I have a yellow lab puppy who is in her first training class. While asking about classes, I found that I can have her take an intermediate and then advanced class, which would make her eligible to be a service dog. I love to volunteer and think this could be a niche for me. Of course, over time I'll be able to make that decision rather than right now, but I am considering it. I was hoping to hear stories from those who have dogs who are service dogs they take to schools, nursing homes, children's hospitals, etc.
