Most of us have ordinary dogs. Of course we each think our dog is special, and they are, but there are some dogs that have been trained to do some pretty cool things.
For example, did you know that dogs have been trained to detect cancer by sniffing?
And that other dogs have been trained to give a signal when their person is about to have a seizure?
Dogs can soothe Alzheimer’s patients with their presence, reducing their emotional flare-ups and aggression.
Similarly, they can help people with post-traumatic stress disorder to feel calmer.
Service dogs can also help those with diabetes, autism and rheumatoid arthritis.
