Ships in 3-5 business days
The Director of Little Angels Service Dogs covers everything you will need to know from selecting a dog for the type of assistance you need, to training advanced obedience for public access, and life-changing assistance tasks to help you with day-to-day life. Service Dog training varies greatly from pet dog training with differences in potty training, controlled loading and unloading from vehicles and public transportation, training to stay under restaurant tables and under chairs to stay out of aisle ways in public, and how to behave around people and other dogs while working as a service dog in the public setting. Specialized tasks include teaching your dog public access skills, alerting to and recognizing seizures, training to go get help, bring the phone, or dial a service dog telephone, bracing for balance, and deep pressure therapy for assistance during and after a seizure. Service dog etiquette, management, and laws are discussed.
