Not All Dogs Become Service Dogs

Blog

Not all the dogs in Susquehanna Service Dogs' program become service dogs. Although every dog starts on the same path, only 50-60% of them become working service dogs.

They must be able to handle the stress of working in public. And most of all, they must enjoy service dog work.

“Never before has the world had a document that so eloquently unites ethics and environmental stewardship. That is why Laudato Si was the most significant environmental event of 2015.”

“Show your work.”

Does that bring you back to your high school math class in a hurry? That phrase was a near-daily refrain in mine. It didn’t matter if you intuitively, or by sheer luck, got a math problem right. You also had to offer a proof as well. You had to back it up.
