Our work at Dog Wish is primarily concerned with training our dogs to detect and blk-fe-2respond to the brains of their handlers, detecting, responding to, and helping them to rectify neurological problems they suffer through on a daily, or hourly basis.

This last year we have experienced:

  • unparalleled complete success with individuals disordered by Developmental Disabilities,
  • Completely stopped Seizures in clients,
  • Resolved PTSD, Bi-Polar, Anxiety, Depression, Severe Migraine, and other like disorders in clients,
  • Have actual, documented, PREGRESSION, in several clients disordered by Alzheimer’s?!
  • And other incredible feats, never accomplished before by any school of dog training, ANYWHERE.

DOG WISH

Dog Wish started off almost 40 years ago, working with those a complete variety of dogwishlogodisabilities, from clients who called us, organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and then in 1999 with individuals disordered by Developmental Disabilities; Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Down Syndrome.  We then started working with those disordered with Epilepsy, and Seizures, creating the first pre-alert Seizure K9s and Service Dogs.  We then branched out to work with those affected by Anxiety, PTSD, Bi-Polar, etc. typed disorders, and then on working with those affected by Traumatic Brain Injuries, actual Brain diseases, and Medically caused disorders.  In all we have placed thousands of dogs for those with neurological disabilities and disorders.

THE PROBLEM

Many of the world’s leading Bio-Scientific Experts believe that man, as a species of animal life, is experiencing a tremendous evolvement, at the present time.  To complicate this, or maybe as a result, our artificial exploding world of electronic and medical technology is causing critical problems for everyone on this planet, and some of the world’s leading biologists believe that man, as an animal species, was never meant to handle the problems, created by environment, and living conditions, as promoted by our world of artificial technologies, medications and, international communication abilities.

  • 1 in 5 people are now suffering critical anxiety problems
  • 1 in 10 are being born with a developmental disability
  • 1 in 3 people are dealing with a brain oriented disability

 

DOG WISH RESPONDS

Our dog training has and is designed completely as a response to the critical and Bob Taylor, Founderdemanding needs of our clients.  The methods we use are administered in a sensitive, but competent manner, individually, with each dog we train.

We have created a strategic and comprehensive breeding, whelping, raising, and training program, using a breed of dog we have created specifically designed to handle our client needs in a far SUPERIOR way:

  • We have found and use dogs with SUPERIOR genetics and training, to pass these on to our pups
  • We then do raise and train ALL our dogs, now used for our clients.

 

THE EFFECT OF OUR TRAINING ON THE BRAINS OF OUR DOGS AND CLIENTS

Even though all dog training does have an effect on the brain of the dog who is being MAX2NISAtrained, by using our educated, knowledgeable, enhanced training concepts,

  • We can maximize that change, from 100% to 500%, or 600% or more, according to the genetics in each individual dog.
  • We can produce mental clarity, and enhanced ability to detect, receive, and communicate, through our training.

As we train our Service Dogs, we need to understand what is happening “inside” of the Service Dogs’ brain.   I consistently remind my trainers that what they are doing will actually become a physical part of the brain of your Service Dog.  Every repeated emotion, thought, and response you show your Service Dog, over a 21-day period, will become a physical part of that Service Dog.

BRAINWAVES

Using the right side of your brain produces “Theta” brainwaves, whereas using the leftBRAIN ART side of your brain produces “Alpha” brainwaves.  Service Dogs use the right side of their brains to respond to what is going on around them.

  • The right side of the brain is often referred to as your “subconscious” mind, because it operates without your conscious mind (left-side) dictating how it should perform.
  • Your brain’s computer, your hypothalamus, takes information stored in the right side of your brain to construct behaviors.
  • Your hypothalamus works on memory, drawing from events stored in the right side of your brain to construct messages sent to your body.  These emotions are simulations of past behaviors, that trigger present emotions in your body.
  • Your hypothalamus therefore, constructs a learned formula that it learned in the past, and uses it to produce present emotions in your body.
  • We strive to imprint in each dog the abilities, qualities, and trained responsiveness, that will enable them to become the naturally responsponding animal, their handler needs, to that they will respond to their handlers naturally, without the need for artificial commands and directions, and become a natural detection and response mechanism, who works for the benefit and safety of their handler, at all times.

Your Service dog responds based on the smells and energies projected to it byMAX n DONNA 2 your brain and body, in a natural fashion.

  • Service Dogs respond according to their feelings, more than they do to a rational, artificial, thought pattern.  Those feelings are what connect them to the world around them.
  • Many times those feelings come from a deeper, stronger, sub-conscious awareness, and are connected to many sensory sources of stored information and knowledge that we don’t even understand.
  •  Through our training Dog Wish introduces our dogs to the rational world of logic and cognitive reasoning, and teaches each Service Dog how to understand and use their brain’s left sided functions.

THE RIGHT BRAIN

Our brain processes some 32,700 thoughts a day.  The left side can only hold some SPENCER300.  The rest are left catalogued in your right brain, which stores them for you, and uses them to build your behaviors.

  • The left side of your brain holds about 38 megabytes of memory.
  • The right side of your brain has enough memory to contain the history of the universe.
  • We now know that the brains of those with developmental disabilities, and those with brain injuries, brain aneurisms, seizures, etc., re-wire themselves, so that their bearer functions, to different extents, “right-brained”.
  • We also have realized that many of the world’s most brilliant geniuses were right-brained.
  • Therefore, the more we can tap into the great depths contained in the right side of our brains, the more intelligent and profitable our thoughts will be.

THE SUPRESSION OF OUR RIGHT BRAIN

Our species has determined that Alpha brainwaves are masculine, and Theta brainwaves are feminine, and we literally suppress the use of the right side of the brain as inferior.  Instead we strongly condition our children, using the school systems, and demand left brain activity and responses.  Our communication and our education are based on Alpha activity.  Our views on Science and Religion, Politics, and Society are all left brained.  Therefore, our ability to understand and use our right-brained activity is greatly restrained, under-developed, and socially restricted.

Yet, some the greatest artists, scientists, and historical figures used right brained technology to succeed.  Their work has led them to a higher, superior level of consciousness than their “peers”.

If you want an example we can look at the great Albert Einstein, who was almost dismissed from his schooling in Germany and handed a broom, to clean up after his superiors.  Four years later this young man with Asperger’s Syndrome shocked the world with his “Theory of Relativity”.  After his death careful examination found that his brain was actually smaller than normal, but had twice as many neural synapse passages, meaning that his ability to send messages from his left, to his right brain, was at least twice that of the “normal” male human being, (actually women have brains constructed in this fashion as well, which is a good reason for why women make better dog handlers that men do).

The material stored in the right side of your brain is uncensored, pure, natural information.  What we do with our left brained activities is to take that information and modify it to fit our conscious (right brained) perspective.  In doing so we change it, so that it will fit into the categories of knowledge we can accept and use, the way we want.  Our left brain controls the way we perceive and respond to the world around us.

OUR TRAINING

I have developed a complete set of highly evolved exercises.  These exercises use a WILD BOB & ARGUSpositive approach that teaches Service Dogs to use their left brain, as well as their right,

  • expand their consciousness,
  • and increase their ability to communicate with humans.

We have found a process that stimulates the “Purkinge Axiom”, (the extension of the central nervous system, located in every cell in the brain).

  • This process wakes up their conscious mind,
  • and teaches them to receive and process communication dynamically with us, on our level.

This isn’t that hard, as our brain is harder to stimulate,

  • works slower than the dogs’ brain does,
  • and is clumsier in its’ ability to receive and store information than the dogs’ brain,
  • because we have altered the process the brain uses through our left brain activity,
  • and grown lazy through the development of artificial technology that makes life easier for us every day.
  • This process is not natural, but artificial, and the more we use it, the more we decrease the potential of our brain and body to perform and function.

CO-CREATION

NOTE: Through the training I have designed you can actually co-create, in both you and your Service dog, the capacity and ability for new neural responsiveness, changing both your ability and the ability of your dogs’ brain to understand and respond to mental stimulation, and to produce a superior capability for brain functioning.

At Dog Wish, not only do we use a highly comprehensive process of evaluation, but often there are capability’s that a Service Dog just doesn’t have, because of their genetics, that we have to literally create WITH themLearning how to “co-create” potential mental capabilities expands our abilities to use each Service Dog.

  • Through this process we physically re-program your dogs’ behaviors to a great extent.
  • Likewise, because my training is based on the use of your right brain, the more you use it, the healthier and more intelligent you will become and function as well.

*However, the most important fact here is that in so doing we alter the physical formation, usability, and performance capability of the brain!

SERVICE DOG SURGERY

Our training actually creates physical changes in the brain of every Service Dog we workSAM22 with.   What we are doing here is unique, it happens to our dogs as they are instructed and conditioned to perform.

  • The fact that because we are so aware of this process, and that we understand “one-step-at-a-time” what is happening in the Service Dogs’ brain as we train with them,
  • means we can stop, focus, receive input from the dog,
  • and do a better job of communicating exactly what we want,
  • on the specific level where each Service Dog is,
  • the exact way they need that communication.

I call this process “Service Dog Surgery”.

  • This increases clarity of mind,
  • relieves stress,
  • helps the dog to understand faster, better,
  • to therefore respond more intelligently and problem free.
  • Does the same thing for the handler that it does for the dog

Understand that, instead, by teaching your dog to instead use “left brained training processes” like other trainers use, and to communicate with us, that way,

  • you will be altering the dogs’ mentality, lifestyle, and shortening its’ life,
  • (because now your dog will have to deal with the mental stresses we deal with, which are killing us.)

*At the same time, I use methods for handling and training that force you, as their human counter-parts to use your right brain to develop an ability to understand and respond to the dogs.

  • The results are that both entities begin to respond in a “team”-like manner,
  • To appreciate, respect, and respond to each other, in co-creation
  • By meeting in the middle of their right and left-brain’s levels of activities.

This process greatly increases communication, sensitivity, and cooperation MATT N BOWSERbetween both parties.  As a result, if followed properly,

  • Both the trainer and the dog can reach a state of consciousness that is unique.
  • The Buddhists call this the application of Zen, and believe it is the key to mental and spiritual enrichment.
  • This basically, is the key to connect ability with all life, and on all levels.

At Dog Wish, our entire training program is a right brained process, from beginning to end.

  • It is based on feeling and experiencing through energy,
  • and not a rational based, non-feeling, analytical understanding.

There is nothing artificial that left-brain euphemists can use to destroy the experience for those endeavoring to find connection and understanding in a natural setting, with natural tools, and results.  Those who endeavor to short cut, legislate, or infuse the experience with their left-brained, mentally toxic, self-absorbed poisons, will be found out in left field.

     We’ve gone right!

People affected with Autism, Dementia, TBI, OTSD, etc., and other neurological disabilities become overwhelmed trying to understand and either re-produce, or produce left brained mental scenarios and functions, so a right-brained philosophy and technology is absolutely imperative in their learning process.

We watch them come to Dog Wish, frustrated and anxious, tired of others around them that can’t understand them, feeling separation and isolation, and needing to feel whole, healthy, and connected.  For the most part they find that connectedness through their dog.  Then, in a short period of time, work, and a committed effort to learn this process, they literally change their brain’s functionality, and their lives.

We teach our dogs to learn to work with their handler as a team, and family.  They learn to watch the handler for signs of what that person wants them to do.  They learn to be sensitive to the desires of that handler, and to respond instantly as the handler communicates his or her needs.

We teach our dogs to be sensitive to the energies and smells in and around their handler, to feel the handler, and to tune in deeply and sensitively with the handler from the very first day of training on.  It is one of the most important things we teach our dogs to do.  Also, as you can read in my books, published on Amazon.com, in their kindle section, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of the dogs’ thought and learning processes.  By using the methods that we use at Dog Wish, you can gain the ability to understand, connect with, and control the thought patterns your dog uses to receive, process, and behave.

One major area of success in our training is that I have learned how, and created methods designed to “invert” the normal sensory process used by dogs, teaching them to focus, tune-in, observe, and respond to their human counterparts, instead of the other animal and earth oriented activities around them.  I have found that the ability to focus produces a major part of our success.

  • We endeavor to teach our dogs to focus 100% on their handler for several minutes at a time.

EXPANDING OUR DOG’S ABILITIES TO DETECT AND RESPOND TO THEIR ZOEY TRACKING 1HANDLERS

Another area of success comes from the fact that as a Multi-National Master Tracking

Dog Champion and Expert I have developed the ability to teach a dog to use its’ olfactory sense of “scent discrimination” to its’ highest potential, (up to 2 million times that of the normal human), and as I do I expand the dog’s ability to detect and react numerous times what it would otherwise be, to neurological happenstance in their human counter-part.

Another area of success comes from my LAPD field training.  If dogs can be held bob-herosresponsible for detecting specific scents, as done in AKC obedience trials, why can’t they be held accountable for detecting images projected to them, and specific thought patterns presented to them?  They can.  You just have to figure out how to test and instruct them.  When a dog realizes that I know what they are thinking, and that I am going to work with them accordingly, and instruct them based on what I know, their behavior changes completely.  They begin to stop and look to see if I am tuned in.

When they realize I do know that they are thinking, it’s amazing how correct and accurate they become in training.  They actually start asking questions, checking to make sure what they want is OK with me, and watching me to make sure I agree with them.   Being “brainwave sensitive” is the only way they can make it through training.  The results, as mentioned above, are miraculous!

Many of my clients make jokes about their dogs acting, “human”.  I ask them not to insult the dogs.  This is also why the methods and principles I use in training are so effective.  It produces behavior in our dogs that is beyond human, sometimes way beyond human.

What we have found is that a dog’s brain is not inferior to their human counter-part.  With proper conditioning, dogs are capable of working on the same level as we are, and sometimes far more.

