International Assistance Dog Week (August 7-13)

“Paws” and mark your calendar! Next week, August 7-13, is International Assistance Dog Week! During this special week, we recognize hardworking service/assistance dogs and all their contributions.

According to the IADW site, the goals of the week are the following:

  • Recognize and honor assistance dogs
  • Raise awareness and educate the public about assistance dogs
  • Honor puppy trainers and raisers
  • Recognize heroic deeds performed by assistance dogs in our communities

Now is a great time to brush up on service dog etiquette too! Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll show the service dog team respect and courtesy.
