your service dog experience will be successful.
We offer personalized service; you are a part of the process from beginning to end. You are welcome and encouraged to visit our training facilities as often as you would like.
We provide a one-year health guarantee on dogs we select and train. The dog is delivered with at least a one-month supply of any medications or preventatives it will need. This gives you an opportunity to get your feet under you without worrying about getting to the veterinarian immediately.
We offer free phone and email consultations for as long as you own the dog.
We provide affordable and reliable Autism Service Dogs for children and adults affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. Each dog’s training is customized to meet the specific needs of every client.
Our Mobility Service Dogs are impeccably trained to perform a variety of tasks, from opening doors to retrieving dropped objects. Our Mobility Service Dogs are trained to work in any environment.
Having a reliable warning to the onset of seizures can be beneficial. As such, we provide seizure alert dogs that can be trained to respond to the onset of seizures to allow their handlers to prepare.
We also offer Signal Dog or Hearing Service Dogs for individuals who are deaf or have hearing impairments. These dogs are trained to alert to specific sounds and noises such as fire alarms.
If you have an existing pet and are looking for a service dog, we may be able to help. We are one of few organizations that will train your existing family pet to be a service dog as long as they have the aptitude for the work.
Your time is valuable. We understand that, so we keep our process simple and straightforward. You can read all about what to expect during the entire application procedure. Our staff is here to answer any questions you have along the way.
We work with schools, doctors, therapists, caregivers, and extended family members to help educate those in your community about your service dog. Our waiting list is shorter than most. It is currently 18-24 months from the time your application is accepted until the time we schedule the delivery of your autism assistance dog or service dog. Our application process is simple and we can help walk you through each step of it. We do not charge any application fees and applying for a service dog is free!
Our service dogs and training are highly affordable and we offer a payment schedule which is simple and allows you an opportunity to budget for a service dog without having to pay all of the costs up front. Because we do not have expensive puppy programs, we are able to offer clients well trained service dogs at much lower prices. The average cost of our service dogs is $15,900. The price of the autism assistance dog or service dog includes the initial set of customized equipment including leashes, a service vest or harness, tethering equipment, trailing equipment, and much more.
Our trainers and staff have experience training Search and Rescue Dogs, Police K9 and Military Working Dogs, as well as Service Dogs. There’s not much we haven’t seen or experienced. Many of our autism assistance dogs and service dogs are trained in trailing. We rely heavily on our search and rescue and police experience to ensure the dog is going to perform when it matters most. We are confident in our ability to train high-quality, dependable canine companions; in fact, we operate a school for dog trainers to teach others what we know about training service dogs!
