Luna Service Dogs Inc. offers private, in-person or online distance learning lessons. Using Zoom, a free video conference program, we coach owners how to train their own service dogs, and owners who wish to learn scent detection dog sports for fun.

For all service dog teams, once all task and obedience training is completed, each team will follow the strict video submission guidelines for scent task testing and public access testing, if not in person or in a live video session with the trainer. Upon completion of training and successful testing, each service dog team receives a certificate of completion.

GLUTEN & ALLERGEN TRAINING

As a person with Celiac, Christina intimately knows the risks of cross-contamination and the long-lasting, negative effects of accidental ingestion of gluten. With her years of experience in scent detection sports, a completed internship with a professional gluten/allergen detection service dog trainer, and her dedication to ongoing professional development and continuing education, she understands that proper handling of odor is essential to the success of the gluten/allergen detection service dog. In training gluten/allergen detection, it is of utmost importance to never use a powdered form of any allergen.
