THE USE OF WORKING, ASSISTANCE AND SERVICE DOGS

 

ResearchBreeder.com® strongly supports the training and use of dogs by humans, whose lives are enriched by dogs’ performing essential services. Dogs provide a wide variety of valuable services including: handicapped assistance dogs; drug, bomb, and arson detection dogs; and tracking dogs to locate missing persons and fugitives. RBC opposes those who seek to define the assistance and service that dogs provide to humans as exploitative. RBC encourages the continuation and further development of the use of dogs for these and similar purposes. RBC supports the right of persons who require a dog to perform essential services to be permitted to keep a dog without regard to the dog’s size, phenotype or breed.
