Who can train a PSD?

There are many options for training a psychiatric service dog, as long as the dog is a suitable candidate. ADA recognizes self-trained service dogs which is the service we provide. What works best will depend on your specific abilities and needs.

If you have the time, patience, and knowledge, you can train the dog yourself. Many people want expert help from a training school or private trainer, to train their dog and to learn how to work with them effectively at the same time. You can also get a dog that is already properly trained by professional trainers and learn to work with them, but it can take time to find a dog that is properly trained to help with your specific needs.
