Hello! I have PTSD and because of this, I have been having difficulty in college. I volunteer at an animal rescue and ever since I was little, animals have always made me feel comfortable and safe. So, I am looking into owning a service dog. I contacted a reputable German Shepherd breeder but before I make the decision, I need advice. Right now, there are no service dog trainers near Waco, TX and honestly, due to college, I do not have the money to pay one. Would it be possible to train a service dog while I am in college and still pass my classes? How much time would I need to put into training the puppy each day? Also, do ya'll know of any links that would be helpful for people looking to train their own puppy to become a service dog? And one last question: How do you train a dog to not be distracted by other people and animals? Thank you all!
