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!

Sleepy pup. We went on a 1 mile bike ride, played in the lake, and went to the dreaded Walmart. In Walmart we had a child scream at us, yes it startled Flynn but once the children moved away and I got Flynns focus back she did good the rest of the time. All In a 20 minute outing

**Training update**
So I've been doing PA with Flynn if she's up for it then only doing 1 hour outings with 2 hours rest time/ off duty. Then if she's up for it we will go back out to PA. (I'm sorry for lack of content) I whole heartedly appreciate all the ones who messaged me on tips and tricks on how to overcome her fear of kids ❤. Today Flynn rocked it! We went to a new store, HomeGoods. She ignored every kid didn't hesitate or fear away from a gaggle of kids blocking the restroom and tasked 100%! Then we went to @JoAnns to get Flynn a #PrideMonth themed harness materials. Flynn did get excited when a teen came super close to me but focused when I asked and told her to leave it. But all in all she is doing amazingly. If I take her to the convention we will be doing our same routine of 1 hour PA to 2 Hour off duty. I'm still iffy on if I want to take her but if she keeps this up I'm sure Flynn will have her 100% confidence back. .......

Sorry for shaky video. But this is how we maneuver out of the bathroom, With my chair and her. She sits in the stall and waits till I call her. I forgot to ask her to grab her leash so it drug the ground, ew germs! (I washed it and my gloves when I got home) she did return to heel but how I was holding the camera I couldn't get a good shot

We got our new vest in today!! It's from @herosvest it's so very cute! They also sent us a bandana in matching fabric. The shop owner is so sweet and understanding and such a doll to work with. It's a lightweight vest and SO well made. First impressions are everything and when I opened up the package and took the vest out I was shocked. It has a very cute logo of the shop on the vest itself. The logo isn't distriacting or in your face but it's there and so cute. Definitely can't wait to take this vest out for a test run!!! Patches:

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***