FLUFFY                                                       

Fluffy was a beautiful, long haired German Shepherd, who was bred from parents with SOC 2top qualifying Police and Schutzhund titled backgrounds.  The rest of the litter were real working dog puppies, and she was the one-dog-in-the-litter who was kind hearted, sweet natured, and had to be rescued from them, before their aggressive behavior could modify her ability to, through training, to become the real working dog they all do become.

Several in that litter mellowed out and became excellent Service Dogs, but at 10 to 14 weeks they were little “terrors”.  We kept Fluffy with a very nice male lab who loved her, and she grew up happy.  In her training. However, Fluffy remembered how traumatized she was as a young pup, and associated it to the work we wanted her to do.  She refused to stay, refused to leave your side, would sit and shake and hated doing work that required her to assert herself.

I realized that if we were going to be successful with her, we would have to change her mental processes, her emotional associations, and help her to overcome her dilemmas.   I introduced Fluffy to my daughter Amanda, who became her primary handler in training.  Amanda identified with Fluffy, and they formed a good bond.  By daily conditioning her with Amanda, putting her through exercises together with Amanda, and helping her to gain confidence and feel power over her abilities to respond and perform, she learned her lessons, and became a superior Service Dog.  Fluffy then saved the life of her handlers, (we found the necessity to train her for thee different handlers), several times, and now is Nationally famous.

It was the training that made all the difference.cropped-dogwish-logo_edited-2.jpg

Knowing how to work with the brains in all our dogs, and their handlers, is the greatest insurance we have in our training.

THE DOG WISH EXPERIENCE

By BOB TAYLOR, President,

The Dog Wish, Incorporated

760-662-3767

NOTE:  I have letters of testimonial that will document and prove every point I make in this blog.

 

Our Psychiatric Service Dogs have become a major cause for problem resolution inscott-and-buster hundreds of client/handler/owners. By connecting with one of our Certified Psychiatric Service Dogs, these lucky people have transformed their lives, loosing major disabling problems, and learning to live enabled, empowered, functioning lives.

We all have problems. It seems to be the fundamental nature of life in our universe. What do we do with our problems? By connecting to the fields of:

  • medicine and pharmacology,
  • psychiatry and psychology and therapy,
  • science
  • and religion,

You can learn all about your problems. You can learn:meld down

  • where your problems come from,
  • how your problems exist,
  • how to deal with your problems,
  • how to control your problems,
  • and how to function with your problems.

But, what you learn at Dog Wish can change your life forever, and teach you how get rid of your problems, because we supply and teach you how to use, your ANSWERS!

 

Congratulations!

 

 

But, what can you do to resolve your problems?

I don’t want to:

  • learn about, know more about,
  • understand my problems more,
  • exist with, • control, or function better with or around, or through my problems.

 BOBBY

                             I want to get rid of my problems!

In order to get rid of your problems, you need an “answer”.

At Dog Wish, we have interconnected the world’s most rewarding and successful strategies, techniques, and life changing philosophies, and adapted them into our answers! We use the answers to train our dogs, and teach them to our clients.

 

WHY DOG WISH WORKS BETTER

I train dogs for people who are disabled by:

  • mental,
  • emotional,
  • and physiological problems

that have altered their abilities to function, and caused great and critical trauma for them.

These people have been to doctors, psyches, etc., and all heard the same reply to their questions. They have taken all the meds, many have tried to drown their problems in alcohol and drugs.  They come here convinced that there is NO ANSWER to their problem, and are hoping I can help them deal with their problems in a better, more successful way. When they instantly come face to face with living answers, they are simply blown away.

blk-fe-2

So, what are answers?                            

Answers are:

  • simple,
  • easy,
  • natural truths that work.

that’s why we call them answers.

There’s no such thing as a hard answer. An answer is easy. It has to be, to be an answer. Otherwise, it would become a problem.

The answers, when put into place, interconnect to quickly produce:

  • Denise & Ladypeace,
  • harmony,
  • ease of stress,
  • enjoyment,
  • relaxation,
  • love,
  • and joy.

I love the answers!

Dog Wish is better because Dog Wish uses the answers.

The reason you will love your dog is because we used the answers to train them, so, when your dog performs, you will see and feel, experiencing the answers.

  • At Dog Wish we don’t deal with problems, we deal with answers! The answers deal with the problems.

So, while we are spending our time learning about, creating, and developing the answer, the problem goes away. The stronger the answer evolves, the weaker the problem becomes. Finally, as we use the answer, the problem is obliterated, so, when we turn to deal with it, it isn’t there.

 

So, what if there were no problems? There would only be answers!THE COWBOY

A lot of people live with their problems because no one ever showed them the answers, and how to use them. One of the most exciting and enjoyable experiences you will ever have happens when you connect these people to the answers. It’s like an explosion.  It was there all along, but they didn’t know it.  Now, suddenly, it is as visible to them as black and white.  Many literally walk off, never looking back, and leave their problems lying in the dirt!

 

Now, I realize that some people thrive on problems.  They need problems, so that they won’t have to deal with the answers.  They want problems so that they can pretend there aren’t answers.  When these people realize that our answers are greater than their problems, they simply go away.  All that is left are people with answers, who are happy, content, and satisfied.  Isn’t that one of your greatest goals in life?  If it is, Dog Wish is for you! The following is a list of some of the answers you will find at Dog Wish.

 

ANSWER 1: INTENTIONS – The original answer!RADAR 3

Experience – Emotions – Intentions – Decisions – Actions

I build behaviors. I came to realize years ago that trying to change someone’s problem behaviors is futile. The more energy you put into that endeavor, the stronger the problem behavior becomes. The only way to get rid of a problem with a dog is to recreate another behavior that the dog chooses and uses to replace it! The way to do that is to go through a Dog Wish Intention Redevelopment Program.

You have to:

  • go through a new experience,
  • feel the energy and emotion of that experience,
  • create a new intention, designed to fulfill the needs of the dog that can bring rectification and resolution,
  • and fortify that intention until the dog can make a DECISION to act, based on that intention.
  • The new intention gives the dog the ability to meet its needs and desires with behaviors that at the same time meet the needs of their handler. At Dog Wish we do the same thing for you.

Intentions are the foundational behavioral process that ALL behaviors come from. Through understanding and use of the dog’s Intention Process we are able to design and focus the way your dog perceives, understands, and reacts The creation and development of an INTENTION is the key to building all behavior.

  • First of all, Intentions are primarily a “stress release” mechanism that works naturally within your brain.
  • Intentions are designed as the ANSWER to all the problems of behavior.
  • Actions are actually post-thought, not even included IN the thought process. They are only a result OF the thought process.
  • Therefore, trying to change actions is like concentrating on the problem. The answer is always found in the creation and development of an intention!

Learning to utilize the power of your intentions:

  • to focus (past in present),
  • overcome (present),
  • and become (future)

as YOU desire, is one of life’s greatest gifts!  It is the answer to a myriad of problems, and at Dog Wish we are experts at helping others to create, strengthen, and use their intention building skills, to live fun, exciting, rewarding lives.

 

ANSWER 2: ENERGY – The power of life!sun

We are beings of energy. We have 7 specific energy portals throughout our bodies. Each portal has a distinct purpose and reason for being. Your dog is built the same way. These energy portals are a very important part of who you are. The way you use each of these portals to connect with the energies within and around you completely influences and dictates how you think and feel.

PHOTONS: the physiological foundation for energy

The smallest particle of matter in the Universe is a Photon, (scientists call them strings).  There is nothing smaller, or simpler. Everything that exists is comprised of gazillions and gazillions of Photons.  The amazing thing about Photons is, they are ALIVE, they can sense you focusing on them, the receive your energy, ingest, process, respond, and dispose.  When two photons meet, if they like each other they can exchange particles, and become one.  The air is compacted full of photons, they are what you breath in, supply oxygen to your brain, and fill you with life!  You can concentrate on, and receive and project energy using them, and feel energy because of them.

(You, in your mother’s womb, through the power of your own mental intentions, formed a body using these minute particles of energy, according to your genetic blue prints.) We live and function in an environment filled with Photons. Everything you see is basically photons that have been fused together (by intentions) to produce a material substance.

At Dog Wish we teach you how to understand and work with energy, in yourself, and in AMANDA N LYLA 10the connected environment around you, to produce a harmonious balance and functionality within yourself, as an intelligent, feeling being. It’s phenomenal! Being able to focus and use the energies in and around you gives you the power to make your life the way YOU want. Are you ready? Learning how to use energy to your advantage is a simple and great answer! Being able:AMANDA N BOWSER

  • to slow down,
  • focus,
  • move as an integrated part of the universe,
  • in sync with life,

is wonderful. Being able to be sensitive and intelligent about the energies that you connect with and use to build your life, and to control what energies affect you, and how, makes all the difference in the world!

ANSWER 3: CO – The greatest concept in the/your worldMAX2NISA

Not a word at all, but a concept, these two letters stand out in a world that speeding towards the freezing regions of isolation and separation, filled with anxiety and fear, and shout, “you are NOT alone!”

The word “co” stands for connectivity, a bonding togetherness, the gentle warmth of love and acceptance; everything good and desirable that our world has to offer. In dog training we use commands to communicate and coordinate our efforts with our dogs. The word co means two (the co-efficient of); two individuals tied together with a common purpose, a common perspective, and a common goal. These individuals are unified by a bond, or “chain”, that binds them. That chain is positive energy. The “co” part of command shows us that the concept we are using here is one that works out of a team philosophy. To “mand” is to move forwards. Therefore, we have:

  • two individuals who have bonded together,
  • are unified in purpose,
  • and have chosen to move forwards as “one”.

The term command is an invitation, not a statement, or a demand, or a threat, but an invitation to work “in-pack”, as a team.

We believe in being “co”. “Co” stands for connection. We are intimately connected with20121228091803-Tim_and_Kobe our entire universe, from a sub cellular photon level and as far as there is a Universe, we are part of it, and it, is part of us. Everything we do is a connected, integrated effort. We live, breathe, move, think, and have being as a part of the Universe, and as part of our world. As a part of the whole we:

  • cooperate,
  • communicate,
  • coexist,
  • cohabitate,
  • And COMMAND!

We share in unison with our world the blessings and curses that our world endures. Being a connected part of the whole, and not a disconnected, separated, self-existing being, we learn to live with the natural movement and exchange of the world. It is a more enjoyable life, that we are blessed to experience.  We are commanded to do so by nature, so we can fight against it, or incorporate and flow with it.  Do you want to be happy, or frustrated and angry?

 

ANSWER 4: RIGHT – let’s get things right!SPENCER

Humans are the only animals on the planet that are primarily left-brained. We work at it.  We are taught and criticized to think and stay left brained. Going right brained is considered inferior, feminine (which, of course, means less than, demoted, not as good as), and is looked down upon by society. In a world which believes that the dominant survive, nice guys are losers and intimidation is better, and being aggressive is superior; being right brained is frowned upon. “What are you, an animal?” It is our sublime intelligence that has taken us to the top of the food chain. Why, look around you, and see the proof. Man is by far superior to other animals; or is he?

The fact is that being “left-brained” goes against the entire rest of the animal life, nature, and universally accepted trends on this earth. In becoming left-brained, humans, as a species of animal life, have been able to develop themselves and their “societies”, at the expense of everyone, and everything around them.  We are destroying the world we live on, the universe we live as a part of, and ourselves, in the process.  We are the worst thing in the universe.  Our neighbors hate us!  We are unbalanced, unstable, and incredibly dangerous, to our world, anything to and ourselves we come in contact with. I’m sorry for being so negative; it’s just the truth.

 

The greatest answer to our problem, found for centuries by “wise” individuals of our species, is to go “right-brained”. The Buddists call it meditation, Christians call it “being in the spirit”, etc. The fact is that, by going “right-brained” you unhinge from the chaos, anxiety and stress, and driving forces we are creating in our world, and simply stop.

 

ANSWER 5: STOPBESS N FRIENDS

Learning to stop is one of life’s greatest releases. I have to also state here that people with developmental disabilities tend to be “right-brained”. That’s why I state that Autism is nature’s way of keeping us human. I believe that Autism is dominant, which the world’s leading scientists and doctors now agree with. Of course, that can’t be right, or people like our world’s top technological leaders, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Larry Meisner, etc., would have mentalities, altered by an autistic type of disfunctionality, which they all do.

At Dog Wish we teach our clients how to go “right-brained”, and everything we do from beginning to end is done in a healing, therapeutic, holistic manner, to produce positive, good, happy results, with each dog and person we work with. At the same time we have found a way to teach dogs to go “left-brained”, and meet us in the “middle” of our mentality. It’s wonderful!

 

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, in her book, MY STROKE OF INSIGHT, shares how she was able, as one of the leading Neurological Scientists in the World, able to recuperate from a disastrous stroke. The stroke totally decapitated her left side of her brain, and necessitated re-learning everything in her life, and she did it by going “right-brained”.

Following her instruction, and that of other leading experts in the field of Neural-Science, our instruction teaches you how to resolve your mental dilemmas using the natural, universal, proven methods other animals use, by going “right”. You will LOVE being right! As you learn to go right your anxiety, panic attacks, depression, mental pain and PTSD trauma, will go away. Going right, is right.

There are other answers we use at Dog Wish, but the main thing is that, we discover, fortify, and use the answers to resolve our concerns. Because we use the answers, we end up happy, satisfied, and successful. It simply makes us better. We’ll be glad to share some with you, too.

