I am not a fan of the drama. Drama has taken over this community which is not good. I am especially hurt by the person who I trusted to help me train Winston in the beginning decided I was no longer worth her time. She did not give me an explanation as to why I was “kicked out” of the program. She was extremely unprofessional and blocked me on all of her accounts so I had zero contact with her. Then all I was hearing from people was her turning everyone against me, her telling people I “am breaking state and federal laws,” and how I lied about my disability. I do not condone and will not accept someone to put dirt on my name like that again. It put me in a dark place that I never thought I would get from this community. When making this instagram I always thought that I could count on everyone to help each other out, but I was wrong. It is sickening to watch hate go around like that. From now on I will no longer be involved in any drama, if you have any issue with me then you can talk to me about it instead of spreading lies. The bullying and shit talking in this community really needs to stop. We all struggle with our own problems every day and we shouldn’t have to worry about people ‘shit listing’ us on social media just because they have a lot of followers. Speaking of followers, just because somebody has a good amount of followers does NOT mean they are good people or should be looked up to. The service dog community has officially hit an all time low. I shouldn’t have to worry about what I post or who I talk to. Spread love people, lets make this community accepting again. - side note: enjoy a rare a team pic❤️

Our snow all melted this weekend and I’m HATING all of the brown! Winter come back please ❄️ - But, I’m super excited because we just planned our first getaway weekend with the dogs and it will be Cass’s first time! Do you have any travel plans over the holidays?
[werbung] Lasst uns übers Wetter reden... Ja eigentlich das wohl unspannendste Thema ever. Wenn man nix zu erzählen hat, dann redet man halt übers Wetter.. Aber eine Erwähnung ist es schon wert, dass es einfach seit 7 Tagen durchregnet. ☔️ Besonders bescheiden, wenn man noch ein paar Fotos machen möchte. Denn ja.. ein paar Kooperationspartner warten auf Bildmaterial. Ist ja eigentlich eher ein Thema worüber nicht viel gesprochen wird aber so eine Kooperation hat immer zwei Seiten. Man bekommt nicht nur mal eben ein schönes Produkt um sonst geschenkt, sondern bietet dafür auch eine Leistung. Meistens in Form von Werbung, Erfahrungsberichten und Fotos. 📸 Ich würde behaupten ich bin jemand, der recht schnell ist und immer direkt ein paar Fotos an den Partner schickt, damit er erste Resultate sehen kann. Welche Zeitspanne da die Norm ist kann ich nicht sagen aber ich mache meist schon in der ersten Woche meine Bilder und dann immer mal wieder, wenn das Produkt in Gebrauch ist. Der Winter macht es uns da allerdings wirklich nicht leicht. ☀️ Ab 16 Uhr ist das Licht aus und ständig regnet es. 😩 Also seid mal ehrlich: wie handhabt ihr das? Was ist eure Zeitspanne bei Kooperationen und wie macht ihr das mit den Fotos im Winter? ___________________________ Das schöne Set ist von @anna_leine . . . . #wildewilma#vizsla#vizslagram#vizslalove#vizslaofinstagram#weimaraner#weimaranerlove#weimaranerofinstagram#weimcrime#vizslaraner#weizsla#jagdhund#winter#adventszeit#advent#winteroutfit#winterwonderland#seelenhund#bestwoof#bestwoof10k#herzenshund#souldog#hundefotografie#hundeblog#hundeleben#hundeblick#excellet_dogs
Confidence - we’ve spent most of the past few months only going to familiar places because that’s where I could be 100% confident in Ezra and I knew how she would behave. I was really scared to take her to new stores or places Id never been to because I already have anxiety about being alone, and if something happens and she messes up or I get overwhelmed what if she can’t help me... just a million thoughts and fears from my anxiety. But what really happened was I short changed her. She’s capable of a lot more than I give her credit for, and because I pulled her back from certain PA (not including when she was sick or when I was having health problems and just couldn’t), I wasn’t exposing her to life, which means now she’s lacking confidence at times. Thing is, to be a professional at something, you have to keep practicing! You have to be adaptable and experienced. Simulating a chair falling at your house is not the same as a chair falling in a strange location. For Ezra to behave like a pro, she has to practice a lot! Now that being said, she has good PA skills and I don’t think anything she does is very noticeable to an untrained eye, but I want her to be at her best so she can help me as much as possible, which means I have to be the best handler I can be for her. I have to forget about my anxiety and put in the time even if it means mistakes. Some of us lack confidence to train because we worry that any little mistake will give the SD world a bad name. And there is a balance of safety and appropriate settings, but at the end of the day SD handlers are going to respect you more for putting in the proper training rather than holding back your dog and never giving them a chance. I found myself telling other people that but not truly living by it. That’s my own confidence exercise to work on from now on! **this photo was taken at a store. She was responsive, alerted once, she heeled perfectly even with the cart, ignored all distractions, and
