Question by cyndia: Guide dog question?
My first question is… Do you have to get a guide dog as a puppy, train it, and then give it away? I think that would break my heart.
Is there a way to train -my- dog to be a guide dog but keep him myself?
I kind of like the priveledge of having my dog with me at all times while hes wearing some sort of “guide dog in training” jacket……. i know its a bit unethical, but i just want to take my dog into stores with me :(

Any service dog organization would make you sign a contract saying that regardless of whether the dog successfully completes its training, you WILL NOT keep it. Service dogs are for people who actually need them, not for people who just want to look cool.
