Trained dogs serve as emotional support in stressful situations. Humans and dogs share a special bond.
#3 Seizure Assist Dogs
Seizure Assist Dogs provide an improved quality of life by alerting
their owner up to an hour before an oncoming seizure.
#4 Ride on Trains
There are around 35,000 stray dogs in Moscow. To make their way around the large city, these street-wise dogs have learnt how to board, ride and depart the subway.
#5 Canine Cancer Detection Dogs
Humans mainly experience the world with their eyes, while dogs sense it with their nose. Having a 1000 to 10,000 times better-smelling sense than humans, dogs can smell things we cannot, like Cancer.
#6 Helping the Blind
When humans can not see, they often need the help of a trained dog, known as a guide dog. But how do guide dogs help people who have limited vision?
#7 Dogs are Smart
Border collies, Poodles, and German shepherds are in the top 20% of the most intelligent dog breeds. They can recognise up to 250 words which is more than the 165 that an average 2 and a half-year-old child knows.
#8 Hearing Assist Dogs
Clever dogs are trained to transform the lives of people with hearing difficulties. Hearing Assist Dogs alert their companions to the sound of a phone ring, alarm clock, doorbell, fire alarm, cries and more.
#9 Herding Dogs
During training, a stock dog’s natural instinct to prey on animals is honed to give the dog the new skill of herding.
#10 Search & Rescue Dogs
Search and Rescue Dogs are assigned to locate missing people in disastrous situations like explosions, earthquakes, fire and snowstorms.
#11 Sniffer Dogs
A sniffer dog is trained to identify things like illegal drugs, electronic devices, blood, currency and explosives. They can sense between 30,000 to 100,000 different smells. Isn’t that amazing?
