I don't know how this can be done, but I too would love to know the answer. One of my dogs sticks to me like glue when I'm about to pass out; she knows about 30 minutes before it happens. It has made it possible for me to take much longer walks without worrying about passing out in the middle of the street or dropping the dog leashes and losing them when I pass out. I'd love to take her to stores, etc. in order to gauge when I've done enough.
Try one of these organizations. They may be able to help or at least point you in the right direction:
Delta Society, Therapy Dogs International, or Therapy Dogs Incorporated
I'm sorry...being a Brit, I can't help you with info., but I would just like to say your dog is an absolute GUARDIAN ANGEL! Reading this actually brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful dog you have!
Amazing dog! That is definitely grounds for licencing. Sorry I dont know more about it. Also Im in Canada so it doesnt help anyway.
Hi, My dog Kobuk was my therapy dog, I suffer from depression and anxiety. I had my doctor write a letter and a friend had an extra "jacket" that said service dog and a space for the letter go in it. I can even fly with him by me on the plane. He is 14 now and is cataracts but he still barks if I'm talking too long so someone and he knows that I'm starting to get anxious. Hope this helps.
Thank you. The dog in the profile pic is the one I'm referring to. She is also a pound puppy which when she chose us, we got her a day or two before they were going to put her down (she'd been there too long-3-1/2 mos.).
She has my heart.
