Service Dog Training 

Service dogs are an incredible asset to their disabled handler’s day to day lives. They allow these individuals to have the freedom and confidence to tackle every day things that regular people would view as mundane and minuscule. A service dog is a companion, a lifeline, and a valuable piece of medical equipment. 

Here at A Canine’s Way, we pride ourselves in holding every service dog in our program to the highest standards. We adhere to all state, local, and federal laws and ordinances regarding service dogs, and help educate our teams in all the ins and outs of service dog laws and etiquette.

Instead of utilizing group sessions to teach core skills, our group classes are specifically designed for dogs that have already mastered their core skills. We focus on implementing core and advanced obedience around a variety of distractions: people, dogs, bikes, deer, etc. Group classes are especially beneficial for dogs with reactivity or confidence issues, but even our more advanced clients can still benefit from group classes. We also work on off leash reliability, directional work, distance work, and more! 

Group classes typically these take place at public parks around San Antonio once a week, and are on a come as you please basis. 


Group classes are included in our board and train and private lesson packages, and can be added to our virtual training packages if you’re local to San Antonio as well!
