Training Update One of our new training plan for November!
November 9, 2017- As of today every week, we’ll be bringing you updates of our service dog training and all……
We started our training all over again-Thanks to our human Pam AKA the All American Dog Runner Girl. We have been using the training guide or manual which is guiding us through the training over the next or first 60 days…..written by the awesome trainer Lelah Sullivan, “the title of the book is “How to train your own service dog”
Train your Own Service Dog
The guide is in two books actually, the first book covers all the basics…..which are things that are going to lead into the big stuff every SERVICE TEAM- and I want to emphasize TEAM because both dog and handler need to know and follow along with. Service Dogs do need to be trained as such, but to my knowledge service dogs are not “licensed” as such, and other dogs are too easily passed off for service dogs. Even though there are states cracking down on fake service dogs, the ADA protects those with the unseen disabilities to the extent where it is difficult for people to ask in the right way if the dog is a service dog And the animal does not need a vest or id- and I am not speaking of the ones you buy online for whatever amount of $$$.
Service Dog Tasks and being called a Service Dog!
If the dog is well behaved and can do a task- A TASK to help that person they can be considered a service dog. What shall the task be for my dogs? Since Pam is a runner, and so are her dogs- her task is going to be unique to them all. She will have her dogs (one service dog at a time will be used of course), bring her to a safe place when she gets stressed and all…..This task may take time to train but will be worth it in the end.
Day 9 Today!
On Day 9 today of our training, we will be working with Pam on going to a spot- or going to our DOGA (most call it a Yoga mat!) mat!
