Many of us love our furry dog friends. We love the companionship. While you love having your pet around, there are some school students who depend on these animals as medical equipment.

 Service dogs are dogs that are trained tasks in order to help their handlers. These dogs can be trained to do anything from heart rate alert to awakening their handlers during night terrors or calming them down during panic attacks.

  Service dogs attending school is becoming something that has more common as schools are becoming more inforimed with the ADA (Americans with disabilities act) law, a law that protects americans with disabilities, including service dogs and their handlers.

 While these teams are a different sight to see inside of school, nothing has changed. There are dogs in some schools yes, but it’s not anything big.
