Announcing the Sunday Service Dog Blog Hop - to be held on Sunday, September 29

Next Sunday, September 29, my pals Oz the Terrier and Carma Poodale and I will host the Sunday Service Dog Blog Hop.  

The purpose of this blog hop is to educate people about service dogs, therapy dogs, and emotional support animals, and the very important and very different roles they play.  It can be confusing, so my mom wrote a post to try to help people understand the differences -- Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, & Emotional Support Animals - Important Differences.     

Please join us for the blog hop, by posting, linking your post, and/or visiting and sharing the posts.  You don't have to be a service dog, therapy dog, or emotional support animal to participate -- everyone is welcome to join us in sharing information.

Because I'm a therapy dog, I will be posting primarily about therapy dogs.  I plan to post responses to Frequently Asked Questions about therapy dogs.  

What questions do you have about therapy dogs?  Please share your questions in the comments below then check back during the blog hop for my responses.

I hope you have a fabulous Sunday!!!


  1. Garth you look wonderful in your jacket. Where do you do your therapy work? Have a serene Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh, this is a Pawsome idea!!! Let's question is: how often do you do your therapy work, and where. Do you work with other doggies, or do you work alone. Do you work with shrunken humans, or regular size peeps? Okays, so that was more than one question!! BOL Hey, a pup wants to know, ya know?!

  3. This is such a wonderful blog hop! I have been thinking about getting Spencer certified as a therapy dog for some time and am excited to see posts on it. Also, my dad won a service dog back in '94 who helped him since he was in a wheelchair. It was amazing how many people never heard of service dogs for anything other then as a seeing eye dog.

  4. Great Idea for blog hop! I wish I could participate but too bad I'm not certified :/

    1. You don't have to be a service dog or therapy dog or emotional support animal to participate. Oz is not, and he is one of our hosts! You can participate by just asking questions or sharing our posts if you don't want to do a post yourself.

  5. Good you mentioned the service dog thing, I thought you won a golf tournament and got the green jacket! Seriously, I think it is a great idea for a blog hop. Service dogs do so many wonderful things and I don't think a lot of people know what a service dog is or what they do. Hope it gets a huge response!
