A friend mentioned "facility dog" the other day and, while I admit I'm not well versed in the specifics, I responded that it sounded like a glorified therapy dog. This is in no way meant to downsize the importance of therapy dogs, but based in his description it sounded like a combo of a therapy and service dog. He said that facility dogs were trained to do nothing but sit and provide comfort to those with anxiety. He also said that they were allowed everywhere. I am learning about therapy dogs since Dakota will become one. And I learned a little about service dogs through this forum as well as through a prior question I posted. But I've never heard of a facility dog. Thoughts?
