Tips, tricks, and videos!

Some great videos on dog training, dog massage, and general good education for you and your dog.

I've scoured the web for you!  Here are some of my favorite places for you to watch videos on how to help you and your dog  - you human/canine connection. Some programs in the USA offer a waitlist for service dogs, with an intensive application process to assure a good fit for dog and person.

I suspect that the single most important issue for the team is social skills as well as the specific skills the disabled person needs done for them. First step is to pass the Canine Good Citizen test, to make sure the dog can be a public-safe dog - in all the stresses and situations you meet.

There are also owner-trained programs as well, but only for a really rigorous, dedicated team. Pets are so loved, but they just aren't able to cope with the rigors of service dog stresses, so getting a service dog that is prepared and ongoing training are vital to the team success.
