Going into the Santa Cruz COSTCO ahead of me was a woman with a labrador dog. The dog looked like a well trained dog. The lab had a blue cover on his back. I said how nice to see well trained dogs out and about with people. She said that she has a disability and hence the dog goes with her everywhere. She got her dog through Canine Companions for Independence. 0
Anybody else out there that wants to take their well trained dogs into COSTCO and other places?
Why is it that only people with disabilities can take dogs everywhere? So long as a dog is trained why not include the dog in many more places than they usually are?
In Watsonville, California, Lance Stackhouse runs Canine Clinic. Dogs can be certified as therapy dogs and there are other certifications they can earn.
