Mark your calendars, dog lovers…International Assistance Dog Week starts this Sunday, August 4th!
IADW was created to recognize all the wonderful assistance dogs who help make life a little easier for people with disability-related limitations.
According to the official IADW website, assistance dogs help humans with both physical and mental disabilities by serving as devoted companions, helpers, aides, best friends, and family members!
The event organizers also work to recognize all the dedicated folks who raise and train puppies to become assistance dogs.
Be sure to check out the IADW website for lots of great information on the work assistance dogs do, as well as how you can participate in this annual awareness event!
