Classes & Testing
Buddy’s Pals test all dogs and handlers as a team. Dogs must first pass a Temperament Assessment and after they pass, the dog will need to complete a prep class in order to become certified.
Dog training and test preparation classes for Buddy's PALS are held through Annabelle's Canine Station and Pawsitive. Check their websites for upcoming classes. Classes will build on basic skills, handling distractions, and teach what’s expected in an academic environment.
Prior to enrolling in a prep class for Buddy's PALS,
- Be at least one year of age
- Have a good temperament and like to be around dogs and people
Be non-reactive around dogs and people
Have a good understanding of basic commands such as sit, down, come, stay, and loose-leash walking
