I have been training my Golden Doodle for the past 5 months to become a SERVICE DOG. I looked up the information on the Dept of Justice Web site under ADA Service Dog Assistants. The started research on what hey can help with. It is amazing what they can help with "After Training".
While officially she is a SDiT she has helped me emensely (sp). If you have help in caring And TRAINING I suggest looking into it. There is a lot of research in how well they work to improve overall health. Below are just some of the things they do: 1. Mobility 2. Seizure detection 3. Diabetes low sugar detection 4. PTSD grounding and blocking 5. Anxiety 6. Insomnia ------ these are just a few. ------
After Your SD is trained they have access everywhere ( in the USA ). If you are outside US check with the laws in your territory.
Congratulations Fjhatch! I hope your dog does really well. Even if I could afford a bigger dog for service training, I'm allergic to most. And on top of that my small 18 lb jackapoo becomes a dominating Hercules with other dogs, especially big ones. We've tried to train him but it's just not in his makeup. But he makes up for it with his affection. 🐕💞😊
Melissa I've been attempting to explain this idea to my mom. I need and want a dog so badly. I had a service dog four years ago to help me with my blood sugar. Unfortunately, now I have way more serious issues and isolation and depression are things G's I fight daily.
