Service Dog Training

Hello everyone! My name is Mackenzie and my pup's name is Indy. I got Indy at 8 weeks old in hopes of being able to train him as a service dog for myself for anxiety responses and a few other mental health concerns. His temperament has proven that he will be amazing at his tasks and service!

Getting a service dog that is already trained for tasks is a long and expensive process. That's why I decided to train my own. This though is still a very expensive path as the normal dog payments come in (vet/immunizations, food, toys etc) but also gear for him (service dog in training vests, special leashes, forms and paperwork etc.) I can teach him the basic obedience skills, but I don't know how to task train.

This is where I need your guys' help! Dog classes are expensive and I need some help to get him and I there. 

By going to these classes I can speed up the process for Indy and I to continue our bonding and helping me with my anxiety. Task training doesn't usually start in dogs until around the age of one, so that'll be this coming may. Current obedience classes can start now. I have already taught him sit, lay down, stay and recall with little distractions which is amazing for a 3 month old puppy!  I've worked countless hours prepping him to be the best obedient pup possible and it's been such a joy to work with him! Going to classes will further his and my own knowledge for training.

Without being task trained he's already helped me so much, I can't wait to see what else he will be learning! I will be incredibly thankful to any donations to help get us down this path! <3 If you want to watch our progress Indy has an Instagram where we share cute pictures and videos, and demonstrate his training skills! You can follow him @Indy_miniaussie and see how your donation has helped our progress!

Thanks again! Peace, love and bless!
