To Ground or Not to Ground…..
Today we practiced some grounding and we’re debating if it really was a task that was helping me right off……The bottom line was no, it wasn’t- this helped a little here and there but for Scout to be my service dog we will be looking for a task that is more suited for our training and service need. So we will be researching other tasks and looking how we can train that task to help me.
Research on the many tasks of a psychiatric service dog does for their handler/ companion. When in public to have Scout intervene with me to detract me from certain events is an order I believe. So I will be researching this tonight.
If necessary I will use Grounding in the future but this is more of an at home task for us.
Remember every service dog team is individual and should be treated as such. From the actual person and the actual dog, to their very specific disabilities and/ or issues they need services for. So each should truly be treated as such!!
Until tomorrow have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day.