 

This week on Moyers & Company, Bill takes a look at technology and the impact it’s having on our culture and society. Our devices are not only changing the way we communicate and interact with each other, but also who we are as human beings. MIT professor Sherry Turkle has been studying the psychology of our relationship with technology for over three decades and is the author of ALONE TOGETHER: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less From Each Other. At Dog Wish we strive to be real, and experience life together. Our totally natural training takes you away from the plastic world of technology, and shows you how to naturally connect yourself into the world of answers that you need.Bob Taylor

PURCHASING A DEMENTIA SERVICE THAT CREATES  cecil-and-owner

PROGRESSIVE ABILITIES FOR YOU

CECIL was placed with this client 5 months ago.  Two months ago, after friends and family noticed incredible differences in her functionality and behavior, she was tested, and her Doctors and Psychiatrist found that she had PROGRESSED from a  5.8 to a 3.5 on the Dementia Scale, a 1 to 7 point scale used to document the functionality of some with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Syndrome.  Her Doctors and Medical Professionals are amazed at how she has progressed because of her Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog.    

 

Through my work I have been blessed to come to know Ms. Carole Mulliken.  “I was

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Vice President and founding board member of the Dementia Advocacy and Support Network, International, the very first international online support group for people with dementia. My group provided the first person with dementia to make a plenary session address at Alzheimer’s Disease International’s 2001 conference in Christchurch, New Zealand. She was Christine Bryden, author of several books: “Who Will I Be When I Die,” “Dancing with Dementia,” “Before I Forget,” and “Nothing about Us without US.” Here’s her website  http://www.christinebryden.com/books/.”  According to Carole, who now has Dementia herself, the most important thing you can do for someone with this disability and disorder is to help them REMEMBER, through your Psychiatric Service Dog.  This single facet of our training causes progression in the handler, most of the time!

 

Linda Murphy brought her husband Pete to us for a Psychiatric pete-murphy-his-dementia-dog2Dementia Service Dog, and after a few month his progression was so dynamic that she purchased a Tavern near them, so he could continue to function using his cognitive abilities, progressed by their dog, who goes to work, and everywhere, with them. 

 

No matter where you are on the Dementia Scale, we can train a dog that will work properly for you!

Having placed over 50 dogs now, with people disabled with Dementia, we have found MAX n DONNA 2that, like Autism, there is a scale of moderate to severe regression with Dementia.   The following is a seven stage scale created  by a leading expert on Dementia:

 

*This seven-stage framework is based on a system developed by Barry Reisberg, M.D., clinical director of the New York University School of Medicine’s Silberstein Aging and Dementia Research Center.

“Alzheimer’s symptoms vary. The stages below provide a general idea of how abilities change during the course of the disease.

 

Stage 1: No impairment

Stage 2: Very mild decline

Stage 3: Mild decline

Stage 4: Moderate decline

Stage 5: Moderately severe decline

Stage 6: Severe decline”

Stage 7: Very severe decline

This scale will be elaborated on further in this blog.  We recognize that Dementia is very seldom reversed, and that the effects of this disorder are almost permanent.   We have found over the past four years and 25 dogs, that the presence of one of our dogs:

  • Stops frustration, confusion, dis-orientation, and severe anxiety for the handler
  • Helps the handler re-member themselves, reduces loneliness, and helps restore memory
  • One client, this year, has been professionally tested and evaluated by her doctor and Psychologist, and they had noted that when she got her dog, her Dementia was at 5.45, and has now progressed and she is functioning at a 3.5 level of Dementia.  This is amazing!

 

We also have found that our dogs can serve as a counter-balance to the mental and 20121219_181506emotional effects of this disorder, and in many cases prolong the development of the Dementia in the client.  One client this year was brought to me by her family because she has Dementia, and was emotionally uncontrollable.  When her husband came home from work, on several occasions, she was he was out “cheating on her”, and would want to beat him up.  They had to call the Police.  Since they got their Service dog it hasn’t happened once.

We have found that a Dog can be matched with each individual person, depending upon where they are on the scale of Dementia, and perform successfully for each. 

  • I have noticed that a lot of people believe that Service Dogs are good for people in early stages of Alzheimer’s, and other Dementias, but don’t believe that a dog would be good for someone in the later stages of these disorders.

We have found that because of:

  • Our breeding process
  • Our selection process,
  • And our training process,

The success of the dogs we place does not depend on how far the person with Dementia has progressed, as long as we find the right dog, and train it in the right way.

There are fundamental differences between the old time Service Dog, who was chosen and trained like a guide dog, and the newer Psychiatric Service Dog, who is selected for its natural working abilities, and trained more like a Police K9.

Our dogs are trained more like a Passive Protector, and learn to:

  • watch and care for their handlers,
  • keeping them safe from harmful actions produced by themselves,
  • their environments,
  • and other elements in their environment that might pose a danger to them.

They are not just a loving companion, but have the genetic potentials, and are trained, to care for their handlers in a loving and protective, task oriented way.  Instead of the handler having to be responsible for their dog, the dog becomes a caregiver and cares for the handler.  It’s part of the emotional bonding process we condition into every Dementia Psychiatric Service Dog we train.

BESS

In the following case we placed a dog with woman in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, BESS N FRIENDSwhose mind had experienced serious regression, and were very successful.  We placed an English Labrador Retriever with a client.  The dog was a loving, affectionate, playful dog, and literally changed her behaviors to do her job.  As Bess bonded with Carla her behavior became:

  • More mature
  • More serious
  • More focused
  • More protective

Introducing a new dog into this home, and the possible mental/emotional repercussions that could occur made this a fragile, sensitive task that had to be done with the utmost professional concern.

Bess went into the home and immediately went to, and bonded with Carla.  John and Carla had a special room for Bess where she spent the first night.  The next morning when we went for training, Bess had already oriented herself to their big back yard, patio area, and mostly Carla.  It was obvious that because of the training we put into Bess:

  • She already knew Carla’s body’s scents,
  • Her energies,
  • Her emotional needs,
  • And her mood swings.

After only a few hours, Bess:

  • Watched for Carla to come outside
  • Alerted when Carla left her sight
  • Stayed with Carla
  • Provided emotional counter balance for control
  • Went to Carla’s side and stayed with her when possible

It was immediately noticed that Carla felt more comfortable and responsive when Bess was with her.

Carla was easily disoriented, and became anxious and moody, and after 3 days it was obvious that Bess had a calming effect on her, helped her to remain balanced, oriented, and calm.  She constantly communicated with Bess, and they became a real team.  After we left this home, the effectiveness of Bess became even stronger.

The result of her behavior became very evident the last day we were with this family, when we went for a short drive, to tour some city sights, without the dog.  After about 20 minutes we had to turn around and go home for Bess, because without her Carla became disoriented, anxious, and aggressive.  Once re-united with Bess Carla quickly relaxed, became happy, and content.  When we went to leave, her one concern was that everyone knew that Bess was hers, and was not going with us.

Carla:

Is in the later stages of Dementia.  Most of her cognitive processes are now right brained.

  • She has lost the ability to use cognitive linguistic tools and instead has created her own way of speaking, much like a 2 to 3 year old child.
  • She is use to a specific routine in her own home environment, and when her environment is changed she becomes easily disoriented which causes strong mood changes, anxiety, and agitation.
  • Carla has an uncanny ability to maintain control in her environment, and wants things arranged

and done as she feels is correct.  In fact she is fighting for control of her life and environment which promotes anxiety, hypertension, and constant frustration.

The biggest concern and controversy we deal with in training a dog for a person with BOBNRICKDementia is where they are on the Dementia scale.  Most of the time, no one really knows, and each client we finally meet is often far beyond what we have been told.   The biggest fear is that the dog will not be capable of doing its job with the individual person because of their mental regression and inability to handle it.  Quite to the contrary, our dogs are trained similar to Police K9s, and they will take care of themselves, and their handler.

Bob Taylor has received Post Graduate Certifications on Dementia and Alzheimer’s by several Universities, and combined his special K9 training skills, with this knowledge to develop a comprehensive program designed specifically to train each dog according to the position of their handler on the Dementia scale.

 

However, for your personal information, I am including two important attachments with this blog, to help clarify what, according to each expert, the stages of Dementia are, and also what is included with each stage.

Seven Stages of Alzheimer’s (http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_stages_of_alzheimers.asp)

Stage 1:  No impairment (normal function)

The person does not experience any memory problems. An interview with a medical professional does not show any evidence of symptoms of dementia.

Stage 2:  Very mild cognitive decline (may be normal age-related changes or earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease)

The person may feel as if he or she is having memory lapses — forgetting familiar words or the location of everyday objects. But no symptoms of dementia can be detected during a medical examination or by friends, family or co-workers.

Stage 3: Mild cognitive decline (early-stage Alzheimer’s can be diagnosed in some, but not all, individuals with these symptoms)

Friends, family or co-workers begin to notice difficulties. During a detailed medical interview, doctors may be able to detect problems in memory or concentration. Common stage 3 difficulties include:

  • Noticeable problems coming up with the right word or name
  • Trouble remembering names when introduced to new people
  • Having noticeably greater difficulty performing tasks in social or work settings Forgetting material that one has just read
  • Losing or misplacing a valuable object
  • Increasing trouble with planning or organizing

Stage 4:  Moderate cognitive decline

  • At this point, a careful medical interview should be able to detect clear-cut symptoms in several areas: Forgetfulness of recent events
  • Impaired ability to perform challenging mental arithmetic — for example, counting backward from 100 by 7s
  • Greater difficulty performing complex tasks, such as planning dinner for guests, paying bills or managing finances
  • Forgetfulness about one’s own personal history
  • Becoming moody or withdrawn, especially in socially or mentally challenging situations

Stage 5:  Moderately severe cognitive decline (Moderate or mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease)

  • Gaps in memory and thinking are noticeable, and individuals begin to need help with day-to-day activities. At this stage, those with Alzheimer’s may:
  • Be unable to recall their own address or telephone number or the high school or college from which they graduated
  • Become confused about where they are or what day it is
  • Have trouble with less challenging mental arithmetic; such as counting backward from 40 by subtracting 4s or from 20 by 2s
  • Need help choosing proper clothing for the season or the occasion
  • Still remember significant details about themselves and their family
  • Still require no assistance with eating or using the toilet

Stage 6:   Severe cognitive decline (Moderately severe or mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease)

  • Memory continues to worsen, personality changes may take place and individuals need extensive help with daily activities. At this stage, individuals may:
  • Lose awareness of recent experiences as well as of their surroundings
  • Remember their own name but have difficulty with their personal history
  • Distinguish familiar and unfamiliar faces but have trouble remembering the name of a spouse or caregiver
  • Need help dressing properly and may, without supervision, make mistakes such as putting pajamas over daytime clothes or shoes on the wrong feet. Experience major changes in sleep patterns — sleeping during the day and becoming restless at night
  • Need help handling details of toileting (for example, flushing the toilet, wiping or disposing of tissue properly)
  • Have increasingly frequent trouble controlling their bladder or bowels
  • Experience major personality and behavioral changes, including suspiciousness and delusions (such as believing that their caregiver is an impostor) or compulsive, repetitive behavior like hand-wringing or tissue shredding
  • Tend to wander or become lost

Stage 7:  Very severe cognitive decline (Severe or late-stage Alzheimer’s disease)

In the final stage of this disease, individuals lose the ability to respond to their environment, to carry on a conversation and, eventually, to control movement. They may still say words or phrases.

At this stage, individuals need help with much of their daily personal care, including eating or using the toilet. They may also lose the ability to smile, to sit without support and to hold their heads up. Reflexes become abnormal. Muscles grow rigid. Swallowing impaired.

Alzheimer’s stages: How the disease progresses

By Mayo Clinic Staff

(http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/alzheimers-disease/in-depth/alzheimers-stages/art-20048448)

Alzheimer’s disease typically develops slowly and gradually gets worse over the course of several years. It eventually affects most areas of your brain, including those important in memory, thinking, judgment, language, problem-solving, personality and movement.

Preclinical Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease begins long before any symptoms become apparent. This stage is called preclinical Alzheimer’s disease. You won’t notice symptoms during this stage, nor will those around you. This stage of Alzheimer’s can last for years, possibly even decades…new imaging technologies can now identify deposits of a substance called amyloid beta that have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The ability to identify these early deposits may be especially important as new treatments are developed for Alzheimer’s disease.

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) due to Alzheimer’s disease

People with mild cognitive impairment have mild changes in their memory and thinking FLUFNNO2ability. These changes aren’t significant enough to affect work or relationships yet. People with MCI may have memory lapses when it comes to information that is usually easily remembered, such as conversations, recent events or appointments. People with MCI may also have trouble judging the amount of time needed for a task, or they may have difficulty correctly judging the number or sequence of steps needed to complete a task. The ability to make sound decisions can become harder for people with MCI.

Alzheimer’s disease is often diagnosed in the mild dementia stage, when it becomes clear to family and doctors that a person is having significant trouble with memory and thinking.

In the mild Alzheimer’s stage, people may experience:

  • Memory loss for recent events. Individuals may have an especially hard time remembering newly learned information and repeatedly ask the same question.
  • Difficulty with problem-solving, complex tasks and sound judgments. Planning a family event or balancing a checkbook may become overwhelming. Many people experience lapses in judgment, such as when making financial decisions.
  • Changes in personality. People may become subdued or withdrawn — especially in socially challenging situations — or show uncharacteristic irritability or anger. Decreased attention span and reduced motivation to complete tasks also are common.
  • Difficulty organizing and expressing thoughts. Finding the right words to describe objects or clearly express ideas becomes increasingly challenging.
  • Getting lost or misplacing belongings. Individuals have increasing trouble finding their way around, even in familiar places. It’s also common to lose or misplace things, including valuable items.

Service Dogs that Connect and Work through Energy

DOG WISH PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOGS ARE BRAIN WAYE SENSITIVEDenise & Lady

At Dog Wish we train dogs for life and death, critical situations.  We have found that the most important thing we can do for our clients is to imprint a critical energetic bonding between them and their dog, so that the dog will be able to detect and respond to their brain’s projected energies.   Dog Wish, years ago, designed a program that teaches our dogs to become “Brainwave Sensitive”.

