I personally finished formal training and certified my 3rd Great Dane.  Have utilized a Service Dog for 19 years, all Great Danes, my first was not certified.

Allow me to introduce you to Helius CSDM/CGC, TD Team #137.

AZ Dragondanes Helius CSDM/CGC All must be well socialized but also pay attention to their human at all times…even if there is a cute little girl sitting close 😉

Our primary specialty is mobility.  A mobility canine should be 40% of the individual’s height and one half their weight.

Example:  An individual of 6 feet tall and 200 pounds would require a canine no smaller than 30 inches tall and 100 pounds.

All breeds can make a good Service Animal.  It takes 12-24 months to train a Service Dog in standard requirements.

We specialize in providing Great Danes for those that need a larger canine to provide the task/tasks they need.  Such as assisted walking, wheelchair assist, pushing/pulling, major bracing, etc.

If you are looking for a large canine of another breed we will help you locate one.

ADA does not require a Service Animal to have a special license or be certified.  As long as a challenged individual has need for a Service Animal and the canine performs a task for that individual it is a Service Animal.

AZ Dragondanes evaluates, trains and certifies.  Training prices are based on task requirements.  May be higher when tasks are needed above and beyond standard requirements to certify a Service Dog.  Pricing on certification tests may very depending on whether client is located in Maricopa County or outside of Maricopa County.

Certifications and ID’s are provided to make it easier for challenged individuals with Service Animals in public.  Though not required, some establishments do not understand the laws applying to Service Animals and ID’s help ease that lack of education.

AZ Dragondanes only uses the best training materials.  We have these materials available for purchase.

Please feel free to contact us at  All AZ Dragondanes canines are on contract and all contracts are contoured around the challenged individual’s needs.
