We found our trainer Valerie Fry owner of Canine Solutions Dallas through the Park Cities Animal Hospital here in Dallas. But an animal behaviorist might be another resource. It is not easy to locate a local service dog trainer. But we have found The Ping Project book extremely helpful for D.A.D.’s training, and Debbie Kay also has a DVD program called Super Sniffers (website referenced above) which we found helpful. I also reached out to Jullian Skalky of Creating New Tales (website referenced above) but unless you live in Florida she is only able to board and train your dog herself or communicate via Skype.