  • First we teach each dog stop, and slow down their brain’s speed to process thought, so that they can stay focused longer, and pay more attention to detail.
  • They become quiet and intense on their handler
  • We then teach them to become hypervigilant of their handler at all times
  • Their dog will feel every energy coming from their brain, and every smell, coming from their body.
  • We use that training to retrain their handler’s brain, through the process of communicating with their Service dog, to function in a more self-controlled, natural, beneficial, and enhanced manner.

But, is the idea of a Dog being able to detect and respond to the energies coming from a human brain too far-fetched to believe?  I recently spoke with an individual who told me that it incomprehensible to even think that such a thing was possible.

*Recent University studies have proven, what they call “bioenergy” connectedness in living forms of life, proving the ability of life forms to receive and send energy to each other.

“A biological research team at Bielefeld University has made a groundbreaking discovery showing that plants can draw an alternative source of energy from other plants. This finding could also have a major impact on the future of bioenergy eventually providing the evidence to show that people draw energy from others in much the same way.

Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. The research findings were released this week in the online journal Nature Communications published by the renowned journal Nature.

Bader-Lee suggests that the field of bioenergy is now ever evolving and that studies on the plant and animal world will soon translate and demonstrate what energy metaphysicians have known all along — that humans can heal each other simply through energy transfer just as plants do. “Human can absorb and heal through other humans, animals, and any part of nature. That’s why being around nature is often uplifting and energizing for so many people,” she concluded.”

In the article, addressed at http://simplecapacity.com/2016/08/science-confirms-people-absorb-energy-others/, they even address how to address and handle interacting with the energy of other humans, in five simple steps.  While this may not be important to you, it is to millions of people existing today, and in many cases has stopped them from functioning the way they would like.

Given the following actual situations, this past year we received letters of Ryan and Odinthanks from individuals and families we have successfully placed dogs with:

  • Children with eloping, meltdown, out of control behaviors that run lower/medium on the Autism scale, whose sensory input issues are astronomical.
  • Individuals who have developed uncontrolled, critical Seizures, happening at random, that paralyze their bodies, and putting them in a catatonic state of being, causing them extreme anxiety.
  • Men and women diagnosed with Dementia, who with regressive abilities to reason, remember, or communicate.
  • People with Cerebral Palsy, Seizures, TBI, Autism, some in a wheel chairs, who have limited mental control, are frustrated, and can have violent melt downs and/or extreme anxiety.
  • People riddled with PTSD, Night Terrors, constant mental replay, causing them extreme fear- based anxiety, and crippling their ability to function in life.

For individuals with multiple neurological disabilities, having critical problems daily and hourly, unable to function and perform for normal daily concerns.

How are they going to handle a trained Psychiatric Service Dog, give it commands, and make it function?

The truth is, unless the dog is trained: SHANNON & BENSON

  • To work with and perform tasks for each specific individual,
  • To respond correctly, because that is what it does,
  • To do its’ job because that is what it is trained to do,

You don’t have a hope of that dog performing the way that person needs.

 

In each situation mentioned above, Dog Wish, through our dog training, was almost 100% successful in meeting the specific needs of each individual and their family, and working things out for them.  How?

 

*The first thing Dog Wish does, with any dog in training as a Psychiatric Service Dog, is:

  • To teach them on command to stop,
  • (Physically, Mentally, & Emotionally)
  • Cut their drive and relax,
  • Maintain a calm, controlled demeanor.
  • Tune into the energies projected by the brains of those around them.
  • Respond according to the energies presented to them at that moment.

 

This has proven to be the most effective means of control we have found for our clients.

 

We do not follow a Guide Dog type of training, but need for our dogs to be MAX n DONNA 2empowered and resilliant in the performance of their duties and trained tasks.  The dog cannot have an inferior temperament that disables it, like so many other Organizations actually look for in their “Service Dog” candidates.  The dog actually needs to be:

  • Fully functional,
  • Dynamically intelligent
  • Strong
  • In control at all times.

 

It means that the dog is trained to go into a “command mode” where it learns to behave in a controlled manner that serves as a “counter balance” to the behaviors of its handler, and often their family.

This actually produces a stable, consistent field of energy that the affected person sima n buddyneeds to help them calm down and control the unstable emotional impulses that riddle them constantly.  In so doing:

  • The dog enables them to find freedom from the constant emotional disturbances they face.
  • The dog helps them to relax, and function on a higher cognizant level.
  • The dog feeds them a relaxing, calm peacefulness that they constantly feed on

The effect of this condition in the dog produces the capability and enablement in their handler and their family, to function on a more consistent, relaxed, higher level, free from the onslaught of the emotionally disabling features of their neurological disabilities.

We have found that the strongest tool in our arsenal of K9 weapons is the ability to connect and synchronize the energy of our dogs, with that of their handlers.  Once we do this, the handler quickly learns to connect and respond to the energetic level of the dog.

 

AN EXAMPLE

We took a young male German Shepherd Dog (10 months), bred from parents who were both trained Psychiatric Service Dogs, to the home of a family with a young 7-year-old boy with critical Autism behaviors.  When we arrived the boy took one look at the dog, put his hands on his ears, and ran hysterically to safety.  It’s what we expected.  We all knew it was going to take time for the boy to adjust to the dog, if he would.

  • He was use to being the recipient of attention from his whole family, who joined in caring for, working with, and handling him, and often it took the whole family of mom, dad, and his older sister to do the job.
  • His father had quit his job teaching school, and stayed home to be a full-time father for his disabled son.
  • The boy had a zero tolerance level for any new sensory addition to his very regulated environment, and the family had great difficulty taking him out of that environment, anywhere.

This was a new adventure and experience that he was going to have to adjust to over time and in spite of the conscientious work from the whole family, and he felt “invaded” on many fronts.

  • We started working with dad, helping him to learn how to handle and use the dog CODYNBAILEY2to help with his son. The boy watched from a comfortable distance as dad, his sister, and then mom would interact with the dog, and encourage him in a positive way to participate with them.
  • The energy output provided by the dog in itself was astounding. The dog’s energy level stabilized and then changed the energy in the home.   We then started tethering the boy to the dog while we trained with them both.
  • The third night, for the first time in 6 years, they had a family reunion, and all the family came for dinner. It was great, and the boy would walk over, touch, and then pet the new dog.  The fourth day brought us a dynamic change, as the boy walked by, petted, and would handle the dog, along with the rest of the family.
  • The next day, Monday, the boy grabbed the dog’s leash, and walked his new dog into his Autism School facility. It was something they didn’t expect.  From there they were able to use the bond of energy with their new dog to get their son to go into stores without the normal horrific melt downs, they had experienced for the past several years.
  • It just kept getting better. The son started playing with the dog, going outside and having fun with his new dog, and sleeping with him.

 

The balance of stabilizing energy provided by this new family addition not only changed everything for the family, it brought an enabling presence to them that they had never before experienced.  We knew what the dog would do for this family, but didn’t know how they would react to the dog.

 

This single, but incredibly effective conditioning brought amazing changes and results to this families’ endeavors to help create and stabilize a positive foundation of synchronized energy which they all enjoyed and used to enhance their lives as a family, to work together, and to enjoy each other, on a level they had never known.

OUR TRAINING METHODS ARE FOUNDED ON: TIMNCOLBY 28

  • THE DOG AND HANDLER MOVING TOGETHER,
  • IN A COOPERATED EFFORT
  • WITH SYNCRONIZED ENERGY,
  • WHICH PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY BONDS THEM.

Our methods for training are:

  • Holistic, and therapeutic,
  • Based on a “right” brained technology,
  • Designed to increase the synchronization of energy
  • Between the dog and the handler.

As the handler uses them it:AMANDA N BOWSER

  • Slows their brain down,
  • Teaches them to let go,
  • Focus on the level of energy we are using to teach the dog,
  • And allow that energy to help the two bond and move in sync.

It is a major fundamental part of our training.  It is also the foundation for higher consciousness.

  • As you we use hand communications that focus the dog and the handler/trainerWILD BOB & ARGUS/participate together.
  • Both the dog, and the handler, focus and coordinate, cooperate, communicate, and co-create behaviors, using the hand communications.
  • As they do, they synchronize their physical/mental/emotional movement together, and learn to “be” at one with each other.

It is a humbling, refreshing, remarkable adventure that both share in, and as they do they learn to focus, think, and act as one.  Each one learns to understand, respond, and become a unified, bonded, team member, and to share with the other in a remarkable exchange of energy and power that they build together.  This dynamic communication makes it possible to sync the minds of our handlers with their dog in a comprehensible form that greatly enhances their combined abilities to understand, and respond to each other.

“I haven’t said much about why I have Lady because it is hard for me to disclose such lady-the-beautifulprivate information. My original reason for Lady was so I could continue teaching and my school to not be afraid of me having a seizure unexpectedly at work. Lady proved herself last Friday. First period, she came up to the front of the class where I was proctoring my students taking a quiz. She began to lick me and wouldn’t leave my side. I ignored her seizure warning and returned her to her mat and continued on with class. Second period I was administering a test and again was in the front of my classroom, not at my ELMO, near where Lady’s mat is located. She came up to me again, and this time would not leave my side. Now, my students were questioning her strange behavior. I knew I could not ignore her warning this time, as I knew I was now feeling a seizure coming on. I contacted my administration, and was quickly removed from my classroom and taken to the nurse’s office. By having Lady with me at work, I avoided having a seizure in front of my class and possibly hurting myself or others.

Lady was amazing! Before Monday, I had not disclosed to my classes why I had a service dog – I was both nervous and embarrassed. On Monday, with pride, I told all of my classes why I had Lady with me at work and what she had done for me last Friday. Lady is not only my service dog, she is my best friend. Because of Lady I am able to continue teaching math and to be independent. Thank you!”

“In today’s world of fast cures and pharmaceutical fixes, Alzheimer’s remainsMAX n DONNA 2 among the most devastating — and feared – diagnoses.   In a recent survey, Alzheimer’s was the second most feared disease among American adults, behind only cancer.”   (Richard Besdine, MD, Director of the Center for Gerontology and Health Care Research at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University)

There is a good reason for people to fear Alzheimer’s Syndrome, and other types of Dementia. To a large and growing part of the senior population Alzheimer’s is like a living death.  According to leading Doctors, Psychologists, and Gerontologists, there is no known cure.  While Leading scientists are boggled about the cause of this mentally crippling disorder, Dr. Nancy Minshew of the University of Pittsburgh, noted as being one of the world’s most prolific and best-known researchers on the brain says that:

The deteriation of the rational faculties of the brain in Alzheimer’s Syndrome, is the same process.

  1. Purkinge Cells and Purkinge Axiom are a biological extension of the central nervous system.
  • They serve to regulate sensory input throughout the Cerebellum in the brain. They work with a chemical and electrical physiology.  When overstimulated it has been found in laboratory studies that the Purkinge become compromised and vulnerable.
  • This has the effect of destroying millions of Purkinge, and nullifying the affect they have in the brain.
  • In Dementia, this process has been found to occur, which results in the deteriating of several parts of the brain, primarily on the left side of the brain.
  1. As Neural Synapse passages become clogged, your Axiom and Dendrites stop sending and receiving information that is vital to the brain being able to process, and communicate vital information, causing:
  • Short term memory loss
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Acute Anxiety, frustration, and paranoia
  • Extreme loneliness

In other words, people with the Dementia spectrum of Disabilities and Disorders PETE MURPHY & HIS DEMENTIA DOGsuffer a great loss of the mechanisms that make usage of the “left” side of the brain possible.  Their brain re-wires itself, and the right side of their brain takes over.  Though the right side of your brain is capable of imitating many left brain functions, you will lose your sharp cognitive reasoning abilities, which seriously affect your ability to communicate, speak, and reason.

HAVING WORKED FOR YEARS WITH HUNDREDS OF CLIENTS ON ALL LEVELS OF THE AUTISM SPECTRUM OF DISABILITIES, DOG WISH IS WELL PREPARED TO RESPOND TO PEOPLE WITH THIS NEED.  

Our dogs have the ability to see what you can’t see, hear what you can’t hear, feel what you can’t feel, and respond in ways you can’t respond.  They can even help restore function ability and give their handler back the independence and dignity they deserve.

  • We understand how to train dogs to work with people who are primarily right brained.
  • Our dogs are expertly trained to smell the specific smells in their handlers, detect abnormal smells their bodies produce, alert, and respond as they need help.
  • We train our dogs, as documented by the late Dr. David Kelso, PHD, a National leader in the study of Neural Research, and National Disaster Dog Training, to detect the electro-magnetic energies of the brain, alert, and respond. Kelso called them, “brain-wave sensitive”.
  • Our dogs are noted in numerous case studies as responsible for arresting critical emotion disorders, helping their handlers to relax, calm down, greatly reduce anxiety and panic disorders, and resolve emotional turmoil from confusion and depression.
  • Our dogs are also noted for alerting to seizures, brain mal-functions, strokes, etc., before they occur, making it capable for the clients to receive help and medication that lessons or stops the occurrence of each situation.
  • This makes care taking and helping the client easier and less stressful.

Dementia is also documented as the most costly disability in the world. 

  • The cost of a Dog Wish Dementia Service K9 Dog is only that of 4 to 5 months in an Assisted Living Facility,
  • Their ability to keep your loved one safe, happy, and function able is unmatched by any other prescribed program or medical treatment in the world.

According to many leaders in the field Gerontology, the sky rocketing costs Psychiatric Service Dogfor assisted living are going to drive the families of seniors with Dementia to keep their seniors at home, in order to save them from bankruptcy.  There are now 1,000s of Assisted Living Facilities throughout America.  The average cost for the least expensive facility is $5,000.00 a month.  Of course, the first month the average cost of $8,000.00 because of administrative fees.  There are facilities that cost up to $12,000.00 a month.

