LIVE LIFE WITH YOUR DOG
Take your dog everywhere you go as a Psychiatric Service Dog
No matter how well trained your dog is, only official service dogs can go with you anywhere.
When you train your dog to be a PSD, they’ll be more capable of supporting your needs with specialized tasks, will receive federal protection and specialized training, and get access to all public spaces and public transportation.Certify Your Dog Today!
"I thought PSD certifications were expensive and time consuming, and saw that programs cost up to $30,000 and could take years!
With ICTI, I trained my PSD at home and earned an Official Psychiatric Service Dog Certification in less than 30 days — it’s the best decision I’ve made since getting my furry best friend in the first place!”Certify Your Dog Today!
This applies to ALL Dog Breeds!
There’s nothing better than bringing your best friend everywhere.
Dogs are the best companions for helping us feel safe, protected, and cared for. With a PSD certification, the fun with your furry friend doesn’t need to stop at home! Your PSD can come with you into places most dogs can’t, such as restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, shopping malls, and more. They also cannot be restricted from rentals with “no pets policies!"
The International Canine Training Institute's Psychiatric Service Dog Training Course is a self-paced and affordable way for you to transform your furry best friend into a federally-compliant Psychiatric Service Dog.

Life Changing Stories
"My PSD Helps Me Complete Daily Tasks"
I initially got Cooper, a black labrador, to help me manage my anxiety after Covid. Due to my auto-immune disorder, I was scared to go into public spaces or into crowds where I had a higher risk of getting sick. Even when I’d wear a mask, normal tasks like going grocery shopping, on public transportation, or out to dinner caused me paralyzing anxiety.
While Cooper helped me feel calm at home, he was not legally allowed to enter some places as a pet. Now that he’s a PSD, Cooper can not only provide emotional support for me in crowds, but is trained to walk a few feet ahead of me, which helps clear a safe distance for me to walk.
I cannot express how much getting Cooper a PSD certification has improved my life!
"Our Family’s PSD Saved Our Son’s Life"
Due to a rare birth defect, our son Zachary is prone to getting seizures out of nowhere. While my husband and I do our best to keep a constant eye on him, our work schedules sometimes mean there are small stretches of times where we cannot be with him.
A few months ago, we both happened to be on calls when our PSD dog, a German Shepard named Roxie, started barking loudly, as she’s been trained to do when Zach has a seizure.
If not for Roxie’s PSD training — we might not have our son with us today.
