Hi! I'm in Florida too-Brevard County. We used to take our dogs over to the university in Gainesville every couple of weeks so the could give blood there. They offered us a ton of stuff in return-food,treats,flea and heartworm medicine, a toy AND if we'd lived closer we could have also gotten their immunization a for free as well as access to bags of blood should their ever be a need for it. Right now I'm pretty sure Goliath is too young. There are other (reasonable) requirements too...but totally worth it if you're interested. It was about an 8 hour day for us when we would go. 3 hours driving out, 2 hours hanging out (most people drop their dogs off because they live locally) and then 3 hours driving back. A lot of people thought we were crazy for dog it but all the stuff we got (even just the medicine) was really worth it.
When they take the blood they take it from the neck...maybe for now you could work with him on the trick "roll over" or in this case "side". One of our dogs was really good at this and the other had to be taught it along the way.