 

The Biggest Problems that we have found in our efforts to help Seniors with Dementia are:

  • Doctors that provide them with insufficient and incorrect evaluations, and tell them they are not as progressed as they actually are, and that they will have time later to get the help they need.
  • Families that don’t have the education or intellectual understanding to help their “loved ones”.
  • Many Seniors are stubborn, and in their independent regressive state of mind, won’t allow others to help them.
  • Many wait so long that by the time they get their dog, they are incapacitated to the point where they need professional care taking at a facility.

We were shocked to find out that “aging in place”, a slogan we covet for keeping people in homes, is now being used by the owners of senior facilities to mean that they promise to keep you at their facility, until you die.   It is also a fact that 75% of those placed in these facilities pass within the first year of their placement, which keeps these facilities constantly looking for new clientele.

I was reading some of the “Memory People™ Pages on Facebook and read how much BESS N FRIENDSSam, the Dog Wish Psychiatric Service dog, has improved the life of Rick Phelps.  Rick’s wife, Phyllis June Phelps states in June’s the Memory Peoples™ newsletter, “Sam has been like Rick’s Angel from Heaven.  He has alleviated 95% of Rick’s stress.  This has really helped me too.  We stay in contact several times per day while I’m at work.  When Rick is with Sam, I tend not to worry about Rick quite as much.  I know that he has a 24/7 companion that he loves dearly and I believe Sam feels the same way about Rick.  They are at each other’s side constantly and I totally trust in Sam to keep Rick safe.  I think the companionship a trained service dog provides helps their handler tremendously and takes a lot of stress and worry off the caregiver too.

Linda and Pete Murphy have found the same thing, and use their Psychiatric Service Dog, Hollister, as the “mascot” for their business.

  • Hollister has revitalized Pete
  • He keeps Pete neurologically balanced
  • He calms Pete’s anxiety and paranoia
  • He makes Pete happy and balanced

We have found that:

  • The DOG WISH Psychiatric Service dog WILL Assist the Handler, Family and Caregivers
  • They help reduce the 24-hours a day stress on the family.
  • The Dog Wish service dogs dedicate their full attention to watch and attend to their handler, but help everyone.
  • They greatly improve the home atmosphere by softening stress situations and    improving emotional vitality.
  • They reduce the emotional stress on the household members.

Rick Phelps said it best, “I can’t believe how I am being affected.  I’m sleeping, don’t BOBNRICKfeel anxiety or irritability, and I feel like my head is clear.  Usually I walk around in a fog I can’t get rid of, but since my dog, it’s like somebody rinsed out my brain.  I used to feel a gripping fear, all the time, but not now.  When I went to the store I would hold onto a grocery cart, and walk right next to my wife.  The further we went, the worse the oppressing anxiety became, until I just could not stand it anymore, and we would leave.  Now, I don’t need the car., I don’t need her.  I can walk all over by myself, and I feel great!  I realize you told me how this was going to work before, but until I experienced it for myself I couldn’t understand or believe it.  Now I know what you meant.  Phyllis June (wife), Sam (dog), and I were in a store yesterday. The normal ‘hold on to the cart’ like I do, no longer happens. I have Sam by my side and he does exactly what he is supposed to do – relieve stress and anxiety.  I can’t explain it, only to say it’s gone. He walks so close to me his shoulder rubs my leg.  It’s his way of saying, “I’m here, and it’s all going to be ok”. The most amazing thing is when we leave, I tell him to find car, there are certain words we use, but the thing is he tracks right to our car, or jeep. He never fails.

  • Before this, my anxiety started just going to the store, worrying about which door I came in and that I went out the right door. Now, not only does he get me out the correct door, he takes me right to our vehicle. It all goes on scent. His scent is 500 times that of a human.
  • Sam goes for the house. We have been on two walks a day. Each day I go a bit further, and every time I tell him “Home, Sam” and he takes me straight to our house.  He never leaves me out of his sight. For me, Sam is and will be a “God send”.  In the few days we have been together, I have yet to have the anxiety or fear I lived with day in and day out.
  • I was afraid of just life in general is the best way to explain it. Sam has alleviated all of that.”

According to Joanne Kaldy, one of the top writers and editorialists for the American Medical Association, Doctors and Psychologists have been very limited in their ability to help those with Dementia typed disabilities and disorders.  We’ve found that our Dog Wish Service Dogs have been a tremendous help for both the affected person, and their care giver.

The biggest problem is that most people wait too long.  The best time to get your dog is now.  The right time is before you have urgent needs.  This way, as you progress your dog will be right there, ready to help you, to be with you, and care for you.

How Dog Wish trains their Psychiatric Service Dogs, and Clients

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dog Wish has been enjoying tremendous results with our clients for the past three SHANNON & BENSONyears.  We recently have a client who came to us with Dementia at a 5.75 our of 7 on the Dementia scale, and after 10 weeks with her is now functioning at a 3.5 out of 7.  Her Doctors, Psychologist, and Therapist are amazed at her uncommon progression.  Likewise, we have a client with PTSD, and TBI, who has had 13 Brain Surgeries, and has a Titanium bar in her brain, suffering with intense migraine headaches daily, and horrible PTSD daily, and went home almost problem free.  Another client with a Classic PTSD case from horrific abuse in his life, came to Dog Wish and overcame 30 years of horrific problems.  Clients are experiencing almost unbelievable results with our trained Psychiatric Service Dogs, and people are asking “how”?  So I have written the following blog to explain why we are achieving such unheard of success.

 

As we train our Service Dogs, we need to understand what is happening “inside” of the Service Dogs’ brain.   I consistently remind my trainers that what they are doing will actually become a physical part of the brain of your Service Dog.  Every repeated emotion, thought, and response you show your Service Dog, over a 21-day period, will become a part of that Service Dog.

 

BRAINWAVES

Using the right side of your brain produces “Theta” brainwaves, whereas using the left BRAIN ARTside of your brain produces “Alpha” brainwaves.  Service Dogs use the right side of their brains to respond to what is going on around them.

  • The right side of the brain is often referred to as your “subconscious” mind, because it operates without your conscious mind (left-side) dictating how it should perform.
  • Your brain’s computer, your hypothalamus, takes information stored in the right side of your brain to construct behaviors.
  • Your hypothalamus works on memory, drawing from events stored in the right side of your brain to construct messages sent to your body.  These emotions are simulations of past behaviors, that trigger present emotions in your body.
  • Your hypothalamus therefore, constructs a learned formula that it learned in the past, and uses it to produce present emotions in your body.

 

Your Service dog responds based on the smells and energies projected to it by your brain and body, in a natural fashion.MAX n DONNA 2

  • Service Dogs respond according to their feelings, more than they do to a rational, artificial, thought pattern.  Those feelings are what connect them to the world around them.
  • Many times those feelings come from a deeper, stronger, sub-conscious awareness, and are connected to many sensory sources of stored information and knowledge that we don’t even understand.
  •  Through our training Dog Wish introduces our dogs to the rational world of logic and cognitive reasoning, and teaches each Service Dog how to understand and use their brain’s left sided functions.

 

THE RIGHT BRAIN

Our brain processes some 32,700 thoughts a day.  The left side can only hold some 300.  The rest are left catalogued in your right brain, which stores them for you, and uses them to build your behaviors.

  • The left side of your brain holds about 38 megabytes of memory.
  • The right side of your brain has enough memory to contain the history of the universe.
  • We now know that the brains of those with developmental disabilities, and those with brain injuries, brain aneurisms, seizures, etc., re-wire themselves, so that their bearer functions “right-brained”.
  • We also have realized that many of the world’s most brilliant geniuses were right-brained.
  • Therefore, the more we can tap into the great depths contained in the right side of our brains, the more intelligent and usable our thoughts will be.

 

THE SUPRESSION OF OUR RIGHT BRAIN

Our species has determined that Alpha brainwaves are masculine, and Theta brainwaves are feminine, and we literally suppress the use of the right side of the brain as inferior.  Instead we strongly condition our children, using the school systems, and demand left brain activity and responses.  Our communication and our education are based on Alpha activity.  Our views on Science and Religion, Politics, and Society are all left brained.  Therefore, our ability to understand and use our right-brained activity is greatly restrained, under-developed, and socially restricted.

 

Yet, some the greatest artists, scientists, and historical figures used right brained technology to succeed.  Their work has led them to a higher, superior level of consciousness than their “peers”.

 

If you want an example we can look at the great Albert Einstein, who was almost dismissed from his schooling in Germany and handed a broom, to clean up after his superiors.  Four years later this young man with Asperger’s Syndrome shocked the world with his “Theory of Relativity”.  After his death careful examination found that his brain was actually smaller than normal, but had twice as many neural synapse passages, meaning that his ability to send messages from his left, to his right brain, was at least twice that of the “normal” male human being, (actually women have brains constructed in this fashion as well, which is a good reason for why women make better dog handlers that men do).

 

The material stored in the right side of your brain is uncensored, pure, natural information.  What we do with our left brained activities is to take that information and modify it to fit our conscious (right brained) perspective.  In doing so we change it, so that it will fit into the categories of knowledge we can accept and use, the way we want.  Our left brain controls the way we perceive and respond to the world around us.

 

 

OUR TRAINING

I have developed set of highly evolved exercises.  These exercises use a positive BOBBYapproach that teaches Service Dogs to use their left brain as well as their right,

  • expand their consciousness,
  • and increase their ability to communicate with humans.

 

We have found a process that stimulates the “Purkinge Axiom”, (the extension of the central nervous system, located in every cell in the brain).

  • This process wakes up their conscious mind,
  • and teaches them to receive and process communication dynamically with us, on our level.

 

This isn’t that hard, as our brain is harder to stimulate,

  • works slower than the dogs’ brain does,
  • and is clumsier in its’ ability to receive and store information than the dogs’ brain,
  • because we have altered the process the brain uses through our left brain activity,
  • and grown lazy through the development of artificial technology that makes life easier for us every day.
  • This process is not natural, but artificial, and the more we use it, the more we decrease the potential of our brain to perform and function.

 

CO-CREATIONFAMILY DOG

NOTE: Through the training I have designed you can actually co-create, in both you and your Service dog, the capacity and ability for new neural responsiveness, changing both your ability and the ability of your dogs’ brain to understand and respond to mental stimulation, and to produce a superior capability for brain functioning.  

 

At Dog Wish, not only do we use a highly comprehensive process of evaluation, bit often there are capability’s that a Service Dog just doesn’t have, because of their genetics, that we have to literally create WITH them.  Learning how to “co-create” potential mental capabilities expands our abilities to use each Service Dog.

  • Through this process we physically re-program your dogs’ behaviors to a great extent.
  • Likewise, because my training is based on the use of your right brain, the more you use it, the healthier and more intelligent you will become and function as well.

*However, the most important fact here is that in so doing we alter the physical formation, usability, and performance capability of the brain!

 

SERVICE DOG SURGERY

 

Our training actually creates physical changes in the brain of every Service Dog we SAM22work with.   What we are doing here is unique, it happens to our dogs as they are instructed and conditioned to perform.

  • The fact that because we are so aware of this process, and that we understand “one-step-at-a-time” what is happening in the Service Dogs’ brain as we train with them,
  • means we can stop, focus, receive input from the dog,
  • and do a better job of communicating exactly what we want,
  • on the specific level where each Service Dog is,
  • the exact way they need that communication.

 

I call this process “Service Dog Surgery”.

  • This increases clarity of mind,
  • relieves stress,
  • helps the dog to understand faster, better,
  • to therefore respond more intelligently and problem free.
  • Does the same thing for the handler that it does for the dog. 

 

Understand that by teaching your dog to instead use “left brained training processes” bobnshepslike other trainers use, and to communicate with us, that way,

  • you will be altering the dogs’ mentality, lifestyle, and shortening its’ life,
  • (because now your dog will have to deal with the mental stresses we deal with, which are killing us.)
  • IT IS A PROVEN FACT THAT:
  • Our artificial world of technology is causing critical problems in everyone on this planet
  • 1 in 5 people are now suffering critical anxiety problems
  • 1 in 10 are being born with a developmental disability
  •  1 in 3 people are dealing with a brain oriented disability

 

Even though all dog training does have an effect on the brain of the dog who is being trained, by using our educated, knowledgeable, enhanced training concepts,

  • You can maximize that change, from 100% to 500%, or 600% or more, according to the genetics in each individual dog.
  • You can produce mental clarity, and enhanced abiliy to detect, receive, and communicate.

 

*At the same time, I use methods for handling and training that force you, asWILD BOB & ARGUS their human counter-parts to use your right brain to develop an ability to understand and respond to the dogs.

  • The results are that both entities begin to respond in a team-like manner,
  • To appreciate, respect, and respond to each other, in co-creation
  • By meeting in the middle of their right and left-brain’s levels of activities.

 

This process greatly increases communication, sensitivity, and cooperation between both parties.  As a result, if followed properly,

  • Both the trainer and the dog can reach a state of consciousness that is unique.
  • The Buddhists call this the application of Zen, and believe it is the key to mental and spiritual enrichment.
  • This basically, is the key to connect ability with all life, and on all levels.

 

At Dog Wish, our entire training program is a right brained process, from Bob Taylorbeginning to end.

  • It is based on feeling and experiencing through energy,
  • and not a rational based, non-feeling, analytical understanding.

 

There is nothing artificial that left-brain euphemists can use to destroy the experience for those endeavoring to find connection and understanding in a natural setting, with natural tools, and results.  Those who endeavor to short cut, legislate, or infuse the experience with their left-brained, mentally toxic, self-absorbed poisons, will be found out in left field.

 

     We’ve gone right!

