    Golden Doodles are NOT hypoallergenic & actually require MORE coat maintenance than a standard poodle

    I have a labradoodle, who is now 5 years old , love her so much i wrote a song about her, the best looking dog that i’ve ever seen. if you have time here it is.

    I know I’m a year late but… service dogs and therapy dogs are totally different…

  8. Working Dog on December 12, 2019 at 10:17 am

    Nice video but its a little confusing emotional support dogs are not service dogs, autism assistance dogs fall under psychiatric service dog category. Therapy dogs also are not service dogs, therapy dogs are dogs used to bring comfort to a group of people in a place like a hospital. Guide dogs are for blind individual only. Service dogs in general can be used for Physical or Psychiatric disabilities.

    I qualify for a service dog and i cant afford it .

  10. Kim Lowe on December 12, 2019 at 10:22 am

    Minischnaizer should be on the list.

  11. Fortnite Run on December 12, 2019 at 10:27 am

    wait is it a therapy or service dog?

  12. ShadowSamurott on December 12, 2019 at 10:29 am

    I know i’m three mouths late but i’m 13 and me and my parents are thinking about getting me a service dog, major anxiety and depression along with the asperger’s part (( that how you spell it? )). Hopefully this can help me a little. Don’t mind misspelling cause it’s one in the morning here and two i’m not good at spelling some words correctly

    I have a service dog for Autism. I have an Australian Shepherd, and For my next service dog I will ethier get a golden retriever or a labrador Retriever. Who would recommend a lab or golden? What what you guys recommend?

  14. A B on December 12, 2019 at 10:30 am

    In Quebec (Canada) the MIRA foundation cross-breeded labrador with bernois, they call it "Labernois". since the bernois have tendencies to have health issues, they mixed the 2 to have the ultimate service dog for the blind and most recently for autistic and/or disabled people. Thank you for this very informative video <3

  15. Kim on December 12, 2019 at 10:31 am

    I most likely has autism or aspergers, getting it checked soon. I also have a staffy, and shes not a trained service dog. But she can still sence when im stressed and comes up to me right away. Shes my little angel<3 The bestest friend ive ever had

    Good video glad to see you are back on air again ………. for me the statistics you started with in regards to the rise and prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder / Aspergers in today’s population is a real cause of concern.
    Like all thing there seems to be an ass backwards way of dealing with things……. as to find a solution for a symptom as…… opposed to find a cure for the problem.
    Great channel keep up the great work Regards Russell

    What about adults with autism ? I am a high functioning autistic adult who may have an interest .

  18. Lunar Gem on December 12, 2019 at 10:38 am

    I already have a dog and I know my dad won’t let me get another one. My dog doesn’t help as much because she is small and full of energy. The dogs that help me the most are labs and golden retrievers, like if I see one in the pet store and I ask to pet it, the dog helps me be calm, and makes it easier for me to breathe. I have autism and I feel like the only hope left is getting a service dog. My family can’t afford to pay $15,000 though. How can I get my small dog trained to be able to have public acess with me?

  19. misspinkpunkykat on December 12, 2019 at 10:39 am

    You guys realize that adults can be autistic too, right? Or do autistic children disappear once they turn 18?

  20. epicmillie on December 12, 2019 at 10:40 am

    I’m getting a St. Bernard as my therapy dog after I’m back from holiday. I’m visiting her tomorrow I’m so happy

  21. Isaiah Alvarado on December 12, 2019 at 10:41 am

    Although this is a nice video, there are a few things that aren’t accurate. Therapy dogs, and service dogs are two different things. And Service dogs are NOT FOR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT. Autism dogs ARE TASKED TRAINED.

    After living and working with Dobermans for 4 decades and NEVER having one with questionable temperament, our Dobes were constant visitors for Show & Tell for many years as well as certified therapy dogs. I would highly recommend them for this list. After all, Louis Dobermann hand selected breeds to design a breed that was solely a companion to their family. Sadly, a long list of health issues continue to plague the breed. Our 17 year old son has struggled with verbal apraxia for years. After losing a Doberman he was raised with, his apraxia was more prevalent. He never allowed himself to bond with another Doberman. It wasn’t until we adopted a sweet "pitbull" that had been in a shelter for nearly 3 years that we saw him bond to a dog again and his apraxia became much less apparent. He is now a junior in high school with a 4.0 in all Honors courses. We also have a 4 year old grandson with moderate ASD and problems with attachment to others. His outbursts would last for hours. He has very limited speech. Our daughter went through a rescue/foster home and also found an EXTREMELY laid back and gentle pitbull mix. The difference in our grandson has been nothing short of AMAZING! Sorry do long, but I just wanted to tel our story about our amazing boys and their shadows; 2 beautiful priceless pitbulls that have unconditional love they give each and every day.

  24. Rainbow Llama on December 12, 2019 at 10:46 am

    What about a purebred pug? Does anyone have an answer for that i have one and im training it to be a service dog for my dads girlfriend’s son, Jack.

  25. Shane Y on December 12, 2019 at 10:47 am

    I have Autism, specifically ADD and Aspergers. it’s hard to work at school everyday and just be a normal kid. I get overwhelmed easily, hard time falling asleep, and had anxiety, especially on first days of school. I’ve almost gotten lost in stores from getting distracted so much. I feel as if having such a dog would change my life and make me more social and more..comfortable in school and help out
