Its not really a log, log just rhymed. Maybe it’s a metaphorical tree log. I’m looking for a prospect. I live in America so my journey will be in accordance to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). At this point in my journey, I’ve decided on a Smooth Coated Collie (though both potential sires are Rough Coated so if the best temperament ends up a rough I will choose accordingly and groom often). Originally, I had considered Golden’s, Labs, and Poodles - however after getting to know this breeder, her dogs, their temperaments, her Service Dog program, and because she is a fantastic breeder and person, I have decided to pick from a litter by her later this year. She will be breeding a smoothie (dam) with one of two roughs. Once I know who the sire will be, I’ll post pictures of him, but her pictures will be in my following post. She gave me an estimate for breeding in 4-5 months. From there it will be 2 and a half months ( I believe ) before I get to bring them home. Needless to say there’s no hurry, my focus is a solid temperament. I just made this thread because it’s fun, exciting, and service training is a passion of mine. If anyone else wants to talk about service dogs, I’m always ready - post away! It’d be interesting to hear about service dogs in the UK and your general opinions on them.
