My pup is half Staffordshire Terrier and half Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I am training her as we go (I have a progressive physical issue) to be my service dog. She already knows so much, I'm just unsure what I'll need her to do later, so its a continual learning process for us!
What sucks is she's a scardy dog. Serious shyness. Good thing service dog vests keep people from trying to pet her, she'd run away otherwise (seriously, pickles and sneezing scared her at one point)!
I try to dress her up a bit - pink collars, neck-kerchiefs, my mom even made Halloween saddle bags for her - adorable! Try to make people less afraid of the wuss. It amazes me how many think she's evil! They are so missing out!
