PUBLIC BEHAVIOR STANDARDS
Luna Service Dogs Inc. strives to train above minimum Public Access standards and ethics, as described by Assistance Dogs International (ADI). All service dog teams must pass the O.D.O.R. Service Dogs Inc. Public Access Test prior to graduating from the Luna Service Dogs program. Additionally, teams should always adhere to IAADP's Minimum Training Standards for Public Access. Luna Service Dogs Inc. is not a member of ADI, however we strongly believe in training service dogs to the highest standards for both public access and reliability in their tasks.
In preparation for the PA test, all clients will be instructed using a customized curriculum for obedience and manners, with the goal of each team having the ability to complete all levels of the PPG Pet Dog Ambassador program and/or all levels of the AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC, CGCA and CGCU) program. The AKC Farm Dog Certified and UKC Socialized Pet Obedience Test (SPOT) are also encouraged.
