Minneapolis Animal Care & Control Dangerous Dog Program

What is this program?

How To Get Started

All animal control/declared dog cases must start with a $150 prepaid in-home training session (1.25 to 1.5 hours long).

Submit the below form and payment, and our office will reach out to you with scheduling options. The trainer will create a recommended training plan and begin the training in this first visit. Likely the most effective training will be accomplished through private training.

Follow Up

You have a minimum of 6 to 12 months (depending on your declaration) to complete the recommended training before moving onto the 6 or 12 month appeal. After the proper training, your trainer will come back for an in-home evaluation to assess the dog’s behavior in real situations. The evaluation costs $120, plus the cost of the written evaluation ($40). The trainer will provide a written evaluation to submit to your city's animal control agency with your appeal paperwork.

Refund Policy

Our standard refund policy (listed below) applies for all animal control/declared dog appointments. See below for more details:

No-shows and cancellations within 48 hours will be refunded a portion of their pre-payment. $50 will be retained to cover the trainer's time and the remaining amount prepaid will be refunded. Prior to 48 hours from your scheduled session, the entire prepayment is 100% refundable.
