Training a Comfort Dog? Choose I Train Academy

Hey there, dog lovers! Today, we’re diving into the world of training a comfort dog, also known as a support dog or Emotional Support Animal (ESA). Whether you’re looking to ultimately train your dog as a full-fledged Psychiatric Service Animal (PSA) or simply aiming for a well-behaved pet or ESA, our online service dog training program I Train Academy is a great solution.

But first, let’s discuss the importance of dog training in general.

Why Invest in Training a Comfort Dog?

Training a comfort dog isn’t just about having a well-behaved pet; it’s about creating a harmonious relationship between you and your furry friend. 

Here are some fantastic reasons why training a comfort dog can be a rewarding experience:

Good Behavior: A trained comfort dog is a well-mannered dog. They understand boundaries and are less likely to engage in disruptive behaviors.

Ease in Public: Taking your dog out in public is a breeze when they’re trained. They’re calm, composed, and non-reactive to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Stress Reduction: Training a comfort dog can significantly reduce stress for both the dog and the owner. A well-trained dog means fewer worries and more peaceful moments together.

Stronger Bond: Training fosters a deeper understanding and stronger bond between you and your dog. It’s an investment in a lifelong friendship.

Safety: A trained comfort dog is safer to have around family and friends. They listen to commands and are less likely to unintentionally harm someone.

I Train Academy: Training a Comfort Dog

We understand that not everyone wants or needs their dog to be a Psychiatric Service Animal. That’s perfectly okay! Training a comfort dog is a wonderful goal in itself. Our I Train Academy offers an extensive Obedience training program that’s ideal for this purpose.

Our Obedience training curriculum covers all the essentials for training a comfort dog. It’s structured, easy to follow, and, most importantly, effective. And the best part? Once you complete the course, you’ll receive an Obedience Certificate of Completion – a testament to your dedication and your dog’s new skills!

5-star review from Lori in Iowa about I Train Academy:

“My dog is doing very well with his training. Heel inside the home is very different outside. I have him socializing more. Today I took him to the river and had him go up and over a picnic table. He’s done having treats for doing his objective properly now I have bought new toys to enhance his experience. He is in the heel, sit, down position – any one of the above and I am able to tell him to down throw the toy and he will stay there until I tell break. This program is absolutely fantastic. My dog is an American pit bull named Diezel. I am very happy with his progression. Thanks Jas!”
