TEAMWORK® Training Materials

Produced by TOP DOG Publishing Company

TEAMWORK is a unique set of training materials specially designed for people with physical disabilities.  They are very easy to follow and provide wonderful insight into basic canine behavior. Praise and food rewards are an integral part of all our training methods. No matter what breed of dog you may own or what physical disability you may have, you can learn how to understand and train your own service dog.

It is our sincere hope that more and more people with disabilities will realize they can share in the joy and companionship of owning a dog … and with a little work and dedication, learn how to transform their dog into a better behaved friend and companion. Our goal is to help build owner-dog-teams who understand one another and bond strongly together.
