A service dog is a type of assistance dog specifically trained to help people who have disabilities, such as visual impairment, hearing impairments, mental illnesses (such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)), seizure disorder, mobility impairment, and diabetes.


In a vividly illustrated story, young readers are introduced to Digger, the Service Dog and his story allows them to understand the role animals that help and working dogs play in society. Hope Saxton shares her experience that endears pets and children as well as pets and parents!
