A service dog is placed with an individual who has a physical disability and can work with his or her dog independently. Service dogs perform practical tasks, such as opening and closing doors for their handlers, turning light switches on and off, picking up things from the floor, pulling a wheelchair, and even carrying a purse or a bag. In addition, service dogs can be specifically trained to retrieve objects such as a phone! Service dogs can even be trained to take off a handler's socks or coat. Service dogs are certified (tested) to prove that they can behave well in public and can follow instructions.
