What Can A Dog Do For A Person Who Is Disabled?

A service dog can do many tasks, depending on the person’s disability. A dog guide is the eyes for its blind handler, taking the handler around obstacles. A hearing dog alerts the handler to sounds, a Seizure Alert/Response dog responds when the handler has a seizure, and a Mobility Assist Dog (also called a Service Dog), is the arms and legs for a disabled person. A psychiatric service dog keeps a person with an psychiatric disorder calm and able to be going to out in public. There are many things a dog can do. And it’s amazing how empowering these animals can be for those in need.
