Service Dog Training

We assist owner trainers with all aspects of Service Dog training. We help guide owner trainers through the training process and educate on current Service Dog training standards, as well as all applicable laws and regulations. 

We also provide Public Access Testing*.  


Consults are required before training can occur.  

*Public Access Testing is done by International Assistance Dog standards. Testing is to provide feedback on the team in places where public accommodation is needed. Teams will not receive a certification or certificate from BBR after testing. Public Access certifications or certificates are not required by the ADA, FHA, HUD, FAA, or DOJ. 


Get ready to experience a new way of dog training with our Levels Training classes!

Levels Training Classes

How does it work?

Think of this like a yoga class or music lesson for training your pup: pay by the class and attend as many classes as you wish, at your pup's current level. You can also skip a week and attend the following week with no penalty for absence or loss of learning. Levels are designed to step up in complexity and you and your pup will stay in each level until testing up to the next one. This class structure is more flexible than a traditional 6-week course and also allows pups to proceed at their own pace.


Pay by the class or purchase one of our membership packages. We have 4-day, 8-day, and 12-day packages with progressive discounts for the larger packages.  All participants start at level 1 and progress through the levels via testing. You are welcome to test prior to starting the levels program. Each level focuses on a set of lessons and commands and all classes at your pup’s present level and work on the same information. This way if you miss a class, you won’t miss out on any key topics.

All new participants will receive an orientation packet through email. This will have all the necessary information about the levels program, required gear, homework forms, and helpful links. If you have a specific training question, please schedule a free 15-minute consult with our trainer.

Leveling Up

Progressing through the levels is an easy process. Complete each level at your own pace and test to the next level when you and your pup are ready.  You can also test to determine which level to start at. Test as many times as you would like. Once proficiency is shown, you can attend the next level. You can also revisit lower levels, at half cost, if you ever need a refresher.


We require all levels' participants to current on the following vaccinations:

Rabies, Distemper, and a 6-month Bordetella.

Since we are a daycare facility, we require all clients to receive a Bordetella booster every SIX months.
