    Puppy in kill shelter finds forever home as my service dog. #ServiceDog #Doglove #livechanging #PTSD #CPTSD

    I wanted to share a heartwarming story of my service dog in training who I’ve been waiting to get for two years. My trainer saw this dog in a kill shelter. I asked her to go look at the dogs for me and she did. The dog was starved. His feet were burn from urine, and he was very sick with worms and other parasites. I took him home with me after a week of being at the trainers getting treatment. I’ve had this dog who I named Zane, which which means sustain for only 3 weeks now, and he’s already a rock star in his forever home. I picked that name because he’s my service dog to be, and he will sustain me as I will sustain him. I started training him at Dog’s Play and he started to excel immediately. After just three weeks of having him, he’s already passed his first of four skill Tests to become a full service dog. He has won a ribbon and successfully worked an obstacle course yesterday. Zane is loving, smart, strong and is already helping me to handle my psychiatric disability. I plan on having a long life with my best friend Zane. Please consider adopting dogs instead of buying them. There’s so many dogs out there waiting for a forever homes. . #ServiceDog #Doglove #livechanging #PTSD #CPTSD

    Hi!! I’m new here...

    Hi! My name is Braylynne, and I just recently got a standard poodle that was being trained as a service dog for chronic illness, but the owner stopped working with him 7 months ago. He’s forgotten a lot of skills, but I’ve accepted the challenge of getting him back to where he was!

    My Instagram for him is @service.dog.phoenix

    Will a service dog help me? #ServiceDog #BackPain

    Hi, recently I was speaking to a family member about my pain and got suggested a service dog. This family member has often suggested using a wheelchair or walker to help me walk as I can find it difficult sometimes. I spend a lot of my time in bed due to my pain and find it difficult doing everyday activities like going to the shops, walking to the bathroom or going into school. I also suffer with severe anxiety as well and get lonely a lot. My mum works so when not being able to go to school I am left alone at home to try look after myself until she gets home. I don’t know if a service dog would be helpful and don’t want to take one away from someone who may need it more? We also live in a rented house so aren’t sure if my landlord would allow it. If anyone knows good charities in the UK which might have service dogs that will help with my conditions I would appreciate the help! Thank you! #Scoliosis #BackPain #Undiagnosed #Anxiety

    My little pillow thief😅❤

    Without this sweet boy to care for, I wouldn't have lasted as long on this Earth as I have. My Echo keeps me grounded, gives me unconditional love and snuggles, provides me with beautiful companionship, and motivates me to get out of the house. I'm so proud to be Daddy to this handsome Lil fella🥰❤ #EmotionalSupportDog #ServiceDog #TherapyDog #Suicide #Selfharm #ADHD #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #BipolarDepression #Agoraphobia #Anxiety #PTSD #CPTSD #MightyPets #Pets #TherapyPets

    Service dog training

    Has anyone out there trained their service dog to bring them back/out of disassociation? I'd love some pointers for this.
    Also for digging nails into skin. He has my "twirling my anxiety ring" down and my swaying cue as well. I tried to teach him the nails in my skin but I don't think he's seeing what I'm trying to teach. Pic for tax
