For those living with leukodystrophies, like my daughter Skyler, help raise awareness of these incredibly rare diseases during September, leukodystrophy awareness month. #alexandersdiesease #stennisfoundation #GlobalGenes #RAREis #unitedleukodystrophyfoundation

So update! My allergy test came back and I now have a rescue inhaler to add to my many tools to help fight my chronic illnesses! 👊 Flynn also went to her first hair salon and she did amazing! She was very curious about the buzzing but settled in nicely when I asked for a "settle". All in all I have had a good couple of days so far!

No dog is perfect, but by being a responsible handler means cutting something short or not doing it anymore. Flynn was amazing we were there for 30 minutes, and then she got nervous and fearful. So I went and sat in a running car and she was better! She will get over this, I will get over this. But most importantly we will get over this together as a team. Which is what we're meant to be. #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

"How old was Flynn when you started PA in non pet friendly places?" Flynn was 11 months old when she went to her very first Non Pet Friendly place. She was rock solid, responded amazingly, a bomb proof dog. She got all of her nessecary training done at PetSmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Parks, and Outside malls. "Why did you wait so long for non pet friendly?" I believe that the dog should pass the CGC before PA. That's my own opinion. No I don't support taking a 13 week old dog to Office Max as a SDIT. I know some handlers that waited to 1 year old to start PA training. "Flynn is almost 2 years old why isn't she done training yet"
I will not push my dog too far. I work at her pace. Yes if my SDIT is showing fear or isn't happy to work one day, guess what? I'm not dragging her out into public. When I return home we will do training drills/ confidence building. ***THESE ARE MY OPINIONS ON THINGS, YOU TRAIN YOUR DOG HOW YOU WANT. DON'T LIKE MY OPINION? UNFOLLOW***

Went to @treatsunleashed and practiced holding our place while the kids I babysat call her and toss treats in front of her. She only had to be reminded once to "place". Even with all the dogs trying to greet her she never broke her "place".

We went to the zoo today! There was a lot of schools there today and I was prepared to leave if Flynn was fearful but she did amazing! Only got fearful once when a kid stomped behind her but after we left that area immediately and had a small break she was right back to normal! #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

My entire family had a great day today! Flynn's training has a big part of them involved. I love them so much and wouldn't trade them for the world (Someone dropped a chair when this photo was taken Flynn got startled)
