Thanks for the info,
I honestly can't pinpoint whether it is anxiety or she's actually getting motion sickness. I've heard that Ginger helps dogs with motion sickness so I will look into getting some. As for the peanut better I have never heard about dogs really having problems with it, I have been giving her quite a bit of peanut butter thou. I give her some in her Kong at least twice a day when I leave for work ( we are in the middle of crate training. ) going to stop giving her peanut butter and see if that helps smile

So I decided to retire Zoey since there's a couple things that keep her from working for me when I'm out in public (fears of some floors, refrigerators and people stepping on her. I got a border collie at the beginning of January ( I did do lot of research on this breed before picking a puppy) and have been training her the basics and hopefully she will grow up to be my service dog.

Now my question, she gets carsick, I never had this problem with Zoey so it's new to me. What happens is as soon as the car starts she starts drooling, heavily, within five minutes she throws up then waits two seconds then try's to eat it. It's really hard driving and trying to stop her eating that. so I want to know what you guys think. Someone on my Instagram page told me to try motion sickness medicine for her but I don't want her to be depended on this...but do you guys think this will help in the short-term how should I go about getting her used to car rides yesterday I took her on a very very short ride around the neighborhood she was drooling constantly but it wasn't long enough for her to throw up. should I just keep doing this until she stops drooling? one idea I had but I didn't yet try is to give her a kong with some peanut butter on it for her to lick she loves Her kong I use it every time I put her in the crate but do you think this will make her throw up even more?

Feeding in a grocery store, no its wrong, but keep in mind "feeding" and "treating" are to different things. Treating is ok treats are small and would take less then 2 seconds for a dog or pup to eat, any big peaces are more like feeding and that should be done at home. plus i would never feed your treat my SD off of the floor, to me that's like saying eating food of the floor is ok, and its not.

we all should help put together a "book of etiquette" for new SD handlers and owner trainers( and have it be toldly FREE! I love free stuff XD ). being an owner trainer myself I wish I would have had one when I started Zoey's training. I started a Google drive doc I think I made it so anyone can edit, if you cant then just post or email me your email address so I can add you or just tell me what you want to add in an email and I will add it for you smile my email is casie.dogskillz@gmail.com and here is the link to the doc happy dance

I was in panda express yesterday and was ask to show my ID card for my service dog. I told him that I am not required by law to hold or show a card, and that there is no such card. But he keep asking... I want to send an email to panda express asking them to retrain there employs, I would like some help on how to go about this (ive never done it before) I would also like to show the law about there being no IDs for service dogs, but I cant seem to find it. I would love any help you can give.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Vest Choices

Zoey

SD (retired)

Zoey so far has had two vests:
the first I used when I began her training, it was just a simple red cape with a zipper pocket on each side, it was big enough to carry some poop bags and her ID tags as I found the jingle they made on her collar annoing. The only thing I did not like about this vest, is that it sometimes sat cricket on her back, which irritated my OCD to no end, and the fact that it did not have a handle. I did not mind this at first but after having her vest now with a handle. I would never go back. You can find a picture of this fast on my profile.

Her second and current vest was inspired by Julius K-9. I love the fact that they had large pouches on each side, but unfortunately there vests/harnesses did not come in the size I needed(extra extra small) with the features I wanted, so I made it myself. of course it's not the quality of the Julius K-9 harnesses, but it serves its purpose well. I love the detachable pouches on each side. Although now I decided not to put my glucose test kit in her vasts. I don't need them that big anymore. Might also has the flashlight holder on each side, which I've only used 2 to 3 times in the past year.but like I said, I love the padded handle and would never use a vest/harness without a handle ever again. both of my vests have Velcro on their sides so that I can move patches around as I please.the picture of this vest can also be found on my profile.

it's been a year and a already plan on making a new vest that I think will suit my needs even more. Her new vest will have like I said, I found I only need a small pouch now to carry information oh brochures, emergency information for me, poop bags and her ID tags. I also went to have it. A light almost mesh/jersey material so that it is not too hot when it's summertime; and of course it will have a handle. I'm sure you'll find depending on your needs. What your dogs vest to have feature wise, examples would be a pouch(and what size), padded straps(or the option), a handle(what type handle a soft or a hard rigid handle), etc. I hope you'll find the perfect fast for you and your service dog.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Hands off policy. No petting!
Zoey

SD (retired)
 
 
Barked: Tue Sep 24, '13 3:31pm PST 
Well I don't go to many places, mainly to church and maybe a quick trip to Walmart or other superstore, I rarely go out to eat. I know church is one place that service dogs don't have legal access, because of that I am very grateful to my church and do let people there pet Zoey, if they ask. luckily, most people there don't bug me scents I'm at church 2 to 3 times a week, and are used to seeing me and my dog. Most people that pet her play around with her are close friends so I don't really mind.I am very strict in wanting people to ask before petting her though, and will usually give them "the look" if they don't ask before petting her. I don't have the heart to say no, and it gives me more anxiety anyway to have someone mad at me. Although I do have a strict no petting policy went out in food stores or anywhere normal dogs are not allowed to go. On Zoey's new vest I'm making I plan on getting a large do not pet me, patch on the back. From what I've heard from other service dog owners on here. They don't help much, but I think it would help me in saying "no" to people who want to pet her, or are petting her.Because it does really bug me when people pet her. When she is working. One of the reasons why I do sometimes let people pet her is the fact that she quickly will focus back on me, if this ever became a problem where she couldn't focus back on me quickly like she does now. I would eliminate the petting altogether.
