Layla was rescued nearly at the last minute from a shelter in North Carolina. She is a sweet dog with a great attitude and Crisis Dogs NC spotted her within an hour of he being put down. Mission - Getting Layla from a kill shelter to service dog training
September is National Service Dog Month and these animals and their handlers are truly partners that have a unique bond. According to ServiceDogCentral.org, it is estimated that there are approximately 100,000 to 200,000 service dogs in the U.S. and this number seems to be growing.
Galen is now 7-months-old. His training as a service dog has, for the most part, gone smoothly. There have been a few training hiccups, but all have been minor. For instance, I began using a halter on Galen, for he is now 75 lbs and very strong.
If I am going to be spending cozy winter evenings snuggling with my girl, then I would like to be as warm and fashionable as I can be. Like I said, I am a proper gentleman, and when my service dog vest is off, I would prefer to maintain my modesty with a finely made housecoat and slippers.
