Service & Therapy Dogs
What Are Service Dogs?
Service Dogs help their disabled human companions live fuller, more independent lives. The Americans with Disabilities Act defines a Service Dog as a canine that is individually trained to work or perform tasks for disabled persons. The duties and tasks performed by these dogs varies based on the needs of their owner. Some commonly used roles for Service Dogs include:
- Guide Dogs for the visually impaired.
- Hearing Dogs for deaf & hard of hearing people.
- Medical Alert Dogs that can signal seizures, low blood sugar & many other emergencies.
