Nick News Premiers Good Dog
Spotlight on kids and service dogs
Jeff Glazer and Riley appear in Good Dog

Nick News With Linda Ellerbee premiered a special that highlights the role of service dogs in the lives of children. The show Good Dog explores the relationship between children and their service dogs. Whether the dog reaches items that they cannot, allows them to handle socially stressful situations, prevents them from wandering off, alerts them to the presence of a life-threatening allergen in food, or serves as their ears, eyes, hands, or legs, service dogs make their lives better.

 
The dogs help them be independent, unafraid, confident, safe and happy depending on the individual child’s needs. It’s beautiful when a child is able to do something because of a service dog that would otherwise be impossible. We all know that to touch the life of a child is to touch the future, and a service dog is capable of doing that in ways that people can’t. Good dog.
 
It will soon be possible to view the entire show Good Dog on Nick.com.
