I asked before (Jul 30) but got no answer so am trying again.

What kind of service dog is Gracie? What does she do? How did you get her certified?

Thanks

Hello -

Actually, I sent you a private email answering your question. Gracie is a service dog for a medical condition. She was trained and certified by a company that specializes in service dogs in northern California. I had to have a doctor's order to get her certified. Dogs are now certified to assist with a LOT of medical conditions - not just blindness.

For more information, check out this website:

I was interested too.... But perhaps you do not want to share specifics.... That is also fine.

Dogs can be certified in many areas and are particularly helpful for sensory-impaired ppl and many with seizure disorders. The list has grown in recent years in terms of the medical conditions with which they can assist and I am glad that smaller dogs are now being included in the training. I am even more impressed that a 'rescued dog' has joined their very impressive ranks... Quite frankly, I think it speaks to the therapeutic nurturance with which she (?) has been provided...

Thanks for the photo...Again, one VERY sweet-looking pup....
