I've read about it a couple times but unfortunately I don't think it is very common. It's a fantastic program.

It's becoming increasingly common...I just found out that my county has one. 8) And we're not real big...but Baltimore county apparently doesn't have one! lol

I think it's a great idea. I know CCI does a lot of dogs such as this.

I think that is a wonderful thing! My Precious would have been perfect for that. She was the best at knowing when someone was upset. Travis called her his rubbing stone.

This would be a perfect job for many failed service dogs I've met.
