LP,

From someone that has worked with SN's animals for over 20 years from Rescuing them to my extensive behavoural work to physically plus mentally rehabilitating them to training them plus new owners of those SN's that we do adopt out; there are very few places that I could/would honestly recommend that would be qualified as proper resources/support system/training places for SN's. It is an unfortunate reality......:sad:

In my program, I train via a mixture of ASL and made-up hand signals, I use light training in the turning off and on of lights ie outside in the fenced in yard to 'come in' etc.(not lasers as some dogs/breeds can be predisposed towards OCD), I use vibration training via the banging of door jambs and floors(yet not vibration collars...that is just a personal and professional preference), plus touch and scent training.

I shall always been the proud owner of at least one SN's GD for as long as I can!

Smile Ever wonder what happened to Emma

Just in case anyone ever wondered what happened to Emma, she turns 13 today. She is still much loved, slower and stiffer than she was but still enjoys her walks through the neighbourhood. Still goes 4 times a day even if they are slower and shorter than they used to be. She spent 8 years as the best therapy dog I ever had, visiting seniors, children and special adult nights a TELUS Spark through a program called PALS, bringing joy and sharing her love, a true ambassador for her breed. She shares the house and her heated dog bed, (which we got for her when getting up on our bed got to be too much for her) with 2 cats. I have a hard time making birthdays special for her because her life is filled with hugs, toys and probably too many treats everyday.
