Our Services:

We offer a variety of dog training services to meet nearly every need using professional, safe, humane and natural methods to help clients have healthier relationships with their dogs. Clients are treated with respect and provided the best training and handling approaches for their dog’s age, gender, personality, temperament and motivation.

Important Information:

We currently accept cash, most major credit cards with proper ID, and checks. Please make checks payable to Golden State Service Dogs. Payment is due at your first appointment. Please note that returned checks will result in a fee of $30.00 from GSSD on top of any fees charged by your financial institution.

Payment Plans or Discount Requests:
We believe that training your dog shouldn’t be a burden, but a wonderful experience that you both can enjoy without pinching pennies or dog biscuits! Golden State Service Dogs offers quality services with upfront affordable pricing so clients can responsibly plan for training costs. We work with many clients and families that are on fixed incomes, and many outstanding teachers, first responders and military professional (THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE), so we never markup our services and always offer low-cost, value prices (so you never have to wait for a sale or compromise services).

Cancellation Policy:
For private lessons, I understand that Golden State Service Dogs has a 24-hour cancellation policy. If I need to cancel a scheduled appointment for any reason, I know to contact Golden State Service Dogs at least 24 hours in advance to re-schedule. I agree that violation of this policy may result in being charged the full cost of the scheduled session. For group classes, I understand that GSSD has limited enrollment in their group classes and I am responsible for attending the class sessions I have signed up for. GSSD does not offer any class makeups, enrollment changes, or refunds within 48 hours before a new class start date.

Household Discounts:
If you have multiple dogs in your house that need training, no problem! There’s no need to buy separate private training packages for each dog as our private training packages make it easy for household members to work together on their common training goals. We love seeing households grow together, so please contact us for more information on this discount!

Loyalty Rewards Program:
We love when clients share their experiences with others. Each time you refer three people in one year who purchase any private training package, you will receive a free Bronze Package. So please share your dog’s progress on social media and your valuable experience and impressions with your friends and family!
