Why Service Dogs Matter
If you have never seen the impacts that a service dog can have, you may wonder about the importance of service dogs today. Though many people are familiar with guide dogs and their ability to help blind people navigate, not everyone is aware of the wide array of skills a dog can learn and how many people they can help. Indeed, service dogs are not only limited to performing life-saving tasks such as alerting someone with diabetes to dangerously low blood sugar or calling 911 if someone falls – they can also increase life satisfaction, physical health, psychosocial health, and overall well-being.
**We are honored to collaborate with Atlas Assistance Dogs, an organization dedicated to expanding access to service dogs, to bring you this educational post. Their commitment to empowering individuals with disabilities through positive and ethical training methods has provided invaluable insights that shape the information you're about to read.
