Today was a great day at the workshop. Jasmine was absolutely on point and even demoed by request from Kyra Sundance
Jasmine had a blast and I sure learned a lot. I am now certified as a Canine Conditioning Coach (among other things previously). We also finally applied for Jasmine's intermediate, advanced and expert trick dog titles! While Zero got his novice, intermediate and advanced. Jasmine is currently working on her championship title
We also bought a bunch of new equipment (and still getting more), so we're gonna have a lot of fitness work going on soon
I'm also super psyched because if I end up going into the world of animal actors and Hollywood (which is a goal of mine among others), I have my referrals secured #canineconditioningworkshop
Pictured is Jasmine the shepherd mix. She is sitting on top of an assembly of pedestals looking at the camera. Rows of crates lay in the background

Strange photo, but I just did something HUGE! (For me at least!) I'm at the grocery store, waiting in my car while my sweet girlfriend shops for me, and there was a service dog team walking by my car, trying to . He did his business, and then they left!! Didn't pick it up, just LEFT IT. Oh this makes me upset, because I don't want Stella sniffing at it, or me to step in it. PLUS, it just plain rude. So I watched them leave and actually stopped reading my book so I could watch for them to get back.
For those of you that don't know me, I may act tough, but inside I'm not. I hate confrontation, and it makes my anxiety crazy. So they are coming back, and I quickly open my door and say "excuse me!" They come over and I said, "hey, do you need a dog bag? Your dog pooped and you didn't pick it up." He responds sorta guilty, "I would love a dog bag. I normally have them in his vest." I proceeded to give I'm one and say "I understand cause I have a service dog too". He said thank you and I thanked him too for picking it up.
I got back in my car and I am shaking. Legit SHAKING. I feel like I'm going to pass out, so Stella quickly puts her paws on my shoulder and does DPT.
Thank you Stella for being there for me, and supporting me!! I'm so proud that I did that! Huge step for me!! Anyway. Heres back to my book! #sdit#servicedog#servicepuppy#servicedogteam#servicedoggear#spoonie#PTSD#anxiety#pots#posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome#potsie#eds#ehlersdanlos#ehlersdanlossyndrome#chronicpain#chronicfatigue#chronicillness#psychiatricservicedog#mobilityservicedog
Today I made, with the help of Abby, a specific harness for Pippi's guide handle!! It's simple but supportive. Very thick and comfortable fabric that doesn't irratate her skin. I used a button on top instead of a buckle on the bottom bc I hate leaning under her and buckles make noise when she scratches her belly. I am super pleased with the way it came out and cannot wait to start training with it.
