Differently Abled Dog Training

This is Checkers. She is missing one eye, and one leg. She excels in obedience and has started on her nose work journey. Dogs with disabilities or physical challenges are great additions to any family and they are just as capable of playing many of the same sports as abled dogs. Tripod doggies and blind dogs can play many sports such as rally, nose work, and obedience. Deaf dogs can play agility in addition to the other sports listed. We can help your dog with disabilities shine! To learn more call us at 8604139880.
