A woman suffering from diabetes got so addicted to her job that she forgot to check her sugar levels. Her blood sugar dropped to dangerous levels. There is an animal companion who has a great sense of smell and can detect dangers. She is her dog. She gently touches the mistress’s ankle and gives her an alarm.

A dog is considered to be a person’s best friend. However, service dogs can often assist their owners with tasks that even a best friend could not do.

People in the United States are assisted by approximately 500,000 service dogs. The United States Disability Act (ADA) requires service dogs to be allowed access to their owners wherever they are sent. This allows disabled people to live independently and can solve everyday problems.

Service dogs are able to help visually impaired people navigate unfamiliar areas, save their owners from an attack, calm post-traumatic stress disorder sufferers, and even wake them up if they have had a nightmare.

170 countries have enacted civil rights laws similar to the ADA for people with disabilities. Many of these include rules for service dogs. Mongolia is one of these countries.

Linda Ball, the head of Paw PADS, a Minnesota non-profit, will travel to Mongolia in the fall with one of the service dog. Information about service animals is important. Despite the fact that there are laws in place for the disabled, they are not widely available. Linda only knows of one such dog, which provides visual assistance for a US Embassy staffer.

She hopes to change the system and create a Mongolian service dog program that can serve as a model for others. She said that she would explain to people with disabilities the importance of service dogs during her trip.
