Transcript of Service Dogs

SERVICE ANIMALS are animals trained to
perform tasks for people with disabilities.
Examples of service animals are dogs who guide people who are blind, alert people who are deaf, pull wheelchairs, alert and protect a person who is having a seizure, or perform other special tasks.
Service animals are working animals, not pets.
A Little About Service Dogs

Service dogs are trained to help someone with a physical disability. They are trained in about 90 commands and are able to assist their partner at home, work, school, while shopping, in a restaurant, or anywhere else their partner may go in order to help that person be more independent.

The typical working life of a service dog is eight years, though some dogs may choose to work past 10. Throughout their lives and especially during their working years it is essential that these dogs receive physical exercise and mental stimulation outside of their work duties. At home when the gear is removed he becomes a member of the family, just like any other dog. Service dogs enjoy playing, lounging, tummy rubs and all the other things pet dogs enjoy.
You can find out more about this subject on the internet or at the public library.