People affected with Autism, Dementia, TBI, OTSD, etc., and other neurological disabilities become overwhelmed trying to understand and either re-produce, or produce left brained mental scenarios and functions, so a right-brained philosophy and technology is absolutely imperative in their learning process.

 

We watch them come to Dog Wish, frustrated and anxious, tired of others around them that can’t understand them, feeling separation and isolation, and needing to feel whole, healthy, and connected.  For the most part they find that connectedness through their dog.  Then, in a short period of time, work, and a committed effort to learn this process, they literally change their brain’s functionality, and their lives.

 

  • We teach our dogs to learn to work with their handler as a team, and family.
  • They learn to watch the handler for signs of what that person wants them to do.
  • They learn to be sensitive to the desires of that handler,
  • And To respond instantly as the handler communicates his or her needs.

 

We teach our dogs to be sensitive to the energies in, and around their handler, to feel the handler, and to communicate deeply and sensitively with the handler from the very first minute of connection on.  It is the most important thing we teach our dogs to do.  Also, as you can read in my books, published on Amazon.com, in their kindle section, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of the dogs’ thought and learning processes.  By using the methods, we use at Dog Wish, you can gain the ability to understand, connect with, and control the thought patterns your dog uses to receive, process, and behave, and in the process, change and heal yourself.

 

One major area of success in our training is that I “invert” the normal sensory process used by dogs, teaching them to focus, tune-in, observe, and respond to their human counterparts, instead of the other animal and earth oriented activities around them.  I have found that the ability to focus produces a major part of our success.  We endeavor to teach our dogs to focus 100% on their handler for several minutes at a time.

 

Another area of success comes from the fact that as a world champion Tracking Expert I have developed the ability to teach a dog to use its’ olfactory sense of “scent discrimination” to its’ highest potential, (up to 2 million times that of the normal human), and as I do I expand the dog’s ability to detect and react numerous times what it would otherwise be.

 

Another area of success comes from my LAPD field training.  If dogs can be held bob-herosresponsible for detecting specific scents, as done in AKC obedience trials, why can’t they be held accountable for detecting images projected to them, and specific thought patterns presented to them?  They can.  You just have to figure out how to test and instruct them.  When a dog realizes that I know what they are thinking, and that I am going to work with them accordingly, and instruct them based on what I know, their behavior changes completely.  They begin to stop and look to see if I am tuned in.  When they realize I do know that they are thinking, it’s amazing how correct and accurate they become in training.  They actually start asking questions, checking to make sure what they want is OK with me, and watching me to make sure I agree with them.   Being “brainwave sensitive” is the only way they can make it through training.  The results, as mentioned above, are miraculous!

 

Many of my clients make jokes about their dogs acting, “human”.  I ask them not to insult the dogs.  This is also why the methods and principles I use in training are so effective.  It produces behavior in our dogs that is beyond human, sometimes way beyond human.

 

What counts is that none of this would be possible:sima n buddy

  • First of all without our fantastic Psychiatric Service Dogs
  • Secondly, without our dynamic methods for training and conditioning
  • Third, without the incredible team bonding we create with our clients, and their dogs

Understanding and Purchasing a Psychiatric Service Dog, by Bob Taylor,

THIS IS A CRITICAL BUSINESS!

No matter what anyone says, this is a critical, and sometimes life and death business.

  • Every client who contacts us does so with great needs.shari-mike-jupiter
  • Every client we deal with is here with serious concerns. We try very hard to find out all the particulars as soon as possible, in as much detail as we can, but often the client holds back.  We ask for videos of the home, the family, and the affected individual, along with doctor’s statements, etc., and constantly find the need for more.
  • Even when you’ve got the information YOU need, training the special dog you’ve chosen to perform the tasks and functions needed, on the level you need them, the way the client needs them to be performed, is always critical and important.
  • Though life goes on, catches you up with emergencies and problems that get in your way, slow or stop your progress and cause you trouble, no excuse is acceptable to our clients, when they come to get a “trained” dog.

 

LAYING YOUR FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS WITH YOUR PROVIDERbob-heros

The following questions would more likely, if you continue, lay the foundation that will determine the successfulness of your Service Dog experience with your provider:

  1. What qualifies you to train a Service Dog for me?
  2. What is your educational background?
  3. What Awards have you been honored with for your work with dogs?
  4. How long have you been training Service dogs?
  5. What references do you have?
  6. Do you have a professional source that can verify the quality of your work?

 

THE REAL DELIMMA

No matter how, where, or when you do get your dog, once you do, you are stuck with sima n buddyan animal who is going to live with you, in your house, with your family, and around your community.  What will happen then depends on:

  • The particular dog that was selected, trained, and placed with you
  • The relationship and bond that dog has with you.
  • The quality of the training imprinted in the dog you receive.
  • Your ability to learn how to handle that dog.

You need to be involved in the selection process, and make sure that the dog selected is capable of doing the tasks you are purchasing them to do.  Many times my clients aren’t focused, and don’t send me or communicate to us about important tasks that they need their dogs to do.  Without our background of expertise they would be up the creek.  Make sure that your provider knows every detail about the dog you want and need.

Your provider needs to understand that you are paying them, and they are working for, YOU.  They need to be focused on your needs, and training your dog the way you want.  If not, you are wasting your time.  Most providers don’t even train their dogs for a specific person.   They instead generically train a dog, and then put it with you, and expect it to work.  That usually doesn’t happen.

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT SERVICE DOG PROVIDERS

We take our dogs out daily, and see other “Service” trained dogs all the time. Denise & Lady We have yet to meet a single dog trained to do the job in an adequate measure.   We know of many companies producing these dogs, and none of them are capable of, or are producing dogs that would qualify or pass our Psychiatric Service Dog program.

The selection, training, and placement of the dogs we encounter is poor in comparison with what we offer.  My only comment here is make sure you are going to get the quality and behavior you are paying for.

Recently another “Service Dog” School in California went bankrupt.  The owner had a website that looked good, and put out blogs that seemed intelligent.  However, she lied.

  • She claimed to have a 5 year-old -son with Autism, but failed to inform you that she had institutionalized him at 18 months, and only visited him occasionally.
  • She also didn’t inform her clients about the numerous unsatisfied dog clients she was dealing with, which caused her to file bankruptcy, and close her business.
  • While many clients called us for help, people had already invested thousands in her business, and lost it all.

When we have a questionable experience with a clien, if for any reason it was the fault of the dog, we replace the dog, and make sure that the client is happy.  Unless they have been dishonest, or just are looking to make a quick dollar at our expense, we please them all, and go beyond reason to do so.  It’s only fair.

A year ago I created The American Association of Qualified Service Dog Trainers, and we contacted every Service Dog Company, Academy, and Organization in America, to inform them of their opportunity to be a part of an Organization that they could qualify their business, and belong to, with great national benefits, to help them out.

  • Four businesses responded, but did NOT qualify.
  • We contacted several businesses ourselves and they refused to communicate with us, because they were neither qualified, or interested in working with us out of fear of disclosure.
  • Of all the businesses we contacted they were using basic obedience, and producing dogs that worked far below our standards.

Unless the CEO of the organization producing your dog has Graduate Certifications proving their background of successful education, and a backlog of dog and client experiences proving they are using that education properly, they most likely are either a fraud, or are using you to enhance their business, at your expense.

 

WHAT TASKS DO PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOGS PERFORM?MAX n DONNA 2

Unlike other Service dogs, a Psychiatric Service Dog performs more intelligent tasks like:

  • Detecting abnormal and unwanted neurological behavior in the brain of the handler
  • Detecting abnormal and unwanted smells in the body of the handler
  • Detecting and alerting to incorrect intentions in their handler
  • Stopping their handler from actions that can cause them injury
  • Alerting them to dangers and problems their actions may cause
  • Detecting and Alerting to Seizures, Strokes, Brain Aneurisms, Diabetic Hypo activity,

Melt downs, Severe Anxiety and PTSD issues, etc.

  • Detecting abnormal physiological behaviors in the bodies of their handlers
  • Being Sensitive to behavioral changes in the body and brain of their handler that can cause anxiety, depression, aggression, and self injury.

 

HOW ARE PSCHIATRIC SERVICE DOGS USED?

I have found over the past 35 years that our handlers use their dogs as:AMANDA N BOWSER

  • A detector of neurological energies caused by abnormal brain-wave related behaviors.
  • A counter-balance against unwanted neurological behaviors.
  • A safe guard against unwanted behaviors, both voluntary and involuntary, in the handler.
  • A shield against stress, caused inside the handler, in the environment around them, and by others, that could harm their handler.
  • A doorway to connection, with the family, society, and the world around them.
  • An enabling presence, giving them the ability to function as needed.
  • A balancing presence, keeping them balanced by counter-balancing unwanted neurological and physiological problem causing behaviors.
  • A comforting presence, by physically responding to the handler, keeping them safe, happy, and functional, in a world that they have to live in.
  • A safe guarding presence, there to watch, detect, guard, and care for their handler in every situation, experience, environment, and condition.

NOTE: the Psychiatric SERVICE DOG should NOT be separated from their handler, contained, or restrained from being with their handler.

 

UNDER THE NEW ADA LAWS:

  • Each of these functions can be considered a “task” that the dog performs for the client.
  • Unlike a guide, or mobility dog, a psychiatric Service Dog’s tasks are designed around enhancing their handler’s ability to function better.
  • The first task the dog has is to help their handler balance their mental/emotional behaviors. They are trained to help their handler:
  1. To feel less stress
  2. To be less frustrated
  3. To communicate and respond better
  4. To be more neurologically balanced
  5. To have fewer emotional disruptions
  6. To be able focus and concentrate better
  7. To be more cognitive and rational

 

For someone with Seizures, Dementia, Traumatic Brain Injury, a Developmental Disability, Severe Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, Seizure behaviors, Panic Attacks, Depression, Hyper Tension, Bi-Polar and personality disorders, and accompanying physical disorders and disabilities:

 These dogs can be life transforming and lifesaving.

 

WHAT IS A PROPERLY TRAINED PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOG?

A properly trained Psychiatric Service DOG is a dog trained to empower, enhance, and equip their handler, mentally and emotionally, to function and perform on a level they would be incapable of achieving on their own.

 

  • These dogs are not there for emotional support, but
  • have been mentally modified,
  • and conditioned with advanced training,
  • to detect, understand, and
  • respond to the mental and emotional needs of their handlers.

 

They perform “critical ‘tasks” that are necessary for the wellbeing of their handlers.

NOTE:

  • This is not an artificial, trick trained, handler commanded performance,
  • but a dynamic, self-motivated performance strategically designed to preserve the life and integrity of the handler(s) they serve.
  • They are NOT companions, but real living partners who share and experience everything with and for their handler.
  • They are not obedience trained dogs, but dogs that detect, discern, and respond in behalf of their handler, as is needed, according to the situation.

 

Therefore, it is extremely important that during the training process, when the dog is learning, that they be subjected to different environments, handlers, and circumstances that will match those they are going to encounter, when they go to their handler’s home.  If not, the dog will most probably NOT perform or behave in the manner which the supplier has trained them for YOU.

 

HOW ARE PSCHIATRIC SERVICE DOGS USED?

I have found over the past 35 years that our handlers use their dogs as:

  • A detector of neurological energies caused by abnormal brain-wave related FLUFNNO2behaviors.
  • A counter-balance against unwanted neurological behaviors.
  • A safe guard against unwanted behaviors, both voluntary and involuntary, in the handler.
  • A shield against stress, caused inside the handler, in the environment around them, and by others.
  • A doorway to connection, with the family, society, and the world around them.
  • An enabling presence, giving them the ability to function as needed.
  • A balancing presence, keeping them balanced by counter-balancing unwanted neurological and physiological problems, created by the hypothalamus in their brains, and causing physiological behaviors for them, which they cannot control.
  • A comforting presence, by physically responding to the handler, keeping them safe, happy, and functional, in a world that they have to live in.

I cannot explain how important this knowledge is for YOU as a potential purchaser of such a dog.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND

Most clients come to our facility, and try to learn how to handle their dog successfully.  Unfortunately, that is exactly what they should not do.  What is important is to learn to fundamentals we use to train our dogs, that makes them perform, and produces phenomenal results for you.

We had one client this year come for her dog against our wishes.  She was physically not able to work with her dog, and even though her 12- year- old daughter could make the dog perform, we had serious concerns for her.  She took her dog home, and after 6 weeks or so emailed us, telling us of the problems she was having.  She then stopped, and didn’t respond to our calls or emails.  Then, two months later, we started getting calls from a man who had been given our dog by a friend who was a Chicago Police Officer.  This man had PTSD, and he was calling to thank us for having trained such a great dog.  According to him, this was the best dog he had ever handled.  He was an ex-military K9 handler, and had seen hundreds of trained k9s, but never one so very well trained.

The difference was, he knew how to work with a K9.  They called, face timed me, and watched several sessions where we were training dogs like his, asked a lot of questions, and used this knowledge to keep the dog in shape.  He is a farm dog, good with all animals, the family of kids and adults, and specifically trained to attack PTSD and manic behaviors, which he has obliterated.  Simply put, they love us.

My point in relating this is that you need to learn to train your dog, to keep them just like they come.

Seizure & Neurological Detection and Response Service Dogs, by Bob Taylor

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

For 18 years now DOGWISH has placed over 200 Pre-Alerting Seizure and Neurological Detection Psychiatric Service Dogs that change their handler’s lives.  These Service Dogs are specifically trained to:

  1. Counter balance your brain’s neurological patterns, to stop it from producing Ryan and OdinSeizures.
  2. To detect abnormal brainwave activity, body chemical scents, and corresponding behaviors, before actual seizure experiences, or other abnormal neurological disruptions take place.
  3. Alert you to this occurrence so that can stop, take meds, and lessen the potential for a seizure.
  4. Stay with you being hyper vigilant  and caring for you as your care partner during any event.
  5. Get help for you.

