Photo Pupdate: Opening Doors



Opening doors of various weight and tension is a valuable skill for service dogs paired with individuals with mobility-related disabilities. Where round doorknobs can present a problem because of turning, modified lever-type doorknobs may be installed so the dog's tugging-down pull motion opens the latch.

Ruby's skills will include closing the doors, too. Good job, Roo!

As always, big thanks to Sue for the photos.
