    I’d just like to know what kind of dog that is. I have the exact same dog but haven’t been able to figure out the breed.

    I fainted and I am training my puppy to be a service dog cuz I passed out and I couldn’t breathe and I had to go to the hospital

    I looooove dogs

    “A handler and their service dog represent the entire service dog community” very well said. We don’t appreciate those Karen’s who think their untrained incompetent chihuahua is a “service dog”

    Thank you! Can I get a service dog for being anemic?

    I’m thinking about training my puppy to become a service dog for my anxiety attacks and wanted to ask if that’s a good idea? I’ve been educated myself on everything as I wouldn’t be able to afford a trainer for him. (Btw not sure what breed he is but could either be a german shepherd or rottie).

    I have serve anxiety and depression. Also fibromyalgia and many other things. I have trained my Jack Russell to help me when I have panic attacks. She isn’t a service dog even though she is trained to help me. She pulls on a leash, begs for food, and barks all the time at people. I am going to adopt a puppy soon and train her to be my service dog. Taking my dog with me to see how she gets along with the puppy. My husband doesn’t agree with me getting a service dog. I have had fainting spells and feel like passing out. I lose my balance sometimes. Trip over things. I am suffering from a concussion right now. I am always losing balance. I have hit my head so many times, don’t know how many blows to head I can take.

    Ok so I understand that people who suffer with ticks and stuff would obviously be able to have one. But if you where to have really bad social anxiety and have really bad anxiety attacks 1 would that be a disability for a service dog and 2 would a healthy American bully be ok for the job. Thank you love the video (also if anyone else knows please tell me I really need help)

  10. theresarodney on October 8, 2022 at 9:45 am

    Please know I’m not being negative but I don’t see anything on how to train the service animal?

  11. Makenzie May on October 8, 2022 at 9:45 am

    What yah mean see a pet in the video we like and you’ll feature them in another video! How could anyone not like all the pets! Like that’s crazy!!!

  12. Gary Cole on October 8, 2022 at 9:46 am

    One service dog and one handler does not represent the whole community . Unless you’re that closed minded to think one person represents a whole group of people

  13. Buggy Romero on October 8, 2022 at 9:46 am

    That is what i have

  14. Alyssa Vest on October 8, 2022 at 9:46 am

    Put remember if you are a handler in training and so is your dog! It’s okay to have days where its rough during the training process, just remember to redirect the dog and move on. Dogs are dogs and they aren’t perfect so it’s okay to have a bad day. Such as ( your dog accidentally looks at a child and wags it tail or something minor ) but you redirect it. and it’s all good. If its something major mistake (jumps in public but not destructive just playful ) go outside and get it back into training mode and then continue with the day. Its gonna be okay! You got this!

  15. JemiQui77 on October 8, 2022 at 9:47 am

    Thank you for this video.

  16. Shannon Johnson on October 8, 2022 at 9:50 am

    Give you bad reputation really, I train my own and I start at 4 months, but any dog with proper time and training has the ability

  17. magical service pup on October 8, 2022 at 9:51 am

    Some of things that "disqualify" a service dog from working can be corrected and trained to stop as well like pulling on the leash that doesn’t automatically make them unqualified for work my service dog used to pull on her leash and now she doesn’t also sniffing can be a task like location a specific person if the handler needs help or keep them away from things they are highly allergic to as well! ✨

    As a CPTSD Survivor Civilian Woman With Also Hypokalemia/Hypoglycemia Condition….Its discouraging the ignorance and stereotyping of Veterans over Civilians who need a Service Dog, and who can get one right off the bat aka first come first served for veterans over civilians in many facilities I looked at.
    Being told you have a case for a CPTSD and Medical Hypoglycemia condition just to try and find Service Dog Facility. And each says your condition is not worth their time, that its nothing compared to a Veteran even though you have had it 38 years and that includes inability to retain a job, going out places, out to Restaurants or doctors. The places want to try to find anyway to dismiss your case for a needed Service Dog and if they can’t, they’ll use we take only Veterans and 1st responders you’ll have to wait 3 years. Of course lets say you deteriorate because of the condition, start a family then they will try to find other excuses and interrogate you to say "your not someone they can help despite their boosting and bragging that they can, yet only want to cater" to those that’ll boost their image and ratings nothing more despite what’s on their sites. I am trying to raise the money for a Service Dog and both my EMDR and Psychologists said at this point better off training your own then waiting on a list for 3+ years with little to no chance. Also they love to pit a civilian with CPTSD/PTSD over a Veteran think only Veterans have worse case is a load of bs, especially when it comes to civilian women that I realized during 3 interrogating interviews "How long are you in your CPTSD?", "how long do you disassociate?" These questions never put them off from helping a Veteran candidate if they can’t remember and Veterans disassociate like a Civilian.