I never set out to train dogs for Seizures.  This originally occurred in the early 2,000s as the result of training dogs for clients disabled with autistic developmental disabilities. As our training process allowed the Psychiatric Service Dogs we trained to be sensitive to the actual Physiological processes in the brain and body of each handler, we started receiving reports detailing the affect that our dogs were having on them.  They had a strong impact, especially in the areas dealing with:

  • their uncontrollable emotional outbursts,
  • meltdowns,
  • seizures,
  • Anxiety and PTSD experiences,
  • Abnormal and Dementia oriented behaviors and mental activities.

The dogs Dog Wish was placing greatly minimized or eliminated these behaviors in their handlers.

As a result, their families and care givers began to ask about the procedures we used Harley !to produce these results with our trained Dog Wish Service Dogs.

I seriously investigated each situation to find out what exactly was happening.  I wanted to know what we were doing, through our training, which caused this phenomenon.

As a result I found some specific details that were consistent throughout

  1. As a result of the Psychiatric Service Dog training Dog Wish provided with each dog to modify and balance the output of energy in each Service Dog, just the presence of the Service Dog greatly helped to counter balance an arrest their abnormal, meltdown, anxiety, and seizure typed behaviors. 
  2. As Multi-National and World Championship Tracking Experts, we trained each Service Dog to detect and indicate the scent of their handler. When that scent changed, the dogs would become nervous and alert the handler’s caregivers, whining, barking, running in circles, standing in front of them so they had to stop and investigate themselves, etc., until they realized something was wrong, and could medicate and care for that person properly.
  3. The Service Dogs were also detecting the energy that their handlers were projecting out, and alerted when that energy changed, which greatly helped arrest their abnormal, meltdown, and seizure typed behaviors.

In doing this we:

  • Altered the flow of energy with each dog, to correspond with their handler.
  • Taught each dog to focus completely on the handler, smelling their scent, and becoming acutely aware of their energy.

I read about others who were doing this training, and was deeply disappointed in their lack of knowledge, expertise, and performance. 

  • Their training was based on shallow tricks.
  • The level of their training was basic, and non-professional
  • The philosophy of their training had nothing to do with Psychiatric work

It was obvious to me that someone needed to do something to help this community.  MAX n DONNA 2Their dogs were not trained comprehensively to detect anything with any degree of certainty.  They had done nothing to change and enhance the mental abilities in their dogs to make them credible, like Dog Wish has now done for 15 years, with tremendous success.

How I obtained the Answer…

I have been involved in the study of canine behavior for some forty years now with both domestic and wild dogs,

  • locally, nationally, and internationally,
  • both as an international competitor, the California State Superior Court K9 Expert bob-herosand State Behaviorist, and in connection with Universities and leading Scientists.
  • Through my Post Graduate studies I have been able to comprehend and inductively compile an understanding of how the canine brain receives, processes, and responds to life in our known world. (See my book, DOG PSYCHOLOGY 101: the thinking dog),
  • I have used this knowledge to train Psychiatric typed Service Dogs for hundreds of individuals, and organizations, over 30 years, like the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

We connected and have been certified, completing University Courses on the Brain, and dealing with people who are disabled and disordered, with several Universities (Duke, John Hopkins, UCLA, University of Tasmania), to find answers to problems caused by the numerous disabilities related to the brain and body such as Autism, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, Seizures, Anxiety and PTSD, and Dementias, in humans.

We have compared the information and findings from these many sources, with the answers we have found from our own studies conducted with the many dogs we are constantly training for people with disabilities.

At the same time we have worked with a complete spectrum of behaviors daily, presented to us by concerned clients who have brought their dogs to us for behavioral development, conditioning, replacement, transformation, and rectification.

The specific cause for our success is the ability I have been able to create, to BESS N FRIENDSstimulate, and to engineer mental growth, development, and responsiveness from our Psychiatric Service dogs.

At Dog Wish we modify the thought process, and behavior in each dog we train. In order to be effective and successful we work with each dog to:

  • Enhance their self-image and role in their pack or family,
  • Raise their level of intelligence and individual maturity,
  • Teach them how to focus, connect, and keep their concentration on their handler,
  • In order to become more alert, functional, and compliance,
  • Become a more positive part of the relationships with their human     counterparts that they share and experience.

As a result of our training each of these dogs has learned to expand their brain’s potential:

  • To focus, receive, understand, follow, and perform tasks based on verbal cropped-dogwish-logo_edited-2.jpgcommunication, electro-magnetic stimulus, and brain wave inductive energy.
  • Develop the ability to communicate dynamically on several levels using several dimensions of communication.
  • Develop the ability to use their brains to do intelligent complex problem solving.

There is a great emphasis in our training on right brained conditioning exercises that help the dog and handler to expand and enhance their right brained activities.  We then teach the dogs to communicate and respond using left brained technology to make them dynamically intelligent.

The dog’s nose:

  • It is a fact that 75 to 80 percent of the information dogs assimilate, they receive through their nose.
  • The nose is by far their primary source of understanding. Dogs can smell body smells with far greater accuracy than we are capable.
  • When a dog smells your scent, they are actually downloading to their brain a complete, comprehensive, battery of information about you and your personality. This supplies them with personal information about you that is significant and incredible.
  • A dog uses their eyes as radar, and their nose for all the particulars. You could say that dogs see through their nose, because they use their nose like a human uses our eyes.

The dog’s brain:

  • Dogs can be up to 100 times as sensitive to the electro-magnetic energy in and around us as we are.
  • A dog has the ability to become sensitive to the energy your brain is creating up to great distances from you.
  • Because dogs operate from a “right-brained” perspective, dogs respond to the energy you produce as a primary source of understanding.

As Dog Wish trainers put their dogs through conditioning that enhances their sasha n duke 6abilities to use these tools and mental features, they begin to respond to their handler’s brainwaves, and body smells, detecting when they are abnormal, and responding by learning to alert to abnormal, or dangerous smells and energies that they detect, sometimes hours before a Seizure event happens.

  • This gives the recipient time to seek medical attention, and potentially resolve the situation before it occurs.
  • Many of our clients actually claim that the amount and severity of their problems have greatly diminished and in some cases resolved, since receiving and handling our K9s.
  • They have been able to cut down and stop using many of the medications that have produced problems with them, at the same time.

I have now been able to use this conditioning with my Service Dogs to work with a wide spectrum of mental/emotional disorders, disabilities, and developmental disabilities in both children and adults with tremendous success, because through the conditioning experience, what the client actually learns is how to work with and control their own mentality and body functioning.

Dog Wish Passed the Test!

During this time we were contacted by the late Doctor David Kelso,

  • a leading National Medical Administrator over several Mental Hospitals and Facilities,
  • Director of several Hospital Neural Surgery Departments,
  • The Vice President of the Wyoming American Red Cross.
  • A National Director of the FEMA Search and Rescue work in Northwest America.

He needed a new dog he had purchased, to be trained for Search and Rescue.

We trained his dog, Casper, and he became the world’s first Certified Akita for Search CASPER 5and Rescue work.  Dave took him home, and the dog quickly gained a reputation for doing searches that no other search dog was capable of doing.  Dave called and spoke with me to find out why.

After explaining how we were able to train our dogs to tune into electro-magnetic energies from the people the dogs were trained to find, Dr. Kelso flew out and spent a week training dogs with us.

Dave then had us train three other certified K9s for him, which he then used for 2 years, doing Search and Rescue and Police K9 and Service Dog work.

*Based on the performance of the dogs we had trained, he confirmed our findings, and coined the phrase, “brainwave sensitive”, to describe Dog Wish Service Dogs, meaning that he had proven the dogs were detecting the brain waves in mentally ill clients, Search & Rescue Disaster clients, and many others he used for training and testing.

The Service Dogs Dr. Kelso received from Dog Wish did what he considered amazing things that other search dogs could not do.

  • His dogs found a company caught in a 8 foot of snow blizzard, 8 miles into the mountains, at 3am, in -30 degree weather, when no other dogs were able to even find their scent trail.  Dave’s dogs went right to them.
  • Along with other things, they also found a home with 4 children who were kidnapped from different States, just by walking within three blocks of them.

*Dave believed that, “what Dog Wish does through their training gave my RADAR 3Service Dogs the incredible edge they needed to do these things.  I’ve trained at the top 6 Police K9 training facilities in America, and Dog Wish easily topped them all.”

Our Seizure Alert K9 program has become a tremendous success.

In 2006 dogs we trained were honored by the:

  • Delta Society – Therapy dog of the Year for 2006
  • American Red Cross – Search & Rescue K9 of the Year
  • The Journal of Longevity -“Humanitarian of the Year” (for our work with the Disabled Community in America)

In 2009 we were honored as Make-A-Wish Foundation Vender of the Year 2009.

In 2013 we were honored by an Interstate Public School contest, and three National Organizations, as AMERICA’S TOP CHARITY!

  • We believe that our training is a life and death concern for the dogs we shari-mike-jupitertrain, and their handlers. 
  • We deal with increasing the quality of life for everyone we come in contact with. 
  • We know that if we don’t do the job, the consequences will be devastating. 
  • This is especially true for those afflicted with seizures, and like conditions. 
  • There is hardly a week that goes by now, that some Dog Wish Service Dog doesn’t pre-alert, and help someone from having a major Seizure event.

How Your Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog can save you money!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Psychiatric Service Dogs are being considered by many Doctors and Insurance dogwishlogotransbkCompanies as Medical Appliances.  This is because the affect these dogs are having on their handlers is of a superior benefit to the handler, who is able to cut down on Pharmaceutical Prescription drugs, Therapists, and Doctors visits, after they receive their dog.

Our program to produce our Service Dogs should be considered and accepted by any Insurance Company for several reasons:

Because of the way our dogs are trained they have and do cut down on the medical expenses our clients create because of their disorders and disabilities.  Needing less medication, not needing in-house services like Rehabilitation Facilities, fewer Doctor, Psychiatric, and therapy visits alone can save you and your insurance company a great deal each year.

A properly trained, Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog should pay for itself in 6 THE COWBOYto 9 months, and thereafter should make and save you and your Insurance Company thousands of dollars each year.

  1. If you are disabled, you can’t respond to the needed help provided by Doctors, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Therapists, etc, UNTIL you get your Psychiatric Service Dog.
  2. Your Dog Wish dog is trained to counter-balance the way your brain causes you disruption, manic, out of control mental behaviors, and keep you balanced and functional, so that you can be the person you want to be, in control, and happy.

 

HYPERTENSION

We modify the mind set of each dog introduced into our program, taking out AMELIA AT SCHOOL 2hypertension in the dog.  The first thing we teach in any dog our Service Dog program is to learn to STOP.  In doing so we teach the dog to slow down and relax:

  1. Mentally
  2. Emotionally
  3. and physically

Either on command, or when addressed by a trainer/handler.  The dogs learn to lose hypertension when they work.  This is imperative, because when you introduce a Service Dog to a client if the dog is nervous, hyper, or too busy, quite often, that person cannot handle being in their presence.

As a result, our Service Dogs are quiet and relaxed around their handler, as trained, which has the effect to modify the mental/emotional balance in the handler’s brain, which helps them to relax around their dog.

 

 

HYPERVIGILANCE and Emotional Security

 

Next, we teach each dog to concentrate on the handler for several minutes at a time. sasha n duke 6 Along with other exercises we use for conditioning, this produces a hypervigilant attitude in the dog about the handler, and the dog learns to stay focused on the handler instead of constantly being distracted by sounds, lights, other people, or other animals.  This again helps the client to feel more relaxed, comforted, and as a result, in control.

 

  1. We train each dog to search for scented articles containing the handler’s scent. We use soiled clothing articles from the handler, and teach their dog to follow “scent” trails to those articles.  Therefore, the dog learns the scent of their handler, and bonds with that scent (since almost 80% of what a dog knows, they ingest through their nose) before ever physically meeting their handler.

 

  1. The very clothing, we use to train the dog to bond with the handler, also radiates the handler’s energy. Therefore, the dog learns to bond synergistically with the handler at the same time.  This greatly increases the dog’s ability to communicate with the handler.

 

 

  1. The methods we use for dog handling and training are strategically designed using the principles that were involved in the creation of Tae Chi and Zen Sciences; are holistic, healing, and very therapeutic. Just learning to handle and work our dogs naturally empowers the handler to be capable of using the techniques and suggestions from their Doctors and Psychologists, which at the present they cannot.  This saves a lot of wasted resources, time, and money it itself.

 

  1. A Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog, as proven in comparative studies,cropped-dogwish-logo_edited-2.jpg pays for itself in 6 months, through the reduction of prescribed medications, the need for doctors, psychologists, therapy sessions, hospital visits, and clinical stays.

 

This fact alone makes a Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog the single most needed, effective, and beneficial medical appliance you can purchase and own.  In considering the financial aspects of getting your own Dog Wish dog, please consider the attributes your dog will add to your life.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration.

THE ESSENCE OF A GOOD PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOG, by Bob Taylor

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 At Dog Wish we train dogs for life and death, critical situations, and have found that the most important thing we can do for our clients is to imprint a Denise & Ladycritical energetic bonding with them and their dog.  Dog Wish, years ago, designed a program that teaches our dogs to become “Brainwave Sensitive”.

  • First we teach each dog to slow their brains pattern of processing thought
  • So that they become quiet and intense
  • We then teach them to become hypervigilant of their handler at all times
  • Their dog will feel every energy coming from their brain, and every smell, coming from their body.
  • We use that training to retrain their handler’s brain, through the process of communicating with their Service dog, to function in a more self-controlled, natural, beneficial manner.

