💡Tuesday Tip 💡
New Dog or Skittish Dog in The Home 🏡

🦮 Keep your dog from running out an open door. 🚪
Install Gates as a barrier around doors to prevent your dog escaping an open door.

🐕‍🦺 Keep your dogs leashed inside the home so someone can hold the leash as people exit the home.

⚠️ Please be proactive to make sure your dog is safe and secure in the home.

Work on training your new dog to sit and stay before anybody enters or leaves the home. Train them to have great recall.

Please keep your dogs leashed at all times. They are depending on you.

Therapy dogs and emotional support pets are NOT service dogs!
26/11/2023

Therapy dogs and emotional support pets are NOT service dogs!

Service dogs.
Probably one of the most unpopular topics for any pet dog trainer.
I cannot begin to count the amount of service dog training requests I receive.
“Can your online courses train my dog to be a service dog?”
“I need to make my dog a service dog so he can ride on the bus with me” (Yes, someone seriously asked me this)
“Do you certify service dogs?”
No - no - no - and more no.
Service dog training is completely different from pet dog training.
If your dog is trained to walk nicely on a leash and sit and stay, they are a pet dog.
If your dog comes up to you and nuzzles you when you are sad - they are still a pet dog.
If you want your dog to accompany you into stores or fly in-cabin on planes … they’re still only a pet dog and these privileges are not for them.
Service dogs are task-trained.
They are specifically taught to work for people with disabilities.
A dog that solely provides comfort is not a service dog.
I see a lot of people acquiring dogs, labeling them as “my service dog” and *then* going about training them.
This is not how that works.
You cannot just select a dog, put a service dog harness on them and figure the rest out as you go.
We regularly receive requests from dog owners who tell us that their “service dog” pulled them over on leash or nips at visitors.
That their service dog relentlessly chases wildlife on walks or has intense anxiety in social settings.
One time I got a request from a lady who told me that she got a dog from the shelter to be her son’s service dog, but that “service dog” was now biting the son and could I please fix it.
I’m sorry - none of those dogs are not service dogs then. And they likely won’t be service dogs in the future either.
Please be honest about the dog you own.
Unless you worked diligently to train them as a service animal with specific tasks, they are a pet.
A beloved, (hopefully) well-behaved, wonderful pet.
But not a working dog, and you should not demand the privileges that are reserved for true service dogs and their disabled handlers.
Staying clear with this distinction protects the actual service dogs and their owners 🙂

Many have asked why licensed RVS (Rabies Vector Species) rehabbers will not help adult raccoons, skunks or foxes! It is not that we don't want to; we are unable to!

When a baby raccoon, skunk or fox are found, they are scared, hungry and perhaps sick or injured. They don't fear for their lives when they see a human. We are able to handle them! If we get them a little older, they are a bit more wild but strength wise, we still can handle them with caution!

Adult raccoons may trust you to take food from your hands (not a wise move!) but if you get bit...there are many diseases you can get ....not just rabies! An injured, sick and cornered/trapped raccoon will fight for its life! It will not just take a bite but it will bite over and over while its four set of knives (oops meant claws) will shred your arms, legs or stomach....anything it can reach! An adult raccoon will see you a life threat, a predator!

Not only that but an adult can not be mixed in with the babies! The babies may get killed! Then there is the chance the adult raccoon may be sick and you don't want your healthy ones to catch a deadly disease! If the outdoor enclosure is exposed to parvo or other parasitic diseases, it has to be decontaminated...expensive and the enclosure may not be in use for a couple of years! Each enclosure costs several hours and lots of time to build!

Please remember we are volunteers! We need to be healthy to work our paying jobs so we can spend our "extra" money for rehabbing instead of vacations, luxuries, etc! We need to be healthy to rehab the babies that are counting for us!

DEEP (Department of Energy and Environmental Protection) does not allow a licensed RVS rehabber to rehab adult raccoons, skunks and foxes. Even though we are only volunteers for the State of CT, if we do not follow their rules, we can lose our license to rehab. Every time we lose a rehabber no matter the reason, one person less to save babies' lives!

If you do find an adult raccoon, skunk or fox that is injured or sick, please do not handle! Not all symptoms mean rabies! Give us a call at 8602244314 and we will help you handle it correctly.

If it is a baby raccoon or skunk that is injured/sick or abandoned/orphaned, please contain it in a carrier, box, or bin using gloves, a towel, etc! NEVER bare hands!!! Contact a rehabber!

Skunks: https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/Wildlife/Rehabilitator/Animals-in-Distress/Skunks-in-Distress

It is rare to find fox kits! When something happens to one parent, the babies still have the other parent! Both parents are great parents but if the babies DO NOT have parents, please contain using protection (gloves, towels, etc) and contact rehabbers!

Foxes: https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/Wildlife/Rehabilitator/Animals-in-Distress/Foxes-in-Distress

If in doubt of age or issue, call a rehabber!

Update: Barnabis is home safe and sound after 7 days on the run!! He was spotted in a yard in West Cornwall and went right to his owners when they got there! ❤️🐾

Barnabis went missing from his Music Mountain home on Wednesday August 30th around 11:20am. The only collar he had on was a training collar. He has one faint white spot on his chest and he's around 1 1/2 years old. He is skittish towards new people and other dogs. Please call Animal Control Officer Lindsay Burr at 860-480-7568 if he is spotted with exact time and general location.
