What's the difference between a service dog prospect and a service dog in training? Legally, absolutely nothing. The federal law only covers fully trained service dogs and the state law occasionally covers service dogs in training. Different handlers use the word "prospect" to mean different things. Some say it's a dog who hasn't started training yet (which I find odd because training should begin very young even if it's just simple sit and stay) and some call their dog a prospect when they're in the beginning of training. In my not so humble opinion, the term "propsect" is just another excuse for other handlers to police and judge each other. "Oh she's a prospect she can't be doing PA!" or "He's a puppy he's a prospect not a SDiT!". If your dog has begun the service dog training process, it is a service dog in training. A prospect, if you insist on using the term, should be while you are testing the dog and trying to pick one. Once you decide on the dog and start training, it's a SDiT by law. Age does not matter. I just don't feel the term "prospect" is quite necessary because if the dog hasn't begun the training process, he's not any type of service dog under any law so he doesn't have a label yet. Keep things simple. There's enough confusion about service dogs as is.

Pupdate! Our breeder sent us new pics of Severus! He turns 9 weeks old in 8 days and will be coming home after that point! I'm so excited but a little nervous since he's my first small dog! My best friend just got her SDiT though and she's a Chi so I got a little test run of working a small dog when we went on an outing, and I enjoyed it! I'm still open to any tips from experienced small SD handlers though!

Uiminen on kivaa! Sen on todistaneet sekä meidän pennut että sorsaperhe. Vihdoin minäkin siis (arkajalka) jätin talviturkin taakseni. En tosin luullut, että saan "soturiarpia" siinä sivussa. Kylo innostui hyppäämään laiturilta uimakaveriksi ja epähuomiossa löi tassulla naamaan. Hetkenhän siinä kasvot kihelmöi ja vähän tuli verenmakua, kun kynsi osui huulen sisäpintaan (miten ihmeessä - en tiedä). Kuitenkin loppu hyvin, kaikki hyvin. Oli huikean ihana ilta mökkirannassa!!
(3.kuvan ankannaamailme siksi, että yritin saada huulen osuman näkyviin! Don't judge me xD)

I got to visit baby Severus today! He's PERFECT! We got first pick male thank God and he's so awesome! He's only 5 weeks old so I can't see his true temperament yet but he's already extremely outgoing and aware! He's super brave too and I got to see him run around with his parents too who are great! His mom is crazy friendly and his dad is super chill! I'm overall really satisfied and looking forward to bringing little Snape home💕