                   

Given the following actual situations, this past year we successfully placed dogs with:

  • Children with eloping, meltdown, out of control behaviors that run lower/medium on Ryan and Odinthe Autism scale, whose sensory input issues are astronomical.
  • Individuals who have developed uncontrolled, critical Seizures, happening at random, that paralyze their bodys, and putting them in a catatonic state of being, causing them extreme anxiety.
  • Men and women diagnosed with Dementia, who have lost their cognitive abilities to reason, remember, or communicate.
  • People with Cerebral Palsy, Seizures, TBI, Autism, some in a wheel chairs, who have limited mental control, are frustrated, and can have violent melt downs and/or extreme anxiety.
  • People riddled with PTSD, Night Terrors, constant mental replay, causing them extreme fear- based anxiety, and crippling their ability to function in life.

Families with multiple neurological disabilities and problems, having daily and hourly critical problems, unable to function and perform for normal daily concerns.

 

How are they going to handle a trained Psychiatric Service Dog, give it commands, and make it function?

The answer is, unless the dog is trained:

  • To work with and perform tasks for each specific individual,
  • To respond correctly, because that is what it does,
  • To do its’ job because that is what it is trained to do,

You don’t have a hope of that dog performing the way that person needs.

In each situation mentioned above, Dog Wish was almost 100% successful in meeting the specific needs of each individual and their family, and working things out for them.  How?

*The first thing Dog Wish does, with any dog in training as a Psychiatric Service Dog, is:

  • To teach them on command to stop,GIGI THE BEAUTIFUL
  • (Physically, Mentally, & Emotionally)
  • Cut their drive and relax,
  • Maintain a calm, controlled demeanor.
  • Tune into the energies projected by the brains of those around them.
  • Respond according to the energies presented to them at that moment.

 

This has proven to be the most effective means of control we have found for our clients.

  • People with Developmental and Neurological Disabilities cannot handle anxious, uncontrolled behaviors, so unless their dog is calm, relaxed, focused, and responsive, they can’t stand being around it, at all.

We do not follow a Guide Dog type of training, but need for our dogs to be empowered and resilliant in the performance of their duties and trained tasks.  The dog cannot have an inferior temperament that disables it, like so many other Organizations actually look for in their “Service Dog” candidates.  The dog actually needs to be:

  • Fully functional,
  • Dynamically intelligent
  • Strong
  • In control at all times.

 

It means that the dog is trained to go into a “command mode” where it learns to behave in a controlled manner that serves as a “counter balance” to the behaviors of its handler, and often their family.

This actually produces a stable, consistent field of energy that the affected person MAX n DONNA 2needs to help them calm down and control the unstable emotional impulses that riddle them constantly.  In so doing:

  • The dog enables them to find freedom from the constant emotional disturbances they face.
  • The dog helps them to relax, and function on a higher cognizant level.
  • The dog feeds them a relaxing, calm peacefulness that they constantly feed on

The effect of this condition in the dog produces the capability and enablement in their handler and their family to function on a more consistent, relaxed, higher level, free from the onslaught of the emotionally disabling features of their neurological disabilities.

We have found that the strongest tool in our arsenal of K9 weapons is the ability to connect and synchronize the energy of our dogs, with that of their handlers.  Once we do this, the handler quickly learns to connect and respond to the energetic level of the dog.

AN EXAMPLEFLUFFY

We recently took a young male German Shepherd Dog (10 months), bred from parents who were both trained Psychiatric Service Dogs, to the home of a family with a young 7-year-old boy with critical, lower middle spectrum, Autism behaviors.  When we arrived the boy took one look at the dog, put his hands on his ears, and ran hysterically to safety.  It’s what we expected.  We all knew it was going to take time for the boy to adjust to the dog, if he would.

  • He was use to being the recipient of attention from his whole family, who joined in caring for, working with, and handling him, and often it took the whole family of mom, dad, and his older sister to do the job.
  • His father had quit his job teaching school, and stayed home to be a full-time father for his disabled son.
  • He had a zero tolerance level for any new sensory addition to his very regulated environment, and the family had great difficulty taking him out of that environment, anywhere.

This was a new adventure and experience that he was going to have to adjust to over time and in spite of the conscientious work from the whole family, and he felt “invaded” on many fronts.

  • We started working with dad, helping him to learn how to handle and use the dog to help with his son.  The boy watched from a comfortable distance as dad, his sister, and then mom would interact with the dog, and encourage him in a positive way to participate with them.
  • The energy output provided by the dog in itself was astounding.  The dog’s energy level stabilized and then changed the energy in the home.   We then started tethering the boy to the dog while we trained with them both.
  •  The third night, for the first time in 6 years, they had a family reunion, and all the family came for dinner.  It was great, and the boy would walk over, touch, and then pet the new dog.  The fourth day brought us a dynamic change, as the boy walked by, petted, and would handle the dog, along with the rest of the family.
  • The next day, Monday, the boy grabbed the dog’s leash, and walked his new dog into his Autism School facility.  It was something they didn’t expect.  From there they were able to use the bond of energy with their new dog to get their son to go into stores without the normal horrific melt downs, they had experienced for the past several years.
  •  It just kept getting better.  The son started playing with the dog, going outside and having fun with his new dog, and sleeping with him.

The balance of stabilizing energy provided by this new family addition not only changed everything for the family, it brought an enabling presence to them that they had never before experienced.  We knew what the dog would do for this family, but didn’t know how they would react to the dog.

This single, but incredibly effective conditioning brought amazing changes and results to this familie’s endeavors to help create and stabilize a positive foundation of synchronized energy which they all enjoyed and used to enhance their lives as a family, to work together, and to enjoy each other, on a level they had never known.

OUR TRAINING METHODS ARE FOUNDED ON THE DOG AND HANDLER MOVING IN A COOPERATED EFFORT WITH SYNCRONIZED ENERGY, WHICH PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY BONDS THEM.

Our methods for training are holistic, and therapeutic.  They are based on a “right” FAMILY DOGbrained technology, and designed to increase the synchronization of energy between the dog and the handler.  As the handler uses them it slows their brain down, teaches them to let go, focus on the level of energy we are using to teach the dog, and allow that energy to help the two bond and move in sync.  It is a major fundamental part of our training.  It is also the foundation for higher consciousness.

As you we use hand communications that focus the dog and the handler/trainer/participate together.  Both the dog, and the handler, focus and coordinate, cooperate, communicate, and co-create behaviors, using the hand communications.  As they do, they synchronize their physical/mental/emotional movement together, and learn to “be” at one with each other.  It is a humbling, refreshing, remarkable adventure that both share in, and as they do they learn to focus, think, and act as one.  Each one learns to understand, respond, and become a unified, bonded, team member, and to share with the other in a remarkable exchange of energy and power that they build together.

As the boy watched the father work with the dog, he identified with, both the dog and his father.  They boy was learning to speak with sign language, so learning to communicate with the dog using hand signals was natural for him.  However, our communication goes much deeper, and the hand movements are used to express our thoughts, feelings, and desires, in a complete spectrum of communicable idioms.  This dynamic communication makes it possible to sync our communication with the dog in a comprehensible form that greatly enhances our combined abilities to understand, and respond to each other.

Bob Taylor at Dog Wish and I have numerous conversations, and after everything we talked about, and learning more about how he trains his dogs I just knew Dog Wish was the right place to get my service dog, if I was going to try and change my future.  Dog Wish began training a dog to be mine.  Later we set a date of April 6th for me to go to Dog Wish, to meet Cassie (my service dog) and begin my training with her.

The closer it got to Aril 6th, the more nervous I got.  I NEVER leave my house to go anywhere alone.  I need someone there with me all the time, I can’t be around or near strangers or else I freak out really bad.  I have hyperventilated, I have passed out, it’s just not good for me to be alone because I think too much about what is going on around me and that is when I start freaking out.  If I have someone with me, they can distract me and keep my mind on other things, which is good for me.

As the days got closer and closer, I knew I could not make the trip alone, so I had to buy last minute tickets for someone (Samantha) to go to Dog Wish with me.  April 5th arrives, my luggage is packed and I need to leave for the airport that evening.  I was a wreck, I just kept saying to myself…  On the way home, I will have Cassie, it will be much easier, I can do this one last time and I have to!!!

At the airport on the way to Dog Wish, I was a mess, I walked with my head down and I just followed the lady I took with me, she lead the way.  I sat down at our gate and I never moved, never looked around; I just stared at the floor thinking those same thoughts, over and over in my head…  I can do this, just this one last time!

When I arrived at Dog Wish, I met Bob, we spoke, got to know each other for a few minutes, then he had one of the trainers go and get Cassie.  When Cassie came near me, she immediately knew who I was from my scent, and I instantly fell in love with her!  I trained with her for four days at Dog Wish.  The four most remarkable days in my life!!!

On the fourth day, we headed to the airport on our on to come home.  Cassie and I walked into the airport like we owned the place!  I proudly walked up, got our boarding passes, walked to the gate and I sat and talked to Cassie until it was time for us to board the plane.  They boarded us first; we sat right up front where Cassie had plenty of room to lay down.  We had to change planes in Phoenix, AZ, and I had absolutely no problems around all those people!  I felt the same when we arrived in Austin and got off our plane and drive home.  I walked through the airport like a normal person!  It was a great trip home.

It’s been about 3 months now since I met my Dog Wish service dog, Cassie.  She knows exactly what to do to make things better for me!  No one ever gets too close, without her blocking me.  When I need to go grocery shopping, I don’t have to call every family member I have to find someone free, able and that is willing to go with me.  I have not sat at home a single day I have had off.  Cassie and I are visiting places, going for drives, taking walks, we go out to eat, window shopping…  I don’t need to call anyone to go with me, Cassie and I just get dressed and go on our own!!! We even TALKED to people, people I don’t know, total strangers!

Cassie and I just get up and out the door we go, jump in the SUV and off to the store, just me and my Cassie!  When I want to go out to eat (which I never got to do before) Cassie and I just go!  When I just want to get out of the house, sometimes just for a ride, sometimes to the park, to the lake or whatever we decide to do.  I never been window shopping so much in all my life, lol.  Why?  Because together, WE CAN!

There were some things I expected her to do for me, and she does all of those things, but what is really amazing about my Dog Wish service dog is that she does so much more than I expected!  I had no idea I would ever be able to go anywhere, and not even notice people around me.  I invited Samantha to go with us out to eat a few days ago.  She was sitting across from me, Cassie was by my side as usual.  I was talking to Samantha, and I noticed she had this weird look in her eyes.  I asked her if she was ok.  Her reply was, yes, but are you ok?  I said yes, why?  She said there was just a guy behind you, and you did not even turn around or get up and walk away.  Cassie even got up and went behind you and you didn’t even move.  I thought about it for a few seconds, and a tear rolled down my face as I said, I didn’t even notice.  Just knowing Cassie is there with me, relieves so much stress from me!  I truly never even noticed anyone around me in a busy restaurant on a Friday night!  It may not sound like much to someone else, but for me, that is a significant change in my life!  Cassie is so much more than I expected and we are growing closer to one another by the day!

I feel like a 100% changed and happy person!!!  I feel like so many of my dreams have come true!!!  I also feel that many more of my dreams are now possible with Cassie by my side!!!

Thank you to everyone at Dog Wish for changing my life!!!!

Love you guys and miss you daily!

The RESULTS

As the handler concentrates on their physical hand communications, they “let go” of the left brained focus that traps them in a conscious state of delirium, where they review the problems they are confronting, and worry about the problems that they might face in the future because of their past and now present situations.  Psychological Professionals have documented that we spend up to 80 percent of our time by focusing on this created static field of frustrating delimas.

THE PROCESSES

It is extremely difficult for a person to “escape” from their fobiatic conscious state.SHANNON & BENSON  Most people tell me that they cannot stop and meditate.  They constantly think in attempts to resolve the “Delima” riddled life they have created.  They can’t just let go, and allow their brains to move beyond this state of mind.  So we have created that ability, which happens through the methods of our dog training.

Therefore, the more you use this method for training:

  • The more you learn to slow down, express pure thought and be more exact in your communication with your dog.
  • Through this process you are also training your own brain to stop, focus, and to receive energy and empowerment from the Psycho-Centric Universe around you.
  •  As you do this you actually free yourself to move forwards, and create new scenarios of thought and corresponding behaviors which are positive, happy, and connected, to your dog, and then yourself.

We call this phenomenon “breaking the cycle”, and through this process you actually are training your own brain to work on a much higher level, where you are in total control.SIMA & FRIENDS

So many of us are cut off, from ourselves, from others, from nature, and from the very energies in and around us that we can use for resolution, and forward mental /emotional/ psychological healing.   Through the relationship with your dog, and the strategy of our training procedures we use for training and handling, you can reconnect yourself to life.

  • This process produces experiences that transform our lives, and help us to free up space for newness.
  • This process helps us stop, focus, meditate, and really resolve our state of being.
  • As the process is used properly it promotes neurological healing and balance.

Through this process of ENERGY CONNECTEDNESS your dog becomes your object of focus that you can use:BESS N FRIENDS

  • To “escape”, free yourself, and revitalize,
  • Become prepared to receive new energy,
  • Connect that energy to new, higher levels of consciousness, which give you the energy to move forwards.
  • YOU can use this energy to resolve the past, and move into the future in a positive, dynamic, empowered consciousness.

Therefore, this first, fundamental, and extremely important part of our enabling Psychiatric dog training teaches you how to learn how to “let go”.  You get out of the psycho-unconnected, self-absorbed state of conscious negativity by focusing on and using our strategically engineered program that produces “energetic transforming co-connectedness”. 

Through your work with your dog, you become:

  • connected,
  • empowered,
  • focused,
  • and able to move and function on a higher level.

Becoming empowered and connected, with yourself, the world around you, and the universe, through your Dog Wish Psychiatric Service Dog, learning to receive, focus, and project your energies, will change your life. Caleb & Duke101
