CLIENT/DOG TEAM SPONSORSHIP

$15,000

This sponsorship covers all levels (3) of training and costs associated with an NSSD Team.

 Level 1 Training – Basic

Covers the costs associated with the dog prior to being matched with their teammate.   This is the period of time the dog is living with a NSSD trainer and receiving training one-on-one every day. This allows us to prepare the dog and take some of the stress off the client.   Being our dogs are not kenneled, the trainer can socialize and acclimate the dog to many settings 24/7.    The goal of this level is to train the dog for the necessary cues/behaviors that are expected for the Team (dog/client) to pass the Public Access Test. This is a test to ensure that the team is ready to be in public without an NSSD trainer. This training period is typically anywhere from 3-4 months.

  • Up to 250+ hours of one-on-one training
  • All veterinary care, food, supplies and routine care for the dog during this portion of th training program.

Level 2 Training – Advanced

After the team has been paired and has passed the Access Test, the dog is reassigned to live in the client’s home. Now that the dog is living with the client, the team will be bonding and working together on a daily basis. At this point the team, with their NSSD trainer, will continue to work a minimum of six (6) hours a week for a period of three (3) months towards Certification. This time is spent focusing on proficiency of basic cues and behaviors and customizing the training to the individual needs of the client.

  • An individualized training plan for each Team (client-dog).
  • Over 500 hours of training (trainer-only training and client-dog training) including cost of trainer.
  • All veterinary care, food, supplies and routine care for the dog during the training program through certification.
  • Any equipment needed for training and use in public – leashes; collars; harnesses, crates, vests and patches.

Level 3 Training – Lifetime

Training is available to the team for the life time of the dog. This could cover the changing needs of the client, proficiency in a former cue or the need to just stay sharp. Our clients are always welcomed and encouraged to participate in any of our scheduled training classes.

  • Remedial training of any needs that may arise for the life time of dog.

In return for your generous donation, you the sponsor will receive:

  • A tax deduction letter.
  • Recognition on the NSSD website.
  • Recognition in the NSSD newsletter.
  • A standing invitation to attend a scheduled training session at the NSSD training facility.
