Hero Service Dogs

Written by Jennifer Boothroyd

There are many kinds of service dogs whose sole purpose is to be of assistance to humans. Whether they are guide dogs, hearing dogs, or medical response dogs, they all have been trained to provide help with love, loyalty and dedication. In this book, each of these types of dogs is explained. It is amazing how clever, such opening doors or turning on lights, and smart, such alerting to allergens or sensing emergencies, these dogs are. The book also explains what breeds of dogs make the best service dogs in each area. At the end there is a history of service dogs and the top service dog. The back includes a glossary, further reading, and index. With high energy designs, exciting photos and fun text, this book brings these hero service dogs to life.
