Notice how almost all Service Dog websites only show dogs on leashes. If the dogs are really trained, why are all of them on leashes? We are renowned for getting all breeds of dogs Off-Leash Obedient without using shock collars. No one has more off-leash obedient dogs they trained to show you.
Everyone has a camera on their cellphone. We are BEHAVIORAL TRAINERS specializing in Off-Leash Obedience. What you see in our photos is what you get. Tell us we are wrong, but 99% of Service Dog trainers, agencies, organizations, schools, and charities do not have ANY photos of dogs they trained to be off-leash obedient on their websites. Many Service Dog websites even show dogs they say are “trained” wearing prong collars and head halter restraints.
BE CAREFUL not to buy thin air. Being a 501(c) charity or pontificating at length and pointing to authorities and State and Federal laws is different than showing dozens of dogs you trained to substantiate the efficacy of your Service Dog training. Well-meaning is different than well-qualified. In the dog training profession, like many professions, 5% of the dog trainers are getting 95% of the results. If someone was proud of their dog training, they would show dozens of dogs they trained. Either someone has photos of dogs they trained or they do not, there is no in-between.
SKIP THE BUREAUCRATIC RUNAROUND. Deal directly with the trainer for better service and lower cost. No waiting 2 to 5 years to get a dog from an agency that was “trained” by well-meaning amateur volunteers.
EMOTIONAL SUPPORT DOG TRAINERS. Have a dog that makes you feel better that you can take anywhere pet dogs are normally allowed.
Sacramento Service Dog For You
Service Animals in Sacramento
Service animals are sometimes referred to as assistance animals, assist animals, support animals, or helper animals.
For a person to legally qualify to have a service dog, he/she must have a disability that substantially limits his/her ability to perform at least one major life task without assistance.
To qualify as a service dog, the dog must be individually trained to perform that major life task. All breeds and sizes of dogs can be trained as service animals.
Emotional Support Animals in Sacramento
An emotional support animal (ESA) is a person’s pet that has been prescribed by a person’s licensed therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist (any licensed mental health professional). The animal is part of the treatment program for this person and is designed to bring comfort and minimize the negative symptoms of the person’s emotional/psychological disability.
ESAs are also sometimes referred to as comfort animals, comfort pets, or companion animals. Dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, mini-pigs, hedgehogs, and many more species may qualify as an ESA. These animals do not require specific task-training because it is the very presence of the animal that mitigates the negative symptoms associated with a person’s disorder. An ESA can be any age.
What Animals Qualify To Be An ESA?
All domesticated animals may qualify as an ESA (cats, dog, mice, rabbits, birds, snakes, hedgehogs, rats, mini pigs, ferrets, etc.) and they can be any age (young puppies and kittens, too!). These animals do not need any specific task-training because their very presence mitigates the symptoms associated with a person’s psychological/emotional disability, unlike a working service dog. The only requirement is that the animal is manageable in public and does not create a nuisance in or around the home setting.
Therapy Animals in Sacramento
Many people confuse Therapy Animals with Service Dogs. A therapy animal is normally a dog (but can be other species) that has been obedience trained and screened for its ability to interact favorably with humans and other animals. The primary purpose of a therapy dog is to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, and to people with learning difficulties.
Therapy animals may be classified into three different types:
The first (and most common) are “Therapeutic Visitation” animals. These dogs are household pets whose owners take time to visit hospitals, nursing homes, detention facilities, and rehabilitation facilities. Visitation dogs help people who have to be away from home due to mental or physical illness or court order. These people often miss their own pets, and a visit from a visitation animal can brighten the day, lift spirits, and help motivate them in their therapy or treatment with the goal of going home to see their own pets.
Animal Assisted Therapy Sacramento
The second type of therapy animal is called an “Animal Assisted Therapy” animal. These animals assist physical and occupational therapists in meeting goals important to a person’s recovery. Tasks that a dog can help achieve include gaining motion in limbs, fine motor control, or regaining pet care skills for caring for pets at home. Animal Assisted Therapy animal usually work in rehabilitation facilities.
Facility Therapy Sacramento
The third type of therapy animal is called a “Facility Therapy Animal”. These dogs primarily work in nursing homes and are often trained to help keep patients with Alzheimer’s disease or other mental illness from getting into trouble. They are handled by a trained member of the staff and live at the facility.
SDSA does not discriminate on the basis of veteran status, military status, race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, political ideology, religion, religious affiliation, creed, age, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, family status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, genetic information, or disability. We have to be able to teach you to handle your service dog though.
