Taking care of your pet
Do you have a dog with special talents? Or does your dog have a person with special needs? Maybe you should think about getting him or her a service dog certificate. Most of us think of service dogs as German shepherds or yellow labs leading the blind, but service dogs help many disabled people navigate their daily lives with much more ease than before. You can have a service dog for any kind of disability, from anxiety to blindness to seizures. When I was in school, a classmate had a seizure service dog. As far as I know, he didn’t suffer from any seizures during the time I knew him, but if he had, his dog would have been able to see the signs before it happened.
You can get a service dog certificate for a lot of different reasons. If you have epilepsy, a service dog can “feel” a seizure coming and warn appropriate authorities or its owner. Some service dogs help with anxiety, severe stress, bipolar disorder, or high blood pressure because their personalities and training, as well as their special bond with their owner, allow them to calm their owner to manageable levels. You can even have service monkeys, cats, or other pets.
However, maybe your dog doesn’t qualify as a service dog, or maybe you don’t have a disability. You still have to find a way to take care of your dog while you’re out working or traveling. It’s a good idea to look into doggy daycare to make sure your pup is well taken care of. small dog daycare is generally reasonably priced and manageable, allowing for socialization with other dogs, playtime with people, and plenty of space to run around in. Small dog daycare is a lot like child daycare in that respect.
Whether you have a large German shepherd who’s also a service dog, or a small chihuahua whose only job is to lick your face when you get home, your canine companion plays a big role in your life. Naturally, you want to give your pets the very best, because they’re more than just friends; they’re family.
