Told you it's not a service dog. Getting a service dog requires a) YEARS of training the dog before it is ready and licensed to be a service dog, b) costs a fuckton of money, even if you get money support for it, c) you do not ever train it yourself and d) you only get the dog after several meeting sessions where you get to know each other and the trainer decides if the dog is fitting to you.

I think I've read online that you just can register your dog as something like a therapy or mental health support dog in the USA, but that doesn't make them licensed service dogs and a lot of times, as already mentioned, people misuse this to be allowed to bring their dogs inside stores and generally get privileges with their dogs. It's not for mental health at all, it's just an accessory to give the humans some kind of privilege (for example, bringing their dog somewhere instead of having to find someone to take care of it or leaving it outside). Which is also what makes it so difficult for people who are actually in need of service dogs.

The pup biting is what I already mentioned, German shepherds are high maintenance, similar to huskies. They are highly intelligent and motivated to learn, so when they're not being trained and exercised properly, they will start being aggressive. And that breed tends to be aggressive because they're also really territorial and protective. From what Lon is saying, it sounds like she didn't even ask her roommates if they want to live with a dog, a young untrained puppy on top of that, so honestly, I would be annoyed as well because as cute as the pup is, he probably chews on everything, digs through stuff and leaves a mess in general. It shouldn't be allowed around strangers at all until Lon has the dominance over it and it's listening to her, that it bites other people even if it's only for playing already shows that she's not training it, she just lets it do whatever it wants to. If she's not teaching it to not do that, it will just continue. I can't tell how the roommate actually is, but I have the feeling he didn't actually hit the dog, but more reacted to the bite and pushed the pup away roughly. It's Lon's fault for not teaching it to not bite people even for playing and yes, she needs to start that from the first second they're together. She's not willing to put in any effort as predicted and I hope someone takes the dog away from her asap.

10k to train a dog? Holy fuck. Why is it that much money? Sorry about the naive question. I know a fuck ton of work goes into it but why is it so expensive?

Costs about the same if not more here in Europe. If it's an already trained pup, you're paying for anything from the mother's breeding, over the pregnancy up to when it's born, medical bills, food, training, fees for applications and licenses... Google says those breeders usually are specialised on only service dogs and that raises the price automatically. Now the rest also depends on the kind of breed and what it's supposed to be able to do, a service dog for a blind person will need more training/cost more than one for mental health. The pup alone costs several thousand dollars only from being specially bred. Question is still what Lon got the poor pup for, as service dog for her body issues or as mental health support? As emotional support, the pup would need a lot less training and also would be a lot cheaper.

Vet visits to make sure no illness or it's not phycially harmed in any way 

training it canrun 5k alone

plus it depends on the breed of dog being train

im from the USA it makes sense. that why many people get regular dogs and call them Support dogs or Service dogs because they don't wanna fork over the bucks to pay for a acutal serice dog

i remember hearing people in vlogs say how ppl in LA would just get some paperwork done calling their pet an service animal bc anxiety etc etc so they could carry them around and get apartments easier (can't remember who said this, maybe jessismiles or something idk idk) but i can just imagine lon using the dog as a fkn ppl plow at airports and shit "MOVE, I AM DISABLED"

Can someone explain this to me, where I live we only really have dogs that care for blind people and all we don't really have service dogs for mental illnesses or other problems. However the dog that go out to people for help are already trained by a professional, is it like that in the US as well? Because training a dog yourself is already hard but for special needs it seems like a 24/7 job.'

Also she's gonna have a lot of fun walking that dog when it grows up because they can pull a lot because they're really big and powerful dogs. (I mean unless you train him/her right)

 

I know that in Australia you can get them but usually when it comes to pets and mental health issues, we are usually given an ESA or an Emotional Support Animal. One usually finds a pet they want and get it registered, not much training is required cause the pet is there as an emotional support (I may look into this more cause I would like one for myself). I personally think Lon may have an ESA pet but I think she made a wrong choice in breed of dog for her cause Lon won't last training the dog before she loses her shit and begs someone else to deal with it for her. It takes a lot of work to train any pet but a big, strong dog will be difficult work for the "delicate" Lon.

Maybe she should just cut it herself, stop indirectly begging and maybe worry about any issues that arises from looking after a dog.

Actually after a quick google search, it doesn't take much to register a pet as an ESA, just go to a site, register (as long as you have a diagnosed issue) and you can have a pet you own as an ESA and there is a lot of animals that qualify for being registered.
Also, they don't require any special training. I think Lon is using it as an excuse cause she is not qualified to train it properly herself.

Lon: I'm going to train the dog myself

lon: isn't certified dog trainer

lon: it's a SERVICE DOG ITS "TRAINED" 

reality: not a real service dog. I'm betting she hired a regular trainer NOT a service dog trainer because that costs thousands of dollars and thousands of hours worth of training

I don't know what to say. I thought she consistently claims to not have money. How did she afford this (what looks like) purebred dog? Also if you're so poor you can't even buy groceries why make hair appointments?? Also taking care of a dog is so expensive. My family is nowhere near really tight on money but just taking our pets to the vet hurts. Every little thing you do to take care of your pet takes a chunk out and they don't even have insurance.  I can't tell if she is trying to claim her dog as an emotional support dog or not because she keeps saying service dog... Which makes me think it's for her physical disabilities but idk just so many things wrong with everything here.

It amuses me on how often Lon goes to a salon and I haven't been to one since I was 17 lol, I am guessing that American salons can get pricey like Australian ones. Also, how much does she get from her disability payment provider? (probably way more than me I was about to call it centrelink but America has their own pension/dole thing, right? What's it called? so I know for next time)
Pointless comment: I get my partner to trim my hair for the last few months, it's not the best but he does a decent job of keeping it neat. Which reminds me, I need a trim again lol.

I think out of all the things Lon has said/done this makes me the most angry. One of my roommates decided to get a dog as a ESA as well and I think she did this so she could get out of paying the extra apartment fee ($300 deposit + $30 monthly bill) and she went for a dog breed she adores but honestly? I'm done with the dog, he was completely untrained (something my roommate lied about) and now i'm stuck cleaning after her dog because he sheds so much I have to sweep almost every day to keep the apartment floor looking decent. I know it's a bit OT (or at least I think it is) but my roommate doesn't claim to have as many medical issues as Lon does but even she can barely afford to keep this dog even as an ESA, her parents or grandparents had to help out with recent dental work and I think my roommate said it cost them somewhere around $600? If Lon can't even afford to live off basic meals then what is she going to do if the dog needs something that's $600 or more?

If she goes to a con and her friend's car "breaks down" again in the middle of nowhere in the summer heat how is she going to protect the dog from having a heat stroke? I wish ESA registration had higher requirements

(Hah, I just realized I double quoted you)

Luckily I can provide a bit of info for this topic cause my sister was a hairstylist. At the salon she worked at the base price was $8 for Men and $12 for Women for a cut. And this is for ANYTHING you want to get done, even if it's a trim. And my sister worked at one of those more affordable chains that prides themselves on low prices. Lon could probably get a cut a bit cheaper if she went to a beauty school cause they do like to have live people/hair for students to work on, but it doesn't run a lot cheaper. I can't tell if she got any treatments done or not because i'm not the expert but if Lon decides to get their roots touched up or any color work done then they're probably looking at a bill being at least $30

(I'm super lucky and have gotten my hair done by my sister ever since she started beauty school about 12 years ago so Lon should really look to see if any of their local friends are trying for beauty school or have experience with hair :alpacaheadshake:)
