Let’s All Celebrate the Helping, Healing Power of Dogs
Mark your calendars and grab your leash. It’s time
for International Assistance Dog Week 2013. The worldwide event kicks off Sunday,
August 4 and runs through Saturday, August 10.
During International Assistance Dog Week, organizations and
communities around the world will honor the efforts of millions of devoted,
tireless canine workers. Canines who can make a difference in
people’s lives and communities. The event’s goal is to raise awareness and
educate the public about the growing number of ways these specially trained
animals are serving the least fortunate in our communities.
Whether it’s helping a blind man safely navigate busy
streets or letting neighbors know that its owner needs immediate help,
assistance dogs transform the
daily lives of those coping with debilitating or life-threatening conditions. They
happily serve as trusted companion, helper, aide, best friend, and family
There are three basic categories of assistance dogs:
In addition to honoring the assistance dogs themselves,
International Assistance Dog Week celebrates the efforts of puppy raisers and
International Assistance Dog Week was the brainchild of Marcie Davis, a paraplegic and CEO of
Davis Innovations, a consulting firm based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A longtime
assistance dog owner herself, Davis is the author of Working
Like Dogs: The Service Dog Guidebook, an “A to Z” resource of
personal stories, checklists, and tips.
