|"either way, the dog shouldn't have been put in the position of being her babysitter."
Alcoholism is considered an illness like MI is now, why should an SD for that be any less acceptable than an owner trained PSD?
A dog that will bring back an escaped autistic kid is sort of acting like a babysitter, and getting SDs for that is becoming popular fast in my state now. The average doctor has no clue what they're doing regarding those 'prescriptions' at this point. It will be interesting to see where this goes...because I agree, it's unfair to some dogs in certain circumstances where they should not be. Unsafe for the handler, unsafe for the dog, but hey it looks great on paper and on the surface it seems like a solution.
I'm glad that Lilly is going to be ok. It's amazing to think about the thought process that dog went through in order to do what she did and still survive.
