International Assistance Dog Week (August 4-10) came and went and I didn’t have the energy to post this in time, but here it is anyway: the answers to the most frequently asked questions I get about my service dog.
Keep in mind that the answers to these questions are specific to me and my dog, the organization I work with, and the country I live in (the Netherlands). So things might not be the same for you! If you live in the US and need advice on service dogs, please contact somebody else as I have limited knowledge on how things work overseas.
- Nugget is a Golden Retriever. Her breeder is Bentivar.
- She’s in training to become an autism service dog.
- I got her when she was 7.5 weeks old. She is now almost 10 months old.
- I train her myself with the help of a service dog trainer (more on that later). We work with Stichting SAAC.
Make sure to follow Nugget on Instagram to stay up-to-date on our adventures and training progress!
