Service & Therapy Dogs > My GSD therapy dog was shot in his fenced yard by an officer

The news articles say that the officer knocked on the door. Wouldn't you all have heard that and answered the door if he had??

These stories are sad and I hope Vinny recovers with no lasting ill effects from the incident. I also hope that your grandson is able to over come what happened.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Reflective gear for your SDs

I don't use reflective gear on Bella mostly because our night walks don't take us outside our apartment complex. However when we go to Disney I use NiteIze clip on lights on her harness. They've worked great for us and I've actually been quite impressed at how much it's helped people see her at night.

Bella and I might be going to Australia next year but I'm having a hard time finding information on traveling there with a service dog. I know you all are great at tracking down information so I was wondering if you could help me get the information that I need to know.

Charlie, if you want to condense a bit H204K9 makes dog water bottles that I use with Bella all the time. The lid is a built in dog bowl and I find that it works really well.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Could a service dog fit into my life?
Bella

I know Princess Shalimar said that your doctor has to be the one to say you can have a service dog but I think that to be pretty far from the truth. No it is not a decision to be made on your own but medical doctors may not think about what is right for their patient or know the full story. My GP doctor knows nothing of the psychological conditions that I have, and when I went to him about problems with sciatica he simply told me to stop working out and doing whatever I was doing to aggravate it. Which isn't much of a solution for a 19 year old who is active. I workout regularly including lifting weights, swimming and running, and while I still have issues with my sciatica I'm happier than I would be not being active. I've actually gotten to run 2 half marathons and a 10k because I listen to my body instead of that doctor. The decision for me to get an ESA and then work with her until she became a SD was made with the help of my psychologist, but again it was a decision that was made after talking with her about what is best for me, but it wasn't a decision which she made for me.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Chaplin was just attacked by another dog need hugs support and recommendations

I would contact animal control as well to report what happened. If the dog has shown aggression towards other dogs in the past the family needs to handle that but probably won't unless they have a legal reason to do so. Bella was attacked by another dog and we are still working through her aggression issues a little more than a year later. I would follow any advice that your trainer is giving you about reassuring Chaplin that dogs aren't all bad. Other than that? I would just say be patient with him.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Choosing a dog to be a service dog

Bella

My service dog is a rescue that came from a shelter but I whole heartedly believe that we were meant for each other but realize that this isn't the case for many people. If you're hoping to rescue I would contact local rescue groups in your area, they have a much better idea of temperament with the dogs that they have instead of a shelter. Once you pick a trainer I would have them help you test the dogs that you are looking at and do an evaluation with that dog before choosing. I've worked with a rescue group in the past when I fostered and they were incredible in helping place the dog because we were able to see how he behaved in a home environment and with other dogs before he was adopted.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Gear question for the heat

I second what Bianca said. As for keeping hydrated Bella uses an H204K9 "K9 UNIT" water bottle which has a rubber cover that helps for insulation. It's already gotten fairly hot here (99 at 5pm today) and I've had great success with that bottle keeping water at the temp it was when you filled it/
