Very cool you'll be getting a custom harness. Since Flip's is strictly for identification purposes, I got an inexpensive one with a few patches. I find it interesting that whenever I put it on him he curls up and just hangs out next to me instead of running around the house like an idiot. I thought service dog's acted differently when wearing their vests because of training, but apparently the vest itself has some calming effects.

Tito should be a great service dog to add to all of his accomplishments. My heart goes out to all of you living with painful diseases, yet accomplishing so much with your dogs.

Tito sounds like the perfect canidit for you. The harness sounds like it is going to be very nice! Be sure to post a picture of Tito with it! I just finished reading the book Until Tuesday. My mind is thinking golden service dogs right now!

Thanks Janice. It's why I don't run him myself in agility, I run like a wounded hippo. Well maybe slower than a wounded hippo. I do the obedience and field myself, but not the agility nor the breed ring. Those require a handler who can move.

We were at Bass Pro Shops earlier this week. As Tito was carrying my 3 bags (no, they weren't heavy) I thought, "hey, this is going to work out just fine!". Although it's hard to make progress thru the store with everyone stopping to comment on him having so much in his mouth!

Barb, I know that Tito is probably more than happy to assist you. He is perfect for that "job."

Sorry, can't help but chuckle about the wounded hippo comment! And by the way, does he still wear that cape that you made for his dock diving?

Hey Mary, great to see you!
No, he refuses to wear the cape. Toby wore it for a while before I lost him, it kept him nice and warm. But Tito refuses to move if he has it on!

Hey my Allie girl is a service dog because of my brain surgeries that were so close to my brain stem - it has impacted my balance. That's why we are getting a year old female to start Allie 'training' her with her good manners and calm demeanor.
I wish you the best - Goldens I think make great service dogs. Allie knows when I'm hurting more and will be by my side. She helps me with balance issues which a big thing for me - I have a leather harness if you want it -I'll send it to you - it really wasn't my need - I've been trying to find a good home for it and haven't had any responses.
Allie is 72 pounds and the leather harness is adjustable. If you want it please let me know - I didn't read all the posts so if this isn't something you want please disregard.

Hi Allie's mom, thanks for the offer. We have a nice, custom made harness and it's perfect for mobility assist. But thanks!
Tanya, that's wonderful. I'm still chicken to take him a lot of places, but I have been taking him to places that I know are dog friendly anyway, and to some hardware stores etc. He's a perfect gentleman, but it's amazing how many people come up and ask me, "what is he trained to do??". They mean well....
