***training update***
I miss having my happy go lucky pup working. She used to LOVE kids. And it hurt a lot seeing her so extremely fearful. With the help of my trainer she is coming along and getting over her fear so well! We use positive reinforcement, no punishment. So when she shows slight fear around a kid I get her to where she's comfortable and praise and treat!! It's helped her come along way. We still only do small outings, no more than 1 1/2 hours long. If she's showing fear of any kind we leave, and make her comfortable. Yes I know she's suppose to save my life, but It's a team effort. This is the longer route, yes, but it's setting her up for success. She's my lifeline I need to take care of her too❤❤ #servicedogteaminkirkwood #stlouis #stl #saintlouis  #servicedogsofinstagram #servicedogteam #servicedogintraining #sdit #lightmobilityservicedog #alexandersdiesease #medicalalertdog #workingdog #neruologicalbraindisorder #workingk9 #servicek9 #birthdefect #disabled #disability #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #ridgebackbeaglemix #autoimmunedisfunction #POTS #tasktrained #leukodystrophy #respectthevest #iworkforher #workingdogofinstagram #publicaccess #servicedogdonotpet  #spooniestrong

Puppy play date with @avrahing15 Flynn and her Boyfriend Max!! We did a quick outing to target and Flynn was only labeled by her collar and OTS leash made by @all.things.paracord.and.more !!! She did amazing and was fantastic.
I'll be making a post about all of our @all.things.paracord.and.more gear tomorrow!! .............

Asleep by my side at my families house. They aren't dog people but understand about Flynn and they love her. She's off leash, but she doesn't roam their house or get into their stuff she remains right by my side or in the same room as me. She's so gentle with their growing age and that's what makes her personality so warming ❤❤❤❤❤

Little explanation:
I wanted to help clear things up. I have talked a lot with my trainer about Flynn. We've determined she's going through a fear stage. I had pulled her from public access till I heard what my trainer had to say. I worked with her about a week and she has recommended that Flynn be pulled partially from PA and only do outings depending on how fearful she is thst day. And when we do go to outings it be under 1 1/2 hours to not over work flynn. If flynn is showing any fear in the morning no she gets left at home. If she's showing no fear then we can go. We're still training every other day to work on her fear. She is getting so much better and is basically back to normal. No I'm not forcing her to work when scared. I only work her if she is very confident that day. She will be on and off PA till my trainer thinks her fear is completely gone and then she will go back to work fully.

Our zoo trip was a huge success and love meeting new handlers. This is Max he's a psychiatric service dog in training and such a love. We also did a lot of basics with Flynn at the zoo and her stays are soooooo much better than the last meetup!! Love meeting Max's handler can't wait for the next meetup with them........

My local elementary school gave us permission for when school gets out that I can practice with Flynn on her fear of kids. We will start on the other side of the street, across from the school and slowly but surely be able to stand right in the center next to their big sign and watch the kids disperse and even walk through the crowds of children. Should I film Flynn's progress???

(We are getting a new over the shoulder leash because ours is too short.)
We are practicing with a Prong collar for about 15 minute intervals and just walking around in a heel so she gets the feel of it. I don't expect her to task or work with it with yet, im slowly introducing it to her. but in about a week we will try using it more.
