Check into the following books Advanced Schtuzhund by Ivan Balabanov and Karen Duet and schutzhund theory and yraining methods by susan barwig and stewart hilliard. Ivan also has videos online. Consider joining a club if possible. The dog needs to have the drive to work an d excellent temperment

Also, I hope your family.members come around it really does help as far as support goes. But there are support groups and meet ups around that revolve around the service dog communities.

Oh. I was thinking they meant that all service dogs had to come from an organization. I am a bit relieved now.I always ask all establishments for permission.Even with mypast service dogs when they were in training. Thank you so much.

I am including a url of Texas service dog laws. I am concerned because with my last service dog city hall told me an owner trained service dog was legal as long as it was properly trained for public access and was trained to complete tasks to mitigate my disability . This site suggest that owner trained service dogs are not permitted. However I thought ADA allowed owners to self train services dogs regardless of what state we live in. My concern is that I have a sdit that is owner trained and I do mot want to break any laws. The concern is locates on the 6th bullet on the site listed below. If my perception of the wording is in. correct my apologies . http://governor.state.tx.us/disabilities/resources/assistance_animal s/ .

Harley naturally stayed near me during seizures. He would just lay down and be there for me even as a young puppy. He naturally retrieved and loved to bring me items such a medications cell phone etc.. I taught him to speak on command to aid in getting help when I needed it. Upon other much needed task.

Diesel alerted me before oncoming seizures and after shaping it he naturally blocked me from falling off the couch or beds and would herd me to tell me a seizure was coming and I better sit down. I taught him to grab my medical purse as a signal to alerting me.

Sage a full brother to diesel is starting to alert and I am teaching him to grab a dummy purse to signal me.
All of my dogs were unique and were taught alot of tasks. These just stick out to me.

Service & Therapy Dogs > WHat are Texas' laws about apartments and service animals?xas and service dogs

Sage

A service dog cannot be denied access, however a service dog in training isn't exactly covered and it may be up to the land lords discretion to allow an sdit in the apartment. Also would the dog be an emotional support animal for your ptsd or will it also be trained for your autism? Service dogs and emotional support animals are similar but different and there are different access laws for each. It pays to do your research before getting a dog to help you in daily activities. In my experience dog friendly apartments in Texas are more accepting to sdit and esa in training than non dog friendly places.

I love Victors. Most of their products are all natural grain free formulas. The only down side is it is a smaller Texas based company and not all states sell it.
