East Park Elementary School Learns About Services Dogs Through 'Paws 4 People'

Posted: Updated:

Second grade students at East Park Elementary School have been learning about service dogs.

Thursday they were able to see what service dogs do thanks to "Paws 4 People".

Alex Keefover, his mother Jen, and Kingsley were at the school to show how the dog helps Alex each day.

Jen Keefover said it's important for children to know how to interact with service dogs.

"I want to let them know if you see a service dog don't just walk up to them and start petting him. always ask the handler first. That's the number one rule," Jen Keefover said.

"Paws 4 People" is a non-profit organization that serves those with disabilities as well as our countries veterans.
