Ryder – Service Dog In Training

Lately, most of my posts have been about the birds and other wildlife around our farm. But, like most folks I also have a job to support my hobbies!

This is Ryder, a German Shepherd Dog that came to us from his owner for professional Service Dog Training. This video shows an outing to a home improvement store. The handler is Robert, my husband, and all around exceptional dog trainer.

The point of a Service dog is to help mitigate his handler’s disability. Typically, that means the dog will need to accompany his owner into public places. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) supports the use of a Service Dog in public, as long as it behaves to their written standards and does not cause a nuisance to others. Along with teaching the dog tasks to assist his owner, we train our clients’ dogs to meet the ADA’s expectations for exceptional behavior in public.
