    emoticon Socialization is so important and the article gives some good basics.

    emoticon However, there is a significant error in the section regarding adult dogs. Emotional support animals are not the same as pet therapy animals.

    There are many misconceptions about various types of therapy, service, and support animals. Unfortunately there are also growing numbers of animals wearing generic service collars and vests that are untrained or lack certification for this work. I have two dogs that are certified therapy pets in an organization that is nationally affiliated and insured. My dogs were evaluated and observed before they were certified and are required to re-certify every two years. It is very rewarding work so if you are interested - please seek out a reliable program.

    This is so true. I see this in the dogs I have adopted. They are doing so much better. Even friends have noticed the difference in them. It takes time. Thanks for sharing

    We see fears with the older dogs we rescue.

    I have a dog that spent the first 9 months of her life in a cage. I am even guessing that they took her away from her mother too young. The man who left her at the SPCA said that she had nipped his daughter when she was pulling on her hair. We fell in love with her when we found her on Pet Finder.
    Yes, she is anxious, she was afraid of my hubby for the first few days, but she settled quite well. She is afraid of strangers, the electricity going off, doors closing by themselves, etc. She absolutely LOVES kids. When my youngest grandson was born, she treated him as if he was her own baby. He literally could do what he wanted to her, pulling, stretching her mouth...Shadow, my dog would just try to lick him, has never shown any aggression to kids or towards anybody. Unfortunately for her, I have to bring her to the stable this Saturday, because the vet is coming for all the horse vaccinations and the dogs, which means quite a lot of people, mind you, she not that bad there, as she has come with us ofte.
