We had a friend back home who my husband worked with. He helped us figure out what triggered Riley to retain what we were trying to teach him. He has a PPD. From what he told us. in order to be able to take his dog ANYWHERE with him or his wife, they each had to apply for a federal permit that would allow them to "escort" the dog wherever, whenever. They run you through all kinds of judgement tests, personality profile, all kinds of crap. Its almost like gaining access to top secret areas. And its pricey too. His permit alone was roughly $40,000 if i remember right. Try looking into that. But the dog also has to have all the training IN WRITING. Copies have to be carried of vet records, a copy of the permit to take the dog everywhere, copies of training certs have to be carried. Leon (our friend) actually suggested getting a harness that says "Personal protection dog" or a harness that you can attach a a little pouch to carry all that in. The dog has to be temperment tested. They have to be great with kids and everyone, including other animals too. If they so much as snap at another animal during the test, its automatic dis qual and you cant retest. one shot thats all you get. That was the requirements 6 years ago. Dont know what they are now or if you can still get the permit but i'm pretty sure you could.
