Sable

Birttany Lindsey has a service dog partner named Sable. This talented Labrador Retriever helps Brittany daily. Sable is outfitted with a Wolf Packs Reflector dog pack. Brittany sewed an I Am A Service Dog patch to Sable’s dog pack. This is Lindsey says about Sable's gear:

We have one of your ID Capes, and just ordered the Reflector dog pack from you [Wolf Packs]. It has been beautiful. I wouldn't be able to do what I do at the university without her help carrying the bag which she does with a great sense of purpose. She returned 80 graded exams and 80 copies of an article to my students as well as carry my computer cable, electronic devices and our water and her extra snacks. She's still bumping into door frames a bit, so I'm having the Service Dog patches sewn on rather than glued. This is when I realized that I can't live without the bag.

I've discovered that since the bag is so light, she can go anywhere with it on without my worrying about her and it is great for shopping, too. She carried our blueberries and my meds the other day at the Sam's and even my leftovers out of a restaurant yesterday (she thought that was terribly unfair, but I did share with her eventually so she got over it!). Thanks so much for the beautiful, light weight design.

I ordered four other different bags to compare and it was by far the lightest, easiest to get on and off and best fitting of the bunch. So, thus, we need a second one so that I'll be able to wash one and also have patches sewn on. I wish I could order the patches along with the bag here, but we look forward to seeing our back up bag at least and we thank you for your careful construction and design.

Thanks so much, Brittany and Sable

Devo (Lab cross) and Ty Bo (Poodle/Pomeranian cross) trained by Dogs For The Deaf in Oregon. They are wearing their orange ID Cape dog vests to identify them as Hearing Dogs. Here is some more information about the wonderful organization that trained these two special dogs.

For over 30 years, Dogs for the Deaf has been rescuing dogs from shelters, professionally training them, and placing them nationwide and in Canada with people who can benefit from their special training. Dogs for the Deaf trains Hearing Dogs to alert people who are deaf or hard of hearing to environmental sounds around them, Autism Assistance Dogs to provide increased safety and emotional bonding for children with autism, and Miracle Mutts who provide emotional support, therapeutic benefits, and a reason to live to people with a variety of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. These dogs are placed free of charge with applicants who need their assistance. Dogs for the Deaf is a non-profit organization funded totally by donations.

Reef and Fierce

Samoyeds Reef and Fierce wear this ID Cape dog vests in the NAMI event.
Samoyeds Reef, Fierce, and their owner Diana Steele joined in an event for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by participating in a fund-raising walk. Their team raised the most money. The dogs were very popular and looked sharp as they wore their ID Cape dog vests. Fierce has his head turned so that you can't see his cape in this picture. This picture was taken after the walk. As you can see, it was a hot day. They'll be doing this again in May 2009.

Shadow

Hearing Dog Shadow working in her ID Cape assistance dog vest.
Gordon and Leslie's 6½ year old black Lab Shadow has multiple tasks to perform. She is an assistance dog who was trained for Hearing Dog work. As most Hearing Dogs, she alerts Gordon & Leslie to various sounds they would otherwise miss, such as fire alarms, the telephone ringing, buzzers or timers for cooking, people knocking at the door, or any other noises that aren't what she feels is normal in her world. She also does reach Assistance Dog work for them. Shadow will pick up things they drop and go get things that are a bit low and cause them pain to bend over and get.

Gordon says, "She makes the quality of our lives so much better and that's so important to us. Shadow does many things for us other than being a wonderful loving companion. Shadow is just incredible!"

She is wearing an orange ID Cape dog vest with patches (one patch is an old design we no longer carry).

Amber

This is Jim Miller's 2½ year old Golden Retriever, Amber. Jim describes her as "Very intelligent, motivated, curious, helpful, playful, a quick learner, and of course pretty." She sounds like the perfect working companion!

Amber is a Service Dog trained specifically for persons with seizure disorders. A Seizure Alert Dog notifies someone when a seizure is pending, sometimes as far as 30 minutes in advance. That person can get to a safer place, sit down, notify a bystander, and prepare for an oncoming attack. The dog can either standby or go get help if necessary. Amber’s ID Cape and patch inform the public about her important job.
