Canine Assistants is an organization based in Georgia. They match disabled individuals with a Service Dog to help mitigate the disability. This video follows a group of recipients during and after a "training camp." The recipients range from small children to adults.
What is so right about this video is that it shows the ups and downs of owning a SD. Many people think that it must be easy and fun to have a SD, and this video shows that that is not always the case. Some of the match-ups are wonderful, and others don't work out. In each case Canine Assistants is there to help their recipients and dogs find the best possible resolution.
This is a great video, and it is appealing to all audiences, whether you are disabled or not.

This is an incredible look at service dogs, the people who train them, and the people they help. The bond between humans and dogs is incredible and this shows that taken to it's furthest levels.
If you love dogs you'll love this movie, and if you train dogs this is a must-see.

First saw this show on public television. So many people do not understand the many roles service animals provide for persons with disabilities. A great learning tool.

At first I wasn't really sure what to expect from this documentary. I have known through the years of owning a dog the things that they do and the benefits that you get as their owner. Seeing this video made me realize more that they do more than the tricks... that they will become an integral part of your life and will establish a bond that will stay (forever). I recommend watching this documentary.

My husband and I are still wiping our tears dry. Dogs are truly some of God's angels here on earth.

Great DVD, I really enjoy it. I watch it quite often, I am disabled and use to have a Service Dog. I am looking to get a new one soon so I enjoy seeing these things out there as well as books on Service Dogs,

The technical aspects of the video itself were fine. I do enjoy PBS documentaries. But I don't want the public to believe that this is the norm for assistance dog training. I was alarmed to see these poorly trained young dogs representing service dogs as a whole. I couldn't believe these dogs were considered to be ready for placement. It was shocking to watch these large puppies turned loose to romp in a room full of disabled adults and children. One mother tried to pull her son out of the way before two dogs ran over him.

As compared to Canine Assistants, many other organizations use outside puppy-raisers. This policy allows the puppies better socialization and adaptability to a home setting, but it also offers the trainers a bit of emotional distance from the dogs. Some dogs don't make the cut into final training in other organizations. According to Canine Assistant's website, however, few of their dogs are rejected. In this video, we meet Nala, a dog who demonstrates the necessity to be objective. As a nervous animal, she should never have made it into a training program. Having raised and trained her since she was born, perhaps her trainers let their affection for her cloud their judgement. Ironically, the dog whose placement was disrupted after a few weeks is the cover-dog for this video.

It's a dog training-wreck. Watch as a dog who is supposedly ready for placement fails his command to open a door. You'll see every single dog that is paired on the first day fail to respond to a single command. You can watch as a dog that is supposedly trained to work with someone in a wheelchair continually switches sides as they stroll through a mall. My sincerest hope is that no one is injured by one of these half-trained animals.

I am disappointed that PBS didn't do a little more research.

This is a charming file about how dogs can make a great difference in the lives of humans. I learned about how to work with a dog through positive reinforcement. And see through a dogs eyes
