Program Assistance Dogs
Program Assistance Dogs go to work with and assist full-time professionals such as teachers, counselors, physicians, and other health care providers who work with people with various disabilities and challenges. These dogs can provide a calming effect, allowing the professional to better serve or treat the clients. These dogs do not have public access except when accompanying the professionals and their disabled clients in order to provide assistance to the clients.
