 Here’s something to smile about – hero pups dressed up as PAW Patrol characters to put smiles on kids faces!

As part of International Dog Day, and the release of the latest PAW Patrol movie Jet to the Rescue, Assistance Dogs Australia got a little makeover.

The dogs took part in drills that would help them take on some very important missions.

They assisted a large number of kids living with autism, people with physical disabilities and veterans and first responders living with PTSD.

In order for an Assistance Dogs to graduate and become heroes in the community, they are first required to complete a number of key tasks including opening and closing doors, drawers, pressing the button at the traffic lights, taking the washing out of the machine, paying the cashier at the shops and alert bark if their owner is in danger.

“Similar to that of PAW Patrol, our Assistance Dogs play an extremely important real life role in helping some of our most vulnerable, with a staggering 1 in 5 Australians living with a disability,” Richard Lord, CEO of Assistance Dogs Australia, said.

“We wouldn’t be able to turn our pups into the heroes they are today without our volunteer puppy educators who selflessly donate their home and their time to help raise a well-mannered pup and get them ready for their next stage of training.”
