Imagine not being able to reach a light switch, pick up keys when you drop them, or open a table drawer. Then imagine having a dog that could do all of that and more for you.

As well as being great fun for everyone, dogs can help people with physical disabilities. Dogs can be trained to pick up fallen objects, open doors, and turn on and off lights.

Dogs can also help people who are deaf or have difficulties with hearing. Hearing dogs can alert their owners by touch when they hear different sounds. They can be trained to recognize sounds such as the telephone, a baby`s cries. knock at the door, an alarm clock, or a name. Dogs can even indicate witch direction the sound comes from.

Guide dogs can help owners who are blind or difficulties with seeing. Actually, it`s not the owner who guides the dog. For example, dogs cannot actually read traffic lights the owner decides when to cross the street by listening to the sounds of lights or cars. Howerver, the guide dog will not cross the street if it sees danger.

When I was a child, we had a dog named doggy.  She laid three puppies.  When we moved to a new region, she didn't want to go with us.  She liked to stay at old place.  I like dogs.

hi Tiago,

Actually these dogs that help the blind are called seeing dogs and the ones that help the deaf are the hearing dogs and finally, there are the assistant dogs, they "work " in hospitals or are companions. Anyway, they are all called service dogs.
