When it comes to service dogs (not therapy dogs, not emotional support dogs, SERVICE DOGS), there needs to be an extra layer of attention paid to the professional on the other end of the leash. Service dogs allow for their handlers to have an improved and more independent life. Therefore, the professional dog trainers who are training and placing these dogs MUST be of the highest caliber.
In this podcast episode, we speak with Laura Demaio Roy, a Placement Specialist with Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and the Owner of DoggyU. Laura walks us through what service dog trainers need to keep in mind, how they should ideally hone their craft and more.
Laura is an excellent resource for all things service dog-related, is a solid dog trainer in her own right and is just an overall nice person to be around! Be sure to check out, subscribe and like Laura's YouTube channel, DoggyU.
