I was never really into dogs until we got a puppy last year, now they make me go all squidgy, if you don’t mind me asking what areas does he help you in life. Or maybe I should say how clever is he /she, what can he do.

@Dolse71 He is medical alert/hearing working dog.

  • alerts for fire alarms
  • knocking at door
  • my name (verbal/sign)
  • timer
  • warning when my body will crash
  • light presser therapy
  • behavioral interruption
  • tasking to emotional flashbacks
  • retrieval
  • many other things :slight_smile:

I am a CPDT - certified professional dog trainer (I train service dogs, therapy dogs etc.

I wasn’t always in a wheelchair (it’s been a transition for both of us).

He has been working for 5 years.

I am slowly winding down (hard on the body).

What this dog can do for you is amazing! I never knew this was possible.

He is. He is so grounded and regulated. He is extremely calm.

People are amazed. How relaxed and calm in all situations and stimulation. That comes with partnership and trust (along with training).

That’s amazing, I wish you lived near me to train my dog to stop waking me up every morning at 6:30.

I love you with that hair style. Your beautiful with short hair but I love the bob.

Don’t know why but this picture makes me happy. What a great connection you both have.

Yes maybe I will grow it eventually but with lupus it is SO hard to manage. My muscles get sore from straightening it. I had long hair all the way down my back. The hairdresser told me to cut it short so the nutrients would absorb in my body. I suffered (still do but not as severe) from malabsorption (serious). I need all the nutrition to go into my body and not my thick hair.

@Rob68 thank you. He makes me teary. He’s my right hand.
