A points of concern - Is the human partner of the Psychiatric Service Dog able to provide care needed for the dog? I ask as a friend with bipolar dz, who was doing outstanding, stopped taking his meds then left his 12-year-old cat outside as, "Oh, he'll come back!" That was just a week before he got into a terrible accident... Kitty was never found.
Please - this is not an issue *just* for PTSD or others with brain injury. It is a very important issue for every person with any type of dependent animal!
Can't remember where my teammate read it... "They" are attempting to include some basic service dog requirements of all psych dogs - pick up dropped items, and 3-4 more. Can't remember who the 'they' part were either... Would give more standing for Psych Dogs!
