To get spotted: Send Abby a question here.
A follower asks: "Does your service dog go with you everywhere?"
Abby responds to her follower in the video below about "Annie," our autistic service dog.
Also, to clarify, there is a difference between a therapy dog and a service dog - and Annie has been both!. Even Abby gets these terms confused!
- Service Dog: a dog that has been trained to do specific jobs or chores to assist it's owner with a problematic task or behavior.
- Therapy Dog: a dog that has been trained to accompany a specific handler on trips to visit people in need of comfort and love. Therapy dogs often visit hospitals, senior centers, and juvenile detention centers.
