PAWS Training Centers believes that legitimate service dog organizations’ primary mission is to help people with disabilities, while collectively promoting what is best for clients, dogs, and the service dog industry. Communication, interaction and strong relationships with like-minded service dog organizations results in a mutual benefit to everyone. Assistance Dogs International provides a comprehensive listing of service dog organizations that they recognize as having exemplary standards. If you are seeking a certification from an organization that is recognized by ADI, we recommend contacting your desired organization to determine their process and whether or not they certify privately-owned dogs. Each ADI recognized organization will have different requirements, procedures, and costs for privately owned dogs to pursue certification. Eligibility for certification with any organization is separate from your training with PAWS Training Centers, so you will need to contact your preferred organization directly. We have many clients that have passed our PAWS Training Centers’ Service Dog Training Program that have successfully pursued and graduated with an ADI-recognized certification!
