Summary

Are you suffering from disabilities that make performing daily tasks a struggle?

Do you wish you felt more freedom and empowerment to do the things you love?

I know I was. Hi, my name’s Jenna. And for years, I let my disability stop me from living a life I really loved and that I knew I was capable of living. My disability left me in a state of feeling powerless, alone, and afraid. I knew there had to be a way to improve my life experience in a myriad of ways, and among other methods, getting and training a service dog has been one of the most significant sources of help upon my life in more ways than I can count. Ever since then, I’ve been passionate about sharing this knowledge with others so that they can be empowered in a similar way that I was.

Many people with disabilities can benefit from service dogs and not just those in wheelchairs. If you have diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, self-harm tendencies, or any number of other disabilities, a service dog may help you. However, in America, the standard cost of a fully trained service dog is 25 grand. This is more than many people can afford, especially when a large portion of their income is already going to paying medical bills. But, the good news is that you can fully train your own service dog. You might even find that, by training your own puppy, rather than having a stranger board and train it until it's an adult, you, and your puppy develop a closer bond that enables him to assist you better.

There is a lot of confusion on how to train service dogs, the legalities, which breeds are best, and more. In this audiobook, you will find answers to all of these questions and more. Not only are the United States of America’s laws regarding service dogs explained, but also the United Kingdom’s laws are explained as well, among many other useful things.

In this audiobook, you will find:

  • A detailed look at America’s and the UK’s service dog laws
  • The most common and best service dog breeds of all sizes
  • Helpful tasks and commands service dogs can learn
  • Frequently asked questions and their answers
  • The difference of service dogs, emotional support dogs, and therapy dogs
  • How to choose the right potential service puppy

The basics all service dogs need to know

A four-week training course including a multitude of commands and how to walk your puppy through the training process continuing training down the road and more!

So if you are ready to begin training your very own service dog and improve your own life, scroll up and click the “Buy Now” button and transform your life today!

Great example audible book about Dog

It's a good starting place and a must have for even those who have a professionally trained dog so you can keep up the training and tweak as needed.
Very concise and detailed; tells you what to do step by step. Author makes it sound very simple and easy to obtain results. Author wants you to make it fun for the dog. Like the use of positive reinforcements. Very good book.

very useful information and easy to understand

Dog Training: The Smart Way by Jenna Jimenez is an interesting and well thought-out book that covers training your dog. The book covers toilet training to basic commands such as "sit" and everything in between. What's more, as a dog owner, I like the fact that the system employs only positive reinforcement.
I used to train my dogs with a book that used the old fashioned way, in which you had different approaches according to your training objectives. Really worth recommending!

Excellent Book, Dog Approved!

Nice. The reality is, for most or all dog owners, except perhaps professional dog trainers, different: we try to devote as much time as possible to our puppy, but nobody can do what this book tells you to do.
This book has helped me so much! Definitely the best training book out there. Implementing these tools into practice at home has helped my dog more than I could ever imagine. Highly recommend.

Very happy with this training guide

Very happy with this training guide. I have taught my puppy so many different commands. It covers so much valuable information on training your pup. I love kaolin's message and she has such a love and passion behind her work. Would recommend to anyone with any age dog.

Good book to get started with your service dog!

This is a great resource for individuals who are training their own service dog and those that obtained a service dog from an agency. Service dogs are always learning and adjusting as you adjust to your disability.

This book provides you with day to day instructions on how to train your dog for service. It also helps you the handler learn the process to help your partner learn new tasks.

I found this book very helpful and I would recommend it to anyone interested in training their dog.

Very interested Read

It was actually a life saving for me. Although I am a dog lover i have never heard about this type of dog and it was really surprising for me when i find what a well trained service dog is capable to do. I have searched quite a fee times on internet but none of them are complete then my friend suggest me this book where i have got a clear understanding and direction about what these dogs are and how to acquire service from one. I desperately need one for my grandfather. Although i think this book not for the advanced users but it is very well organized for a beginner.

It really works!!!!

I had a dog that I had adopted and I wondered if she might work out well as a service dog. I found the book very easy to read, and the instructions quite easy to follow. The author was absolutely correct about service dogs needing to be trained By Using praise and rewards. I have been working with my canine partner since January of this year. Three times now she has alerted me to blood sugars that were too high or too low. Thank you so much for this amazing book.

I like that it is more instruction oriented

I have several dog training books acquired over many years. I use this one now for my new Dog and I find it more helpful than others and the author's methods are very effective.
Most training books are filled with stories that make it hard to find the instruction, and while this book does include its share of stories, it is more clear than most. I appreciate that.

Good information about Service Dog

Good information. I just need to follow it consistently. The book is easy to read and understand. The author seems knowledgeable about dog behaviors and training methods.
I got a dog, and she was my first rescue, so a brush up on do's and don't's were a must. I was recommended this by a vet and thought it was GREAT - especially since my husband never had a dog. Great handbook
