Pets Become Workers With Private Dog Training West Allis Wisconsin

By Margaret Hill

Americans with disabilities have a need, and most certainly the right to have a service animal trained just for them. These dogs are not simply pets in the traditional sense, and cannot be treated as such by the public. However, most canines can be trained by a licensed trainer with private dog training West Allis Wisconsin, a service provided by the government.

Trainers know that the needs of an individual owner vary, and they are knowledgeable on techniques for training dogs on a number of disciplines. For some, they need a canine to pick things up for them since they are unable to reach down from their chair. Some may need a pet to guide them safely through city streets or in a restaurant or store.

Many owners are hard of hearing, and their pets are taught to alert them to important sounds. Soldiers who have had bombs go off near them, or suffer head injuries that impact their hearing may need a pet trained for this purpose. Their canine may alert them to the sound of a door ring or knock, and in public they might keep them alerted to the presence of fire trucks or ambulances.

Service animals in the public are required to wear a special jacket so they can be easily identified by the public. Many stores and restaurants do not allow pets in their establishment, but a service animal is allowed anywhere their owner needs to go. The jacket they wear identifies them so that their owner is not asked to leave in a moment of misunderstanding.

Not everyone is aware that service animals, including police dogs, are not supposed to be petted. This actually distracts a trained canine from the tasks that he or she is supposed to be providing their owner. While most service animals will not bite, it is important that people employed by retail businesses know the rules and boundaries in place for these dogs.

The Internet provided a place for some unscrupulous people to get a jacket for their pet similar to what is worn by service animals. This reflects a total lack of scruples on the part of the pet owner. They are themselves pretending to have a disability while also committing themselves to a charade as they pretend their pet is a specially trained animal.

Some laws have been passed regarding this improper identification of a pet, but no real arrests are being made in most circumstances. This is a serious problem for those who work at stores and restaurants since some people do not seem inclined to simply leave their pets at home. It shows a total lack of moral value when a person displays their untrained pets as service dogs.

Certain breeds of dogs are generally chosen for training due to their size and relative ease in being trained. Doberman pinschers and German Shepherds are very popular breeds to utilize, and police dogs are most often Shepherds. Still, with the various tasks that these animals provide, there are any number of pets who may be seen with a legitimate jacket.
