Press-release-photo-ServiceOn January 21, 2016 the DOGS organization recognized Quansa Kennels, Inc. as its first approved provider of participatory service-dog training in the Midwest.

“Quansa has a long and distinguished history of providing service dogs and service-dog training programs that directly involve the dog’s eventual owner in the training regimen,” said Pat Muller, owner and principal trainer of Quansa Kennels, Inc.

“In many instances the trauma our recipients have experienced is the result of an unexpected or even catastrophic loss of trust. Quansa helps build and restore trusting relationships through a time-tested program of inclusionary training wherein the recipients fully participate in the process of their dogs’ specialized service training.

The Quansa concept of developing a service dog relies heavily on the development of the relationship between the dog and the person the dog will serve. Quansa’s unique, participatory methods permit the recipients and their dogs to learn and grow together, thus creating a remarkably deep and robust bond.

We are very happy to be recognized by the DOGS organization as their first approved training provider and we look forward to introducing our special brand of participatory service training to those who wish to begin the journey.”
