What A Day In The Life Of A Service Dog Looks Like

These dogs better the lives of the people they serve by allowing them to me more mobile and independent – whether they guide, alert, console, fetch, carry weight, open doors, or any of the hundreds of tasks they are trained to do – these dogs are every day heroes.

 

August 2-8 is International Assistance Dog Week with August 4 being National Assistance Dog Day and we feel the best way to honor them is to showcase what these amazing dogs do every day, because it’s their job.
