Overview

If you want a service dog because you have a physical or mental disability but you don't want to be on a waiting list for years, or you can't afford such a trained dog, it may be possible for you to train a dog yourself. Certified service dogs can go with their handler in every public place where dogs usually are not allowed, like in shops, libraries, museums, theatres and cinemas. A service dog can be of any breed and size, from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane. The most popular service dog breeds are Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd. The important part is that your dog has the right personality. It has to be willing to work, calm and unafraid.....

I can't believe i paid 7 dollars for this book. It is 9 pages long and doesn't tell me anything i didn't already know. No specifics on what to look for, what or how to train. Nothing. Very disappointed... I think they should list the pages or something in the description.....

This is a very basic starter book for people interested in a service dogs. There are a number of things that need to be added. 1. mentioning to talk to reputable service dog trainers to get an idea what type of dog they would suggest, based on a persons disabilities and there personality. 2. The handler needs to know how difficult it will be to train certain breeds and know how patient they - the handler is. 4. The handler needs to consider the type of tasks the dog will be required to do. . Additional chapters should be added a) the ADA's stance on service dogs - where they can and cannot go. provide a realistic cost for training thw dog as well as associated costs (i.e., a harness if needed, grooming costs, etc.) I hope the author is considering on expanding on this book. There aren't to many books on this subject. The ones I have read are too shallow.
