    This is a stereotype. My bulldog graduated from service dog school (which is way more intense any therapy dog program) and they told me she was a genius compared to any breed. Don't judge bullies as incapable or dumb, it's just flat out not true. Just like any species, intelligence and ability to learn depends on the individual.

    My Lily and Daisy are both in Service Animal training. Right now they are polishing their off leash skills such as backing up on command and backing up under chairs. They have mastered the basics, and are very calm and dependable in even the busiest venues such as Caesar's Casino and Forum Shops. They started their service specific training last week working on retrieve behaviors. Soon, they will be able to pick up objects and "hand" them to us. My wife and I are both disabled with back injuries, and cannot stoop or bend to pick things up off the floor. My wife is in the early stages of dementia, and hopefully it won't get much worse. But if it does, we will have Lily to stick with her, and Daisy to find her on command should she become separated from me. Service Animal training is marvelous! It creates an astoundingly wonderful bond between dog and handler. Lily already understands her roll as my wife's protector. This morning, my wife became nauseated due to chemo meds, and started dry heaving at the kitchen sink. Lily was sleeping in her beanbag, altered to the sound, jumped up and literally ran into the kitchen to stand by her side. It was truly touching!

    woah! That is amazing and beautiful all at the same time!!! I'm so happy you both have two great bullies who are taking care of their parents when they are in need! I hope all works out for the best and you both feel better soon

    Dozer is in training for both therapy and service. He is amazing and hopefully will be taking his Canine Good Citizenship test this summer, so we can get him going on the therapy. We will be working on the service aspect for a while, although he is learning to bring us the phone. I would look for a therapy dog organization, which is what I did, and they can hook you up with a trainer and probably are a trainer. I would start with looking for the organization you may want to be a part of first.
