Our guide harness from @incredibullruby FINALLY arrived. It was originally mailed in October and even though it was correctly addressed, @canadapostagram never tried to deliver it to me and returned it because “not at this address”. Eventually it arrived back in Australia and she sent it out again. This time it arrived! He looks great in his galaxy guide harness and it works great! The fleece is so soft and it’s so comfortable to use! I am dizzy and having a hard time focusing to the point I walked into the cement step and banged my knee on it hard. Decided this was a good time to test his skills at helping me avoid obstacles, so we practiced some guiding when I took him out for a little walk. Bandana is by @simplepawspets the rest of the pics are just... he’s been making funny faces all day today and making me laugh so I thought I would share the laughs at what a silly goober he is. #servicedog #servicedogintraining  #coltriever #bordercolliemix #servicedogsofinstagram #goldenretrievercross #canadianservicedog #cardiacalertdog #dysautonomia #ehlersdanlossyndrome #tasktrained #dysautonomiaalertservicedog #medicalalertdog #medicalresponsedog #canadianservicedogs #stiffpersonsyndrome #dogtraining #dogsofinstagram #cutedogs #servicedogtraining #dysautonomia #servicedogoffduty #funnydogface #goofydog

Man, it's been a rough week. All I keep telling myself is that it'll get better. How is your week going?

Throwback to train rides with my favourite little cousin! Alyss got to wear my other @purplepoodles harness while we were away. Yes that is a counterbalance handle and no, it was not used for counterbalance. Alyss' mama's (my mama's sister) has some different disabilities, and some the same.. the counterbalance handle was used for grounding throughout this trip. Alyss is much too young to do mobility work yet but once she's old enough she's gonna be a good multipurpose Assistance Pupper just like me 🐶🌸

Let's talk about why you can't distract service dogs. As handlers, when we tell people not to pet, coo at, or otherwise distract our dogs, many of us get this question: "Well, why not?" I've found that a lot of handlers, including myself, will jump to the explanation of medical alert dogs missing an alert, after which their handler goes into an episode without being able to prepare themselves. What picture is this painting for the uneducated public, however? That only medical alert dogs can't be distracted? Unfortunately, yes. If the public only hears this one reason over and over again, they'll start to assume that medical alert dogs are the only service dogs that need to be ignored. When they see something like "psychiatric response" or "mobility service dog", they'll think back to what we have said and decide to distract these dogs anyway. This may not always be the case, but it's become all too common for me to see. I've heard people in public tell me this before, saying that they leave medical alert dogs alone but others are fine to distract.
So what can we say instead that will help the general public understand the importance of ALL kinds of service animals? "Distracting a service dog keeps it from performing tasks that their handler needs to live a normal life." This can apply to any task, not just medical alerts. A dog could be distracted from performing many tasks, such as retrievals, pressure therapy, behavior interruptions, pressing buttons, forward momentum, guiding, and more. Of course you can provide examples of tasks or continue using the language you have been, but this is what I recommend to make sure that the public understands the importance of leaving ALL service animals alone. Perhaps if this change in language is made, the public will become more understanding of our animals.
