A Visit from A Service Dog

Main Photo
Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-graders in Patricia Woods’ class learned about the multiple jobs of service dogs when two representatives from the Smithtown-based Guide Dog Foundation visited their class.

The presenters spoke about how the puppies are raised, the type of training they go through to become service dogs and how they can be assigned to assist both visually impaired individuals as well as American veterans. Wanting to help the organization with its mission, the students proudly presented the visitors with a monetary donation as well as homemade dog treats.
