ASA Service Dogs offers private lessons to assist handlers with training their personal dogs. We teach advanced obedience, task training customized for each service dog team, and public access skills. Basic obedience is a prerequisite for ASA's advanced assistance dog private lessons. 

We highly recommend John K9 for obedience and manner training!

No, there is no service dog registry or certificate in the USA.
