KID RUNS UP TO SERVICE DOG 🛑 No! (READ DESCRIPTION)

KID RUNS UP TO SERVICE DOG 🛑 No! (READ DESCRIPTION)

Went on a training session today. I like to bring treats out when I know we’re going to train so I can reinforce good behavior.

We were at an outlet mall. They have an off leash dog park (we learned about after but did not use), and are pet friendly outside the shops and restaurants.

It’s not often we get to be around live music. So I wanted to get close and work on confidence building and focusing in high distraction environments. There were a lot of pet dogs around too.

Get up to the stage, she’s a bit unsure/unfocused. Work through that. Had a friend stop and say hi.

Then, had a little boy come up out of no where.

Now personally, I don’t ever just allow an interaction. I always stop the child, tell them no. Move Mya behind me. And you can kind of hear me tell the boy not to go up to dogs he doesn’t know because not all dogs are nice and he could get bit. Etc. If the parents aren’t going to teach their children, I will. And I have no idea where the kids parents were.

The boy seemed to have his own potential mental/learning issues. I’m not sure what. But taking that into mind, after the corrections i gave him. I asked if he would like to help make her spin.

Now Mya loooooooves kids. So you’ll see a bit of that excitement. She licks his hands.
So after a moment, I was kind of ready for the boy to go, so I just kind of stood there and starting asking Mya for continuous focus.

This was a pretty good training session. She had a boy she didn’t know waving his hand over her head and face. He then grabbed her handle. And she did good.

I would like to train around live music more. But considering the amount of chaos that was around us. I was very proud of her.

(My brother was recording for me while my husband sat at the table with the baby.)

    Wow, you’re good with dogs and with kids

  2. Sayim Ayar on March 10, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Looks like a service human

  3. Artist on March 10, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Well it looked like a performance. I also wouldn´t guess that would be a service dog on training.

  4. Bahareh Bahari on March 10, 2023 at 5:25 am

    I would have slapped him across the face if he would run to my service dog.

    I remember my chihuahua when we first got her was very nervous around new people and would have a tendency to growl at new people who tried to pet her especially children anytime she went somewhere to the groomers or vet she had to be muzzled cause we were worried she’d bite someone taking her to the pet store worried me I was afraid she’d bite someone who tried to pet her especially kids so I bought her a little harness that said Do Not Pet and worked with her on her anxiety issues now she doesn’t need it and has mellowed out with age and will let people pet her. I’m glad and impressed with the way you handled this kid because this is how people get bit in the end I’m glad it worked out well and was a great learning experience for both you your dog and the child

    Respect to the dad who took away his little girl before she ran towards the service dog

  8. malice on March 10, 2023 at 5:33 am

    Good way of teaching. He messed up, but now he knows. Sometimes the only way to learn, if by messing up.

  9. Death metal liliasa on March 10, 2023 at 5:34 am

    This is a cute dog!

  10. PKGenner on March 10, 2023 at 5:35 am

    that’s a MASSIVE no no!

  11. hi on March 10, 2023 at 5:35 am

    I have a service dog called tip and he is pitbull and he helps when I faint and I go into these like where I just loose it I come back like in 1 or 2 minutes but my dog helps

  12. andrew geary on March 10, 2023 at 5:35 am

    Dear lord, so attention starved and has to be in control of everything. Seen one vid where u get pissed at a lady for looking at your dog and talking to her and then the next vid your doing tricks in the middle of the store. I know a few people with very good service dogs, and yours is to she is wonderful but they are not controlling and know how the world works.

  13. Via-Anghel Magahum on March 10, 2023 at 5:36 am

    I know this is a stupid question but is it true some service dogs are trained to do like a weird version of CPR?

    And that they can be trained to sense if an owner might have a seizure or drop in blood pressure?

    Cause that’s just cool

  14. tina orr on March 10, 2023 at 5:38 am

    I suspect that dear little boy is autistic. My own son is, and I can see the same lack of fear, awareness or boundaries. Thank you for teaching him what to or not to do, with kindness, instead of simply getting angry at him. Well done sweet Mya.

    I’m always attracted to all dogs and want to greet and touch them . I have a bond since 2 and am now 62. But with service dogs I must wait for permission.. usually less than 5 % are unapproachable because of timidness and the under 2% you can see it , aggressive.

  16. LeeLeexD on March 10, 2023 at 5:40 am

    You were so nice.

