How long does it take to train a Service Dog?
ADI approximates 120 hours over 6
months. A well-trained Service Dog should be trained 1 to 2 hours per day over
6 months – in other words 180 to 360 hours. Depending on the needs of the handler and dedication to the training it can take up to 1-2 years. This will be the last step in your process of becoming a certified Service Dog Team.
