Service animals are individually trained to perform tasks and do work that mitigate their handlers’ disabilities. Service animals are much more than highly trained companions. Working as part of a team with their human partners, service animals help them attain the safety and independence from which their handlers’ disabilities would otherwise limit them.
Many are not aware of the problems that using a fake service dog can cause, but those who are disabled understand the issue. This has been a problem for many years, and is only getting worse. Fake service dogs reflect a bad image for the real ones, and “discriminate against or restrict access to disabled persons” (Colman). The recurring problem of these fake service dogs is well known to such a small percentage of the population, it is difficult to create a stable solution that will be effective for a long period of time.
Service dogs are very helpful. They are specially trained to help people with disabilities or that have lost body parts such as an arms, or legs. They also can be trained to smell if you have diabetes. Another, way that service dogs can help us is that if you have anxiety, with being crowded than a service dog can help you by taking your mind off of what is going on around us. Those are several ways that service dogs can help those with disabilities.
Service dogs save lives, they are trained to carry out tasks for their owners among other things. They are crucial for people whom have medical problems. In the peer-reviewed article: Service Dog Training Program for Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress in Service Members. Relates how Rick Yount, a social worker was inspired by his golden retriever pup to create the GRAD program. During the program, trained dogs helped at-risk teens to develop social and emotional skills. Such programs are an effective way to treat medical symptoms without actual medicine, such as pills and so on. Besides that, these dogs are highly skilled service dogs capable of giving social support and mobility assistance to enhance their owner’s quality of live (Yount, Olmert and Lee
Corgis, Pomeranians, Saint Bernards, and Labrador Retrievers. What do all of these furry friends have in common? They can all be a part of a group known as therapy dogs. Therapy dogs are specially trained dogs who can help a variety of people in different settings. Imagine one day you are in a crowded area and all of a sudden you can't breath and are panicking because there are so many people around you. A therapy dog could help you in this situation by walking around you and clearing a path as you walk. Therapy dogs can also help people who suffer from physical disabilities such as impaired seeing or someone who is likely to have seizures. In John Ensminger's book Service and Therapy Dogs in American Society he states that, "Some dogs appear to detect physiological
“Everyone makes mistakes in life but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they 're human.” (Lovethispic) Second chances mean an opportunity to start over and come clean again. Second chances may not sound pleasant, but sometimes it pays off. In my opinion, I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I take that back, I think people only deserve a second chance if they are willing to work towards it. Say for example, someone did something really bad to her best friend and then they just walk away from it. Then I would not want to give them a second chance because the person is not willing to work toward it, they’re just walking away
They can help people with balance issues from falling or help by cushioning their fall, Help a blind person cross the road, help someone with PTSD to finally get out of the house, Help someone with dementia or mental illness to take their medicine, and many more heroic behaviors. Any dog can become a service animal if they go through training. Any breed of dog can become a service animal too. All types of dogs are eligible to become services dogs, each potentially providing a different type of service. Service dog laws do not include dog breed restrictions or weight discrimination (“Service Dog Requirements”, 2017). These animals have many rights such by law you can not exclude a service animal from any establishment. “State and local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that serve the public generally must allow service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas of the facility where the public is normally allowed to go” (“ADA Requirements”, 2011). The only exception to this rule is if one of these animals would hinder a sterile environment. To elaborate on this, a service animal is allowed to go into a hospital, but they can not
Imagine you are at your desk at school doing your schoolwork. While you’re sitting there your furry little pet is sitting in your lap. Even if you don’t have a pet you could be petting your friends pet. Wouldn’t this be great if it were true? Pets should be allowed in school and as classroom pets because, they can show affection towards students to help student’s education, it could make students feel more at home, and students wouldn't be so stressed all the time.
As I drive around Phoenix with my puppy best friends, Sophie and Paco, there is not a single worry in the world for us. Sophie, with her long, brown, sun kissed fur, bobs her head out the car window as she enjoys the fresh breeze flowing through her fur. Paco rests his little head on the window that is halfway rolled down, as his wet tongue absorbs the wind. On our weekly car rides, my best friends and I pass by a building that has signs with dogs and cats all over. This building is a shelter for animals that are not so fortunate like my two furry friends. This place is called the Arizona Humane Society. The Arizona Humane Society is an outstanding organization for different animals that provides health, home, and love to animals that await

Millions of lives just as innocent as the most generous child; Trapped in the barriers we know as cages, that they know as Hell; Too many lives for humanity to just be a bystander. Each and every day is filled with a million moments and opportunities for us to take a stand and make a change. Animal shelters around the world are constantly filling with new animals; it is simply too much for the small amounts of staff on their own to make sure every animal gets the love they deserve, as well as making sure the shelter is kept tidy and operating. Animal shelters need us, young and old, even if only for an hour. That small span of time can make the world for them; volunteering assures that animals will get daily love, lowers full-time staff stress,

We all want the best for our kids; it is obvious that owning a dog has never-ending positive impacts on a child’s life.
