A Great Dane can be a Service Dog? The answer, yes!
First off what is the definition of a Service Dog...
Service Dogs assist people with a disability. These special dogs are trained to do many things, including picking up dropped objects, pulling wheelchairs, predicting seizures and helping with stability for walking.
I thought all Service Dogs were Labradors & Retrievers.
While it's true these breeds make up a large number of Service Dogs
Service Dogs can come in all sizes, breeds and mix of breeds depending on what tasks are required of them.
We are very proud of a couple of our pups, Lass &
who are among the ranks of Great Danes with this job.
Lass, a lovely natural earred Merle Great Dane, is a full fledged Service Dog.
She was trained for & by her 2 legged mom, Amanda, with the assistance from the organization Leashes For Living.
You can read about Lass & her training by viewing her journal.
Fortune, a handsome natural earred Mantle Great Dane is currently in training to be a Service Dog.
He is going through the same program as his older sister, Lass. Fortune is scheduled to graduate early 2005