    Yet they are worried about a Civilian disassociation and not a Veteran when each persons reactions and case are different…total discrimination against civilian women with CPTSD/PTSD . My fiance has gone with me places in case it happens and I’m never alone when it does so their asking how long as if a PTSD Survivor blanks out should remember is a garbage tactic to discredit you and your CPTSD/PTSD so they don’t have to help you.
    Tried so far for 3 years to look into getting a needed Service Dog this year started raising funds and yet not a facility will accept me.
    I’m not gonna wait on a list for 5+ nor 10+ years don’t waist civilians time if these so called Service Dog Facilities never had any interest in helping us Women with CPTSD/PTSD for 30+ years is all I can say. At this point we are 75% sure we will probably use funds to get a private Service Dog coach to help me train my own Service Dog privately.
    These facilities will of course scare tactic, threaten and try to discourage you fron training your own Service Dog because they make no profit from not helping you, yet won’t give you the time of day or help you through them as a candidate……
    So what then other choice is there? They’ll say "if you choose to do it yourself then the dog will never be acknowledged as a Service Dog , or its a felony to train your own Service Dog, even We will report you as that’s a Scam against Real Service Dogs From Service Dog Facilities" Again its all to scare you into their waiting game and deter you from training your OWN Service Dog, which nothing wrong with that, they just don’t like civilians not willing to wait around with no hope then deciding to train their own Service Dog meaning again those facilities won’t get a dime of the training money no profit because they didn’t care enough to accept you as a candidate and didn’t want to help or turned you away….that’s on them. I believe we women civilians being not taken seriously by Service Dog facilities if its in best interest.
    If you have the money and connections to train your own Service Dog after facilities claiming they can help you turn you away…..I say go for it, it might be best investment over being stuck on a waiting list at a facility for 3+ years.

    I have been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, ptsd, and anxiety/panic disorders. Do I need to be receiving disability to have a SD? Will I need an official letter from my psychiatrist?

  20. andrea grazioso on October 8, 2022 at 9:57 am

    you are sickening i cant imagine being so obsessed with a mutt that i would lie that its a service mutt and risk any childs life in that public area just to be with your soulless child killer

  21. Liz on October 8, 2022 at 9:58 am

    Legally you dont need proof of your disability, at least when i read the laws in my state you do not. and its illegal to ask for proof as well.

  22. Aiksoup on October 8, 2022 at 9:58 am

    I have panic attacks when commotion goes on like fighting, yelling etc. I end up not being able to breathe and I crawl and throw up.If I trained my dog to call me down with that be a service dog or emotional support?

  23. Gary Cole on October 8, 2022 at 9:58 am

    Service animals do not have to go to school they just need to be trained they can be trained by their owners which it states in the federal document that you were talking about

  24. Niesa Forster on October 8, 2022 at 10:00 am

    I have a pet potbelly pig too!! My boy is one of my babies, and his little sister my new mini schnauzer comes home next week. She will be learning to be a support dog for me. She’ll technically be an ESA as I don’t *quite* need a service dog but she will need to be able to help me on pain flare days.

  25. JJ Bowman on October 8, 2022 at 10:01 am

    Still one of my favourite service dog videos ❤️❤️❤️

  26. Misty Breeze on October 8, 2022 at 10:02 am

    I’ve seen people try and get away with having their pet snake as a service snake.

  27. Jenna Lopez on October 8, 2022 at 10:06 am

    Was that a spider in the top right corner

  28. Obviously_Oakley on October 8, 2022 at 10:06 am

  29. Sydney Mocha(coming back soon) on October 8, 2022 at 10:07 am

    I’m wondering if ADHD is psychiatric disability because lately I’ve been thinking about putting the effort in trying to train my dog for stuff like that

  30. Buggy Romero on October 8, 2022 at 10:10 am

  31. TheJokerLovesDogs on October 8, 2022 at 10:10 am

    Hello I’m have a new puppy named Dakota who was given to us to train as a service dog for my daughter who has Mito and I’m wondering how to train it properly?

  32. Annie on October 8, 2022 at 10:11 am

    Is it true emotional support animal registering online is false ? They claim real doctors approve of them. I know esa is different then a service animal by abit but still?

  33. The pups that rescued me on October 8, 2022 at 10:12 am

    I clicked on this for training tips hopefully there will be (I have not watched it)

  34. 05-7 on October 8, 2022 at 10:13 am

  35. Nottootrashy on October 8, 2022 at 10:15 am

  36. Princess Peyton on October 8, 2022 at 10:18 am

    My service dog does 6 tasks and I got her for $25,000

  37. Kzurta on October 8, 2022 at 10:18 am

    I have MDD, PPD, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, PTSD, and Iron Deficiency. I’ve wanted to get a service dog, but they’re very very expensive…I’ve been thinking about training my year old dogs. Someone said you can train at any time.

  38. Bre on October 8, 2022 at 10:20 am

    I’ve been training my Duch Shepherd dog to be my service dog for when I’m out in public bc of my anxiety and ptsd

  39. Dope Dog on October 8, 2022 at 10:21 am

  40. Andrew Garfield on October 8, 2022 at 10:25 am

  41. Susan Chilcote on October 8, 2022 at 10:25 am

  42. Axiel BH on October 8, 2022 at 10:26 am

    the best kind of clickbait!

  43. Cats Meow on October 8, 2022 at 10:26 am

    I have heart failure, high blood pressure. I do not take medication and practice alternate ways to alleviate the symptoms like swimming, running and petting my cat. Her purring helps bring down my blood pressure. Is she considered a service cat?

  44. Andrea Somers on October 8, 2022 at 10:26 am

    Horseeeee

  45. Anaya Key on October 8, 2022 at 10:28 am

    A few days ago I was in the store with my 6mo service dog in training and I walked passed an isle with a staffy in a sd vest. The dog went absolutely nuts after seeing my dog and the owner frantically started apologizing and saying she swears he’s a service dog while dragging him off. About 20 minutes later we walked by them again and her dog, of course, went nuts again and she started yelling at me for going near her and distracting him. like huh? Are people really that dumb? My puppy did so well through all of this, I praised her like she was a god for keeping her focus LOL.

  46. Annette Belliveau on October 8, 2022 at 10:28 am

    so no cats then, figures
