I have a friend with MS who works with CCI dogs and puppies extensively and the amount of work that goes into training a service dog is a lot more than anyone would expect. Even an "emotional support" dog would still need a lot of training just on how to behave in public. For a family that is already strapped for resources or time, any dog (no matter how intelligent) would probably not get enough time in training to become adequate for such a task.

It is about service dogs or emotional support dogs. I made a few posts, the first one is the one that seemed to cause "trouble". The comment being "Sorry, I was just spewing the virtues of aid dog's for children with Asperger's. Of course, I was up against your friend over there. She sure has some high opinions! :wink: "
I was the "friend" she was up against, and trust me, with the following commentary, it becomes very evident just how sarcastic that "friend" reference is! Apparently she was up against me? I have high opinions?
I have read the thread a 1000 times now, and I see a bunch of people talking about it, some where a lot more strongly worded or ignorant then I was, I just don't understand... So I can't make a post now without being "uppity?"
*sigh* Everytime I come out of my shell a little, I feel like someone is ready to step on my head! I have been fairly burried from people since 2005, this is the first time I am really reaching out and talking to people in nearly two years, even if it is just online!

The only thing I was opinionated about, was someone suggested that you could "train" your own service dog, and I just said I thought that might be difficult for someone who needs a dog in the first place to help them nagivate through life!
The offending know it all post of mine is at the bottom of the first page...
