Dog decompression is important! I will never forget the first several times I told a foster that the dog needs to decompress when coming into their home. They looked at me as if I was being unfair to the dog. Most humans, if they are not properly educated about crates, consider crates a source of punishment. Crates aren’t cruel, they are safe places dogs enjoy. However, if you use them as punishment, that is how the dog will look at it. Think of it this way, would you go on a cruise if the boat didn’t have cabins, go to a resort with no individual rooms? Read More: https://SoCal.Dog/Decompression

Accidents happen and it is better to be prepared beforehand. This includes putting together a great first aid kit for your dog. Obviously, there are many canine first aid kits on the market and I have rarely seen one that was inherently bad. However, once you are in an emergency situation with your dog and only have one of these minimalist first aid kits, you wish you had planned better.
.
I have dealt with my fair share of emergency situations and have discovered which items are most valuable to have on hand and which not so much. This article covers what I have in my mobile dog first aid kit—I also have a really big one for people and dogs but that is not something I would want to carry around. The first aid kit must be small and light enough to be carried or even attached to your dog’s vest, harness, or pouch, but still contain all vital components in case things go wrong.

His “check ins” are incredible.
Check ins are a big part of having a service dog.
When a person’s dog is paying no attention to them, the dog can’t be expected to help. If you find yourself in a situation like this, definitely look into the handler/dog relationship.

Happy Gotcha Day Storm! He was pulled and saved by @houndsandheroes to become a part of my service dog team. He is such an amazing boy and I’m so lucky to have him by my side.

SD Storm does a breath check more frequently on days that I’m really struggling with pain or ptsd.

Double Service Dog team with Storm(cardiac alert, balance and stability) and Deshka(mobility, ptsd, and cardiac). We’ve done a ton of work at home, now is the time to expose them to anything and everything.

Spending time with Lincoln before he flies home. He has been so much fun when it comes to teaching new tasks. He is such a gentle boy only to be attacked in previous posts because of his appearance. This is not something new, but it’s sure frustrating. •

Once you teach the middle, next thing you will start to notice is that this will be another behavior they like to offer. One moment you are working with your #gsd and the next moment a #pitbull running between your legs. •

Repost from @ashleyguidry0323 - Throughout my health journey, I’ve learned that one of the most important things that helps me through is support from those I love. Today, I want to thank my wonderful friend and service dog trainer, Sarah Gill. This is a picture of us when Cinder first started doing public access. Sarah, thank you for helping me become aware of my strength. You taught me to be unashamed of who I am and to stand up for my rights as a handler. Cinder and I are truly blessed to have you in our lives. @totalk9focus #servicedog #eds #edsawarenessmonth #invisibleillness ...

Repost from @happy.dog.training - Double wheelchair training. My boy Sylvester has IVDD and now uses a wheelchair outside. He clearly likes the mobility but is still figuring out how to maneuver. I opted against surgery due to his age and my prior experience with the same condition and surgery outcome in Neko. It has been maintained for the most part with daily CBD/THC drops but on poor mobility days, we do this.

Our girl Deshka is learning to walk next to and eventually pull Sarah's wheelchair. She is in training as a personal mobility service dog by #totalk9focus. 😊🐾

We are taking advantage of the social distancing for training purposes. Grizzly is a seizure service dog in training. •
