How long will it take for my dog to become an Assistance dog?

That will depend on a few things such as:

  • How much time you spend training your dog
  • The age of your dog
  • The temperament of your dog
  • Must complete a minimum of 150 hours of training
  • Must train for at least 35 hours in a high distraction public place where there are a lot of people, e.g. shopping centers, malls, etc.
  • Dogs in general will reach Assistance standard at different ages and that is okay
  • Overall it can take up to 16-24 months
