“An assistance animal (dog) is trained support designed to facilitate the participation of people with disability in accessing various aspects of personal and public life. They are sometimes mistaken as a pet but provide an essential function for some people with a disability”.
For people with physical disabilities, dogs are able to assist with a variety of tasks, including:
“A Physical Disability Service Dog has full public access rights meaning they are allowed in any public place and on all public transport. It is illegal to refuse entry to a Service Dog. The only exceptions are zoos, aquariums, sterile environments, food preparation areas and quarantine areas.”
Whilst the practical assistance these dogs can offer can be incredibly valuable, one can never underestimate the power & benefit of just the relationship between the person & the dog. For many, the joy of just sitting with your dog with their head in your lap is enough!
