WATCH: Bliss, Hudson, Bud and Tim graduate as service dogs

On the day dedicated to persons with a disability, commemorated last week, four dogs graduated as service dogs. Bliss, Hudson and Bud were trained as service dogs for persons with autism, while Tim as a service dog for diabetic persons. The dogs were dressed in a blue waistcoat to start a new phase in their lives.

Joanne Cremona from Service Dogs Malta Foundation told TVM that training for the dogs started when they were still puppies.

She added that during training, experts note the best characteristics of the dogs and then assign them to assist in different conditions of the individual. “As we start noticing their inclination, then specific training start together with family matching”.

Parliamentary Secretary for Persons with Disability, Anthony Agius Decelis, emphasized the importance of therapy that these dogs offer and the foundation’s work in the sector.
