Certification that exceeds all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) can be accomplished through PAWS Training Centers by successfully completing the 4-phased Service Dog Training Program and the final Public Access Test. PAWS Training Centers requires that you maintain a 6-month relationship with us prior to the final test and further requires that your dog is at least 1-year old and fully matured. Upon certification, PAWS Training Centers will provide you with a vest and informational ID Cards. To maintain your certification with PAWS Training Centers, you will be required to re-test annually. We further recommend that you obtain General Liability insurance to ensure proper coverage for you and your dog while in public places.
