Doesn't sense supper time?

Ludwig seems to know when I'm even just thinking about giving him a treat.

I thought this was a good article from a different view point. I never thought about how genuine service dogs are affected by fake service dogs .

That brought a tear to my eye.
A great article and perspective, thanks for sharing

This is my Woody with DH.

We once had a brittany who was nippy with kids who roughhoused with him and we had 3 little kids who had tons of little friends over all the time. One little friend tackled him and he nipped the kid's face so we found a new kid free home with a single older lady who lived alone and liked to hike a lot. He got to run through the woods off leash and was in heaven. But, anyway, the lady took him to visit with her elderly mom who had a seizure disorder and they came to realize he could sense when her seizures were coming on.

Sadly that's not the first time I heard of people having to retire a dog due to bad situations like that. Makes me so mad and sad all at the same time

Great article. It pinpoints how real service dogs are factored into the equation. Not only do I feel bad for Onyx in the fact that task work has been put in reverse..., but the poor person. The bond that a person creates with a dog who serves as a life line is immense. People who willingly and knowingly put others at risk due to their selfish behavior when they dress their pets in vests should be fined heavily.

Not to mention the time and effort. One person I know had to retire their dog early due to issues. So just a few years after she got the dog, she had to go back to the school for 2 weeks to retrain with a new one. Now they were able to and happy to keep the retired dog, but still. It's such an effort and if the dog needs to be rehomed (not all can keep prior working dogs) just really makes it even worse.

I think having a few friends with service dogs has really opened my eye to a lot. Glad that my family has been able to work with local training as well.

I know maybe I shouldn't, but I am to the point where I openly say things to people when they have a dog somewhere they shouldn't...or I openly say things to people who are purposely acting a certain manner around me/a dog I might be training. I once witnessed a woman bend down, repeatedly slapping her thighs, while making kissing noises at one of the dogs I was working with (we were working in the pillow/bedding aisle of a HomeGoods- which is actually somewhat tricky b/c of the smells associated with feather-stuffed pillows). I looked at her and said "What are you doing? Seriously-what are you doing?..."
I find most people are wonderful and I have had some amazing conversations with people who I never would have talked with had I not been holding a leash...dogs allow for connection and for people to open up. So, I agree...my eyes have been opened from having the chance to work in this type of situation.