  17. Anna Tesanovich on March 10, 2023 at 5:41 am

    This os so distracting

  18. Artofficial on March 10, 2023 at 5:41 am

    Awesome! Some people are just like “ don’t distract my dog” but you handled this perfectly

  19. XxBailey._.SoftieRobloxX on March 10, 2023 at 5:42 am

    It was a accedent:/

  20. Peter Husacek on March 10, 2023 at 5:44 am

    Where did you get that harness for your dog

  21. Brina Codding on March 10, 2023 at 5:45 am

    I love love LOVE how you handled this. Ive seen so many people who just freak out and yell from situations like this. Im a cashier and Im always slightly terrified when someone brings a service dog in. All of those people have been super nice though, and a few regulars who don’t mind answering questions will talk about their dogs with me. One girl who i talk with often said "even the times when im having an attack and someone comes over to ask about Shiva, ill try to explain the situation first, then talk when im able too. Education isnt important as my comfort, but the more people that are educated on how to interact with service animals, the more comfortable i can be"
    I have no idea if i spelt her dogs name right or not

  22. Kazi Kaz on March 10, 2023 at 5:47 am

    You handled that so well. Mad props!

  23. Fãñtãšÿ on March 10, 2023 at 5:48 am

    I like how you were nice to him when you were telling him not to pet her but in a nice way also I liked how you let him help train her!

    Baby in the back gets swept away lol

  25. Animal Lover on March 10, 2023 at 5:52 am

    Maya was so good with the child just running up to her! ❤️

  26. ♡☆My Melody on March 10, 2023 at 5:55 am

    I just wanna pet service dogs but I can’t cuz they are working and doing their job don’t talk or pet a service dog it’s doing it’s job

  27. Alexander S on March 10, 2023 at 5:55 am

    I wish you would have lambasted that idiot white privileged kid for his misogyny and privilege as well. He wouldnt have done that if he wasn’t who he was. I know it’s uncomfortable to yell or use extreme language on a non birthing child. But next time. Please do. He deserved it.

  28. Leanne Parker on March 10, 2023 at 5:56 am

    Service Dog Paws I thought the kid was going to cry, if that were me I would cry and run away in tears

  29. Dustin Haas on March 10, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Who’s fat kid is that

  30. |The"Dog"Muttl on March 10, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Tbh I wouldn’t let ANYONE even make my service dog make a trick, for me, I like my service dog to only listen to me , so she doesn’t get distracted if she hears the word “sit” or “paw’ from a stranger and misses a command that’s for my own good , so yeah .

  31. Henri-Hugo Parik on March 10, 2023 at 6:00 am

    Where are the childs parents

  32. Livia Filgueiras on March 10, 2023 at 6:00 am

    Hé Looked like 6-7 but i ALWAYS know no touching dogs Before asking JUST If u READ this never touch dogs withouten permission

  33. OddSauce on March 10, 2023 at 6:00 am

    I like how you trained both your dog and a kid that day

  34. King (Jimmy98) on March 10, 2023 at 6:02 am

    The boy’s parents or guardian was being highly irresponsible, they dont know you or your dog and to let the kid approach without assumptions was dangerous on their part. You did nothing wrong, actually had surprised me letting the kid continue his interaction with the dog

  35. Wahoohoo on March 10, 2023 at 6:04 am

    Hey look a stage with someone singing. If I go over there I can be the center of attention.

  36. ebi ! on March 10, 2023 at 6:05 am

    Love the way you handled that! Ive seen other service dog owners just snap at children, which is really sad to watch. My service dog is really excited near people and loves to go up to random people and lick them and play around, so we are working on that right now! Have a good day/night<3

  37. Yessir on March 10, 2023 at 6:06 am

    The kids were literally baited into the dog lmao coincidentally someone was recording for her

  38. Scott McAllister on March 10, 2023 at 6:09 am

    Had an experience very similar with a young boy but the child keep trying to hit my Chloe it was hard for me to maintain myself final his mother came over to help me explain to him that he should always ask and never hit a dog. I suffer from PTSD and I have blackouts my Chloe has never let me down and is always by my side

  39. Ali San on March 10, 2023 at 6:10 am

    Poor parenting as always

    Looks like you’re the one approaching the area with kids with your dog, while filming the whole thing hoping for some sort of an incident to be caught on camera.
