Dog-Partner Training Programs

AMBASSADOR ASSISTANCE K9S INTERNATIONAL

 

We believe that high-quality dog-to-human partnerships are founded upon human knowledge & understanding of dog behavior and science-based dog learning theory, leading to the removal of dog-to-human communication barriers; since, in our professional opinion, most training issues are the result of dog-to-human communication breakdown due to the human lack of training in dog behavior & dog learning theory.

 

For all of our dog-partner training programs, we first consult with you on your dog-partner training needs in order to point you to the most appropriate of our specialized training programs.

 

In-person and/or by video submission, we observe & evaluate the dog's behavior, and the dog-to-human interactions as well as the quality of the dog-to-human relationship. In this way, we identify the underlying causes of dog-to-human communication breakdown for addressing through proper training. 

 

All of our dog-partner training programs teach dog owners/handlers the material that they are required to know in order to earn a "Pass Grade" of 90 or above on the written & hands-on interactive "Basic-Handler Certification Test" that challenges one's knowledge of responsible dog ownership (e.g., humane handling & training, understanding dog behavior, applied dog learning theory,  veterinarian care, regular internal/external parasite control, dog laws & licensure).

 

SERVICE DOGS, ASSISTANCE DOGS, THERAPY DOGS, EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOGS, and COMPANION-FAMILY DOGS. We work with disabled individuals, licensed therapy, counseling, & medical professionals, and families, offering dog-partner professional training & certification programs that forge a durable human-to-dog bond upon which all effective training outcomes rely.

 

We believe that YOU humans must be well-trained alongside your dog-partners, and to accomplish this, we guide you through an individually-designed, rigorous, step-by-step dog-partner training program LASTING from 6-months to 2-years (depending on the type of dog-partner training program, dog age and abilities, and handler abilities).

Our Dog-Partner Training Programs ...

I.  SERVICE DOGS--> for disabled individuals (1. Mobility & Balance.  2. Autism.  3. PTSD.  4. Psychiatric. 5. Medical Alert & Medical Responder. 6. Combinations of these Service Dog types).

 

II.  ASSISTANCE DOGS--> for disabled individuals with hearing or vision impairment (1. Hearing Dogs for hearing-impaired.  2. Guide Dogs for vision-impaired). 

III.  THERAPY DOGS (for individuals and licensed therapy, counseling, & medical professionals).

IV. EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOGS (for mental health outpatients).

 

V.  COMPANION-FAMILY DOGS (for families & individuals).


 

Each of our dog-partner training programs exemplifies excellence in superior training & handling standards for both dog and human. Concentrated in science-based dog learning theory, we teach the humans to understand dog behavior as well as how to decode and "speak" dog body language.

 

We utilize positive reinforcement & force-free, pain-free, humane and ethical training methods that foster healthy & effective relationship-building with your dog for highly successful training outcomes, and for happier & healthier dogs and owners/handlers.

 

Our weekly (in-person in your home and/or via internet and/or via email) training modules emphasize enhancement of the human-to-dog bond by fostering mutual trust & respect relationship-building with your dog for improved communication.

More About

We at Ambassador Assistance K9s International (AAKI) bring humane & highly effective, force-free, pain-free,  positive reinforcement professional dog-partner training to your home (in-person or via the internet or email) because the home-environment is where relationship-building with your dog begins.

We have trained a variety of Dog-Partnerships for individuals, families, and medical, counseling and therapy professionals for more than 30 years, and in 2015, we decided to form Ambassador Assistance K9s International, LLC (formerly known as Ambassador Assistance Animals International), branding our training programs as "Working dogs changing lives" and "the human-to-animal-bond."

We are NOT non-profit because we believe that your first responsibility is to invest in relationship-building with your dog, and because we believe that non-profit status could potentially significantly limit our ability to choose to assist you in developing civil rights self-advocacy strategies relative to your access rights when accompanied by a Service Dog, Assistance Dog, or an Emotional Support Dog.

 

ONLY officially accepted AAKI Dog-Partner Training Program clients may be considered by AAKI at AAKI's sole option and sole discretion for assistance in developing civil rights self-advocacy strategies relative to your access rights when accompanied by your Service Dog, Assistance Dog, or Emotional Support Dog.

Public accommodations examples include but are not limited to: hotels & motels, grocery stores, shopping malls, restaurants, libraries. Public transportation examples include but are not limited to: taxis, buses, trains (see airlines below).  Emotional Support Dogs & Therapy Dogs (also Companion-Family Dogs) are NOT Service or Assistance Dogs, and therefore, they are NOT covered under YOUR access rights to public accommodations & public transportation!

The Air Carrier Act (pertaining to airline access rights) is the U.S. Federal Law granting access rights to individuals accompanied by Service Dogs, Assistance Dogs, AND Emotional Support Dogs.

 

U.S. Federal & State-level housing access rights are addressed in the Fair Housing Act and also by each state's specific Fair Housing laws, respectively. Service Dogs, Assistance Dogs, AND Emotional Support Dogs are granted access rights subject to Fair Housing laws.
