Putting the International in Assistance Dog Week

Since Assistance Dog Week went international last year, we’ve seen growing interest, with events in a number of countries.
On Facebook we have likes from people in 20 different countries. While the US has the largest contingent, Ireland, Canada, the UK, Australia, Finland, Taiwan, Sweden and other countries show growing numbers of fans. From Perth to Vancouver, Tapei to Cork, Helenski to Boston, we’re so happy to see more and more people honoring assistance dogs.
