Icuras with DeanYes, we hear all about service dogs and how they are allowed to go everywhere with their owner. But did you know that people are actually allowed to have  a service pig?  Studies have shown that having a pet in your life can help you live a healthier and happier life.

” Pets can ease loneliness, reduce stress, promote social interaction, encourage exercise and playfulness, and provide us with unconditional love and affection.’ Provided by Helpguide.org in their post  The Therapeutic Benefits of Pets.

Not everyone realizes the benefits of pigs though. Their are a ton of people out there trying to bring awareness to the public about the benefits of having a pet pig, but there are even more trying to convince you that a pet pig is just a smaller farm pig .  I am not going to try to convince you that pigs are the perfect pet for all people, but I will tell you you that mini pigs can be the perfect pet for many. Some people are allergic to dogs and cats, so that pet is totally out of the question. There are tons of people that need some kind of pet for emotional support, which is why it is important to advise them of the benefits of mini pigs. I have read stories and have contributed to petitions from families fighting to keep their child’s pet pig in the home. This is a huge challenge for apartment and subdivision dwellers because  their neighbors are not educated enough. Mini Pigs can be trained to do almost anything and have proven to be a huge emotional support for people in need of that. That is why more and more mini pigs are becoming certified service animals.

Trying to bring awareness to the world is a difficult task which is why I am asking everyone to help. There is a perfect way for people to get involved and help others understand how truly rewarding a pet pig can be.  Icarus ( the pig) has become pretty popular with the Supernatural fans and they would like to see him in Burbank, Ca for the Salute to Supernatural convention.  Unfortunately, he lives in Dallas, Tx so he needs a little bit of help getting there.  You can read more about him and help him get to BurCon by going to HERE.

PigGear and his handler have a special outfit for him to wear. You don’t want to miss it.

If you are a supernatural fan, then you will really enjoy the picture below. Many of my Facebook friends have seen these before, but for those of you that haven’t, enjoy.

I can not take credit for any of the photos taken at this event.

About Brenda

I am the owner and operator of Mini Pig Farm as well as PigGear.
I no longer breed mini pigs, but I still have 4 of my own.
I started making pig harnesses in 2010 when I couldn't find a harness that fit right. PigGear was created when my mini pig customers needed a bigger size harness when their baby grew out of the one I provided to them.

    Hi Brenda,

    Where do I learn more about registering my mini pig as a service pet? It is something I have always wanted to know more about, but have been unable to find much information. Thanks for your help!

    I wish I had all the answers for you, but unfortunately this is still a pretty new idea. I did find this article though that I thought was pretty cool http://cnsnews.com/news/article/feds-airlines-must-let-passengers-fly-pigs-emotional-support. I will help you look more in to it though if you would like me to.
