I live in the greater Kansas City area, and have not been able to find anybody anywhere close to me to help me train my new puppy. Cherise, if you wouldn't mind asking if the lady in Utah knows anybody around here, I would really appreciate it! Thanks so much!
Missrobbie, I can contact the lady who does this in Utah and ask her if there are breeders in CA that do this. If anyone else would like to know for their area let me know and I will contact her or know if she knows some place to look for info on self trainers.
I do know there is a facebook group dedicated to people who do self training or have went through it. Its actually has a lot of informative websites and information that I could post on here when I have a chance. My work schedule is a little crazy right now and I don't have a lot of time to do anything with work and my family (7 year old special needs boy and 14 month old boy plus husband keeps me pretty busy).
If you live in Phoenix ,AZ there is a non diabetic service dog program.
Happy Tails Service Dogs Training is dedicated to the education and training of a person with a disability and a dog to become a working team. All services for the students are FREE of charge.
25% of Arizonans are functionally disabled with that number increasing. Service Dogs provide a
way to mobility and connection to the outside community.
*Sorry about all the post*

I live in California but I'm looking for a dog trainer right now who will help me for free like Mary Cortani in Gilroy,Ca does for veterans. There has to be another dog trainer in California like Mary

Tip: I would tell these dog trainers about Operation Freedom & Mary Cortani. Mary Cortani is helping veterans train their own dog to become service dog for FREE. Diabetic I would contact a dog trainer in your area and see if these dog trainer can do the same for diabetic. WE NEED HELP and tell these dog trainer the TRUTH, most diabetic can't afford to pay for a DAD from an organization.

Early Alert Canines in Concord does not charge for diabetic alert dogs. There is a $100 application fee and a $100 materials fee when you attend class. The dogs are procured and trained by Early Alert Canines.
Does anyone know about Operation freedom(Gilroy ,California)?? WE NEED THIS PROGRAM FOR DIABETIC !!!!!!
Operation Freedom is a program that helps veterans train their own service dogs for FREE. Because the program is FREE, the program is very selective but we need this program for diabetic. We need Service dog trainer to help mentor. diabetic for free
Small service dogs are always getting harassed. Someone in my area has a Papillion for her hearing alert dog. Small dogs are perfect for this. She is constantly being stopped and questioned. She has the dog walking beside her, not in a bag, not in her lap, not in the buggy. But then, small lap dogs are getting snuck in everywhere. I was in the grocery store a while back and this guy had his little dog in the rolling briefcase bag. I asked him what kind of service dog was she thinking maybe she was his DAD or hearing alert dog. He said she was just a pet but he couldn't go anywhere without her because she gets so panicked when he leaves her behind. Blah blah. Wanted to deck him.
What the woman with the Papillion did was make and print out a flyer folded like a flyer and she kept it in the dog's vest. When she was questioned, she pulled it out, gave it to whoever, and kept going.
The key is to be assertive, know your rights, but yet not be rude. You were politer to that lady than I would have been so you've no problem there!
