Digger, the Service Dog
Hope Saxton, illustrator
“Digger, the Service Dog” is a passive invite to become a part of a teaching moment in the interaction between the public and Working Animals and their handlers. My context goal was to engender a mother-like approach to teaching both children and adults alike how to observe Working Animals for possible interaction. We are typically aware of Blind and Deaf Dogs in public, but how many are aware that small dogs are fully capable of being Service Dogs? This is the book that helps break down those bariers as well as intoducing the 5 Finger Rule to public knowledge.
