Just an clarification of some patches that I have identified to be possibly seriously valuable or worthless. 🙂 I know I clearly didn’t protect each individual patch out there (there are so quite a few), but this is what worked and what didn’t get the job done for me, and why. AND Be sure to Excuse THE GIGANTIC MESS IN THIS Home!!! We are cleansing out the property proper now, is this is where we are throwing all of the bins and paper rubbish and other crap…. Sorry about the mess. 🙂

  2. I have a BIG white one on his back with red bright lettering that says "Service Dog No Touch Not Talk No Eye Contact" but no stop sign. Yeah, its like he isnt vested at all. People are assholes! I hand sew my patches on so I can rip the seams out to move them. I think next time I will sew on velcro or at least glue on the velcro. It is just easier to take these off this vest and put it on that one so you dont have to but 3 or 4 of each patch.

  8. When getting a vest if they offer to put your dogs name the best name to put is "do not distract" Or "i'm working" 🙂 best names ever to have directly embroidered into the vest.

  14. I have a psychiatric service dog. He is for PTSD and Bipolar Rapid Cycling. I have him in just a plan red vest that says "Service Dog". I have a lot of drive-by petters. I pull his head away and tell them he's working right now.
    He's a gorgeous German Shepherd, so I understand their interest. However, he is still in training. I'm getting a new vest/harness and a patch with big bold letters that says "DO NOT PET". He is still a puppy and is very distractible.
    Anyway, thank you for the great video!!

  15. I'm getting a service dog next month from ICAN in Indianapolis. I am wondering where you got your mobility harness with the metal handle from. Or if you have a video talking about out just point me I'm thatb direction lol. Love your channel and hope you're doing well and we can get more soon!

  16. OK, Please remit where you are getting your patches? My girlfriend is blind and we have had her dog for three months now, We JUST got back from walmart and at least three people petted the dog {Adam} So I have talked her into getting a vest along with the walking harness to tell people to STOP AND NOT PET. Thanks, Richy. OH, You can find me on FB under Dick Works. This is not a sexual content name, It is because I worked three jobs a day for over 25 years. Anyway please let me know if you can.

  17. I have ADHD, APD, Social Anxiety, Depression, and problems with my spine and joints. Every time I go out in public with my service dog, Sheila, a German shepherd, people will come up to us and the few nice ones will ask to pet Sheila and I politely decline and tell them she's working while the vast majority will just begin to pet her, because they assume I'm blind, and when I say I can see them, they just say "well you don't need a service dog, then, if you can see" and I try to tell them that not all service dogs are guide dogs, example, mine is a mobility assistance dog. When I tell them this, they look like I've just told them the Earth is round.

  18. You've probably found one by now, but these are pretty good, I personally like rectangular patches but there's one of each. We started training my dog for medical alert and deep pressure therapy a few weeks ago so I'm very new to this. No worries, we don't go to public places without our trainer and we don't pretend to be fully trained. Thank you so much for the information! <3 also, how old is Bugsie?

  20. I've tried don't pet… signs. They don't work around here. People are too busy petting my dog to notice. BTW, even if I'm totally blind, I KNOW when you are touching my dog. I can feel the posture change, so don't think you can get away with because I have no vision. You'd be amazed at how often people do this.

  21. If I owned a store or restaurant and someone walked in with what they claim is a service dog, I'd make a determination based on the dog's behavior. If the dog lies obediently at the owners feet and is quiet, 99% of the time, it truly is a service dog. They don't train non-compliant dogs as service dogs.If the dog isn't behaving, you have the right to put the dog out. One piece of advice. Don't discuss whether or not it's a service dog. Major on the dog's behavior.  That will protect you as no one can honestly claim you threw the dog out because you didn't think it was a working dog. Half the time, people don't even know my dog is present because he's under my table asleep.Even if it is a service dog, by law, the dog owner doesn't have the right to allow disruptive behavior. Barking or aggression is an absolute NO-NO. So is snatching food off the table. Dogs may bark at someone because people may have a scent on them. I had a dog who wasn't comfortable around people who own horses, regardless of whether the horse was present. The owner should immediately correct that dog's behavior.I'd also say watch out for assumptions. I was in a Safeway store when a young employee came and said I couldn't have my dog in the store. I told him it was a Seeing Eye dog and whipped out my ID. He said, "Oh, we thought you were faking because you didn't ask for help shopping." A lot of people considered blind have some form of sight. Reading large letters on cans of fruit and crossing a busy street are two completely different processes. I don't have any peripheral vision. I won't see the car until it's in front of me, which is just a tad too late. Things are seldom as they appear.

  22. If you're still looking for custom patches, there's an etsy shop that offers just that. You may also want to try a patch with just a stop sign next to your other patches.

  23. I enjoy most of your vids but I thought I'd mention. I am a legitimate service dog team and I do have a vest that has my dogs name on her vest. Everyone has choices and is better to inform not set rules because i had someone say to me. "I was told if you're legit you wouldn't have your dog's name!" …on the vest. Willow doesn't get distracted if someone other then my spouse or I call her. If however some one isn't as confident in their service counterpart, then of course do not. However please be careful when you make it a point to set rules. Its a question i simply don't have to answer and that helps me. typically a parent is explaining to their child as I walk away what is a service dog, it's like any other dog if has a name n right now it can't play. I do enjoy watching you but plz be careful you don't in turn create issues for others inadvertently b/c you simply wouldn't choose to do it. Thx

  24. I use velcro with my patches. It allows me to change the patches around as to whatever works best for us, as well as, allowing me to replace patches that aren't effective or are damaged, etc. Has helped a ton! I make the request to the company I'm purchasing the patches from, to have them put velcro on. I've only been told no a time or two and those I had them sent loose to me and did the stick on velcro. It's not as good as the velcro sown on (pulls up on the edges more easily, lasts for a shorter period of time) but it's better than anything else I've tried.

  25. I see this video is over a year old. Do you still need a TBI patch? I live close to a military post and can get one made for you. I have MTBI, so i understand a little what you go through. I am able to walk but still get asked why i have a service dog all the time, and i hate explaining it to people, i do have a limp and am not able to place weight on my left leg at times so he is learning to help me up and down stairs, we have been training a little over a year and test soon, then the real training begins .
