Hey everyone, so as you might remember I have CP and am non-verbal and this summer I am getting a puppy to train to be my serivce dog. I am owner training, not going through an organization. It's going to be a Labradoodle puppy from a reputable breeder who scan all her dogs for genetic problems and raises them in a family setting (not in cages). I'm going to graduate school next fall so I need to start now. I still have my older dog who is not fond of other dogs but I have solved the problem by having the puppy live at a friend's house until I'm ready to move for school. I will still be taking the puppy 8+ hours a day from my friends house to work on training and socialization. I'm excited and just wanted to tell you guys.
