Service Dogs: How They Can Help Improve Your Health

45 - Service Animals

For many years, service animals—especially canines—have helped those with various disabilities. But did you know that such service animals can do so much more? Amazingly they can:

  • Keep track of your blood sugar level
  • Warn you of impending issues
  • Pick up, move or retrieve household items
  • Play a considerable role in treatment for veterans and others with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

 
In this Fight Back episode, Michelle Williams, Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator for Canine Companions, and Stefanie Lund, a volunteer breeder of service canines, explore why service animals are man’s best friends. From the breeding and training of canine companions to the laws governing their identification and purposes, we cover it and more.
