More and more individuals with disabilities are choosing to enhance their lives by utilizing the services of assistance dogs. Marcie Davis, a paraplegic for over 30 years, made this choice more than thirteen years ago bringing Ramona and later Morgan into her life. These service dogs, a type of assistance dog trained to help individuals with mobility limitations, transformed her life, enabling her to pursue her dreams. Working Like Dogs captures personal stories from Davis and other assistance dog recipients while also offering checklists and practical tips to provide the reader with an A-Z guide about service dogs. It is a must read for anyone who is considering a service dog, has a service dog, is raising or is responsible for the care of a service dog, as well as all dog lovers who want to connect with the power of the human-animal service dog partnership. Extensive appendices include References, Service Dog Resources and Training, Behavior, and Performance Standards for Service Dogs.

A nice story on what she went through to get a service dog. Unfortunately it shows the US based system and the Canadian system is different.
