DWJ Dog Training

What We Do

Dogs with Jobs works with a variety clients, such as Universities, zoos, State and Federal agencies. We can train canines to detect whatever you are looking for to learn more about a species, or to keep them from being introduced to an area.

We have over 26 years of experience in the detection canine field. We are one of the first conservation canine companies, started in 2008, with mussel detection dogs to prevent the spread of quagga and zebra mussels.

Wineries and vinyards can suffer from contamination of brettanomyces and TCA. A U.S. Federal Science study found that "any small improvement in the [detection] process could represent a savings of a billions dollars." We offer dog training to detect cork taint.

PTSD Service Dogs

We appreciate the challenge of coping with and seeking to overcome traumatic stresses and in many cases a PTSD certified service-dog is a very meaningful companion and treatment. We train service dogs to support individuals with PTSD.
