Your question was cut off. You should post this on the Service & Therapy forum on this site.

Wow, I don't know what your questions were, but as a professional dog person who trains dogs of every breed, I have never heard of anyone who could reliably train any dog, much less to the level required to be a service dog, in less than 3 months.
Most organizations spend up to two years training dogs for service work, and then spend additional time working with the person who will be using that dog.
With the huge number of fake and unscrupulous groups "selling" service dog now, I would certainly be doing a lot of background checking on this group.
In just a quick search of their website I saw red flags popping up over and over.
I would also suggest posting this in the service dog forum. People there might be a good place to get some references on this group or have more information for you.
