Service & Therapy Dogs > Attending College with a SD

Love is eternal- hope.

In my previous study there were SD denied by the consultant of disability department. It was announced by official letter, that they denied my SD in the reason, that acc to their opinion i am not in a danger of my life, and they can provide me an equally health care service during the class session, and also that they have not created a standards of accommodation for SD in the campus.

So i need to find accommodation of my own. But it was much more better for me and SD, than share apartment with someone, who is not pleased to understand.

They also wrote me, that the only exception should be given by applicants with vision impairment.

On the other way, at the different part of the same university, at the another office, they don´t need to provide any documentation, and they will provide me fully service also with my SD. So its all about the people.

The only requirement was, that I need to have my SD always clearly marked, as an SD.

I think that all this case is a completly rubbish. The standards for breeding GS and all the breeding criteria should be given by the country of origin.

That menas that there are not exist any eastern and western types. If the country of origin is just a one. (and its a Germany, - if we are still talking about GS - mabye eastern and western Germany, but its still a Germany and itś shurely have nothing to do with the rest of EU . If im misinterpreting som informations please feel free to correct me. )

Standard said, that GS is a versatile usable dog, whose breeding license is overmore depending on the working test examinations. That means that there cannot be any show and working lines, because all the breeding dogs still has the same minimum standards for working.

Standard is just a one, and everybody who is breading a non-standard individuals, trying to mark them like an work, shows, eastern and western types is unserious breeder whose only one purpose is to enrich himself at the cost of someone else. Which is btw a federal crime.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Too much info patches

EX in the most of EU countries, you need to have your dog visibly marked as an service animal, if you would like to take him at the public places. like, shops, traffic etc. Its usually done by harness patches, but it also could be done by collar. And than its up to you, if you will use a medical sign, training organisation logo, or variably patches.

Some times i have kind of aversion. There are many people asking me a silly questions, especially if i am in hurry or not just in good mood.

Ok and I hate people peting, whistling, growling, touching, feeding, barking or bothering my dog in any case. Especially if they let their dogs or children furiously throw on my dog.

Sometimes I have an impression that I need an extra label for every reason.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Teaching a scent alert.

The dog response is based on combination of factors. Every seizure is different. And he may respond at any one of those. (smell, abnormal sweating, routes in the extremities, change of voice frequency etc.) You need to socialize him well at first, to feel self-confident and willing to work for you in every occasion. Then you need to fix his concentration about yourself. Teach him ignore most of the external influences. To respond well is based on close bound between dog and handler. It seems to be responding of his own, but its the time for him to teach about how to recognize and prevent a potential dangerous situation. Its quite funny, because you try to teach him something, that he can do it only by his own. You can´t help him if you don´t know about what he is actually responding for. The only think you can do it is make to believe in him and ask him every time consistently for clear signals.

Its really great, if you can take your dog for working time. There are always some worries at the start, but its just in time as you build up some everyday routines.

In my previous job, Bibs have been lying underneath the table, or in her cart most of the time. Mostly with no signs of life. She recognized all the situations shortly, so she was sleeping most of the time, partly in the case that she was bored.

&And there are also fine made "norweger" style harnesses by Hurtta comp.Harness could be ordered with side rings too. I used to had one for skijoring a year before. Light, durable and comfortable for dog. Unfortunately without side bags. I solve this problem ordering one from Julius and finished up some changes by myself.

Service & Therapy Dogs > When to decide a pup isn't suitable?
Blondie

Love is eternal- hope.
 
 
Barked: Sun Aug 26, '12 4:52pm PST 
Well I dont read all about the conversation, just your first questiom. so Please appologize me, if Iam out in some way.
Actually i had the same problem with puppy of mine. I decide to choose a german shep puppy, so everybody knows, that there are some specifications according to breed smile need to be count with, when you are taking a puppy.

And there is the another point, that not only the breeds but also some individuals have a strong specifications. It doesnt mean that the dog is not a right animal for the work or has a bad character. Its only mean that there are some kind of specific situation you nead to deal with. And the point "if" you can and if you are willing to. Of course not everything is about the trainers work and not everything is easy. You need to look at the progress of your animal in the borders of his own. Not to compare him with another one. Mabye a no progress in prewious puppy should be a milovy jump for dog of yours .Dont be benevolent.But try to be understanding.

So back to your question. In off. training programs in my country there are usually the time period of 24 months to be decided, if the youngster is suitable to do a progress in the training acc. to character requirements.

The dog of mine was also wery bad soccialised with really lots of complexes. Ex. she was so affraid off the outside world to be relieving herself at home almost to 8 months!!! But there is the difference between the training/early socialisation and the character deficiencies.

The good socialised puppy is just a benefit for you.It doesnt mean nothing for him. The middle way how to start in training. What is the most important for your dog is to feel fine and confident in the working enviroment. Some dogs are "fine" in the town, but they are not a really "townish" dogs. Its just a case of something need to be patience for the masters pleasure. Most of them are anxious at external places to be away long from home and well known tracks. They should be an excelent working dogs, but for the reason of their continued frustrating they cannot be graduated as an assistance dogs.
