Service Dog Is A "Talker"

by Sarah

My tri color Diesel is supposed to be my service dog. She will be two years old the 25th and knows all her service chores but her socialization is horrible. Any dog or cat that ignores her will hear the wrath of her and lately she has developed her own language. My breeder says she has one other who talks in her own language but I can't have her doing either as a service dog or does she still have a lot of puppy in her? Suggestions?

Our newest family member is a talker. She will bark an order at you. My other aussies were expressive w their eyes. Not sure if its her personality or if she is still a puppy. She is 9 months now. My other two never barked until they were older & only if necessary.

Talker, too

I have a talker, too. My tri goes to the dog park every morning. All the way there he barks at everyone, car, bus. You name it. It's like he's telling them where he's going. But he's always quiet coming home.

She had to learn she can do it at home but not in public, I may have to get a trainer!
