To apply to one of our dog training programs, you must first submit proof of your dog’s shots and neuter/spay. Once we receive your paperwork (copies please, no originals), we will send you the information of our next available orientation night. Orientation usually takes place the evening before the start of each training cycle. During your first training session, you will be given the application paperwork for your pet, and a trainer will go over all the information with you. To become a service dog, your pet must be microchipped, although we do recommend that all dogs be chipped. Orientation is held at Silver Sands Mobile Resort, located at: 9252 E. Broadway in Mesa (next door to Mesa Bowl in the Parks and Recreation Room) Classes are held at the Apache Greyhound Park, located at: 220 W. Delaware St. in Apache Junction. For more information regarding classes, you may call one of the following phone numbers: 480-288-5174 / 480-262-5479 / 480-550-1946


In 2014, the Deano Brandt Scholarship was created, and in 2015 we were proud to award our first official recipient. This scholarship is for students who are either a junior or senior in high school who want to enter an animal husbandry profession. Applications are due by November of each calendar year, with interviews following through the month of January.
