Does your dog ignore you - but not your spouse or trainer? Does your dog turn a deaf ear - in your direction? Your dog may be trying to tell you something - but you are not listening; listening that is - the way your dog is listening. It may be that your tone of voice matters when training your dog.
Properly-trained Service Dogs can provide an incredible breadth benefits to disabled individuals. From mobility assistance and independence, assisting with everyday tasks, summoning help when needed, alerting to night terrors and more. There's a lot of focus on Golden Retrievers, Bichon Frisés and German Shepherds, but purebreds aren't the only types of dogs that can be trained to become excellent Service Dogs. Some organizations are helping homeless dogs get a second chance as Service Dogs.
