Service Dog Tasks
So today let’s talk about Service dog tasks- in training our own service dogs. It is to my understanding that our dogs need only to know one particular task to assist their handler. Of course a lot of tasks are paired with other tasks to complete the servicing of that disability of the handler. And your dog knowing more than one task is a definite plus. BUT at this point in our training in our first month of training one task per dog is what we will have under our belts before we head out into public places as a team in training!
What tasks to train for what symptoms?
Some tasks that are listed are for these symptoms: Anxiety, aggressive driving, fear, insomnia, memory loss, among others. You can find a list of symptoms and tasks at
Oh so many decisions, I am certain as we continue to follow along with Lelah Sullivan’s book- shown here we will be able to train and become a great team and help our handler, Pam lead the life she always wanted to lead with us by her side!
