Skilled Companion Dogs

Skilled Companion Dogs have many of the same skills as Service Dogs. They are usually placed with children with physical disabilities who are not able to verbally give commands. The third member of the team is a parent or caregiver who verbally gives the commands to the dog and helps to facilitate the interaction between the dog and child.
