PAWS 4 LIfe Visit

Posted on

After reading about Rosie in Rosie, A Visiting Dog’s Story, we wanted to learn more about service dogs and therapy dogs.  So, Mrs. Fraher invited PAWS 4 Life to talk to us.  They are an organization that rescues dogs from the pound and shelter.  They then train the dogs along with their owners to become service dogs.  

Check out their visit.

Service dogs save people’s lives.  Therapy dogs make people happy.  Dogs are very important in our lives.

Do you own a dog?  What does your dog do for you?

PAWS 4 Life Visits Room 207

We read a book called “Rosie, A Visiting Dog’s Story” by Stephanie Calmenson.   Mrs. Fraher wanted us to connect to the story so she invited actual therapy and service dogs for us to see.  Our class had a visit from PAWS 4 Life. An organization that trains dogs to be service dogs or therapy dogs.  Did you know there is a difference?  They brought three dogs to show us what they do.  We were very impressed!


A service dog has an important job. The service dog does jobs like helping their owners walk, get stuff, and open doors for them. A service dog is more serious than a therapy dog. If you ever spot a service dog at work in a store or any other place, don’t pet it.

A Therapy Dog makes kids that are queasy or friendless feel better and make them cackle.  Therapy Dogs can get stroked while working.  They do it also to assist their trainers and other people.  They do it because the trainer might be depressed.  They inspire the society.
