The two groups that I am involved with and have decided to promote a special day are in the process of deciding to go with Service Dog Awareness Day or Assistance Dog Awareness Day.

So far the majority seem to want Assistance Dog as that takes in Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs, and Service Dogs as many organizations and individuals around the world refer to this type of working dog. I myself also use the term Assistance for the whole and then break it down into guide, hearing, and service.

I just wanted to update those who are interested here that there is a movement going on for a special awareness day and it seems that the people who got the motion going are GSD owners and handlers. Several from this forum included. But of course the interest was picked up by our friends who use other breeds.
