Team Training Kit Sponsor

Team training is the final step in placing a dog with a client and forming a new service dog team. Clients travel from around the state and nearby areas to work full-time with PAALS trainers and the assistance dog specifically trained to match their specific needs. At the end of the Team Training, each client/assistance dog team must pass written and practical tests to show that they are capable of safely caring for, living and working with their PAALS dog.

Each graduating team is provided a Team Training Kit which contains many of the items the client will need to use and care for their service dog. Some of the items included in the kit are:

  • Toothbrush
  • Gentle Leader
  • Food Bowls
  • Portable Water Bowl
  • Brush
  • Toothpaste
  • Working Cape
  • Dog Mat
  • Cotton Balls
  • Training Clicker
  • Leashes
  • Balls
  • Car Safety Harness
  • Collar
  • and more

Team Training Kit sponsors will receive an invitation to the Graduating Team luncheon held before graduation as well as reserved seating at the graduation event.
