No knowledge to share, but good luck on your journey. My dog trains at a school which specializes in helping people train their own dogs to be service dogs. Apparently it is more economical. It would also seem to help create a better bond between dog and owner, and certainly create a more dog-knowledgeable owner, but I don't have any information about how it actually works out. For us, Jupiter is just a pet, but I felt the place had a good vibe for us.
