A Facility Dog is one that is trained to be polite and well-mannered to everyone they meet. They are trained in the same manner as a service dog, though they are usually placed in nursing homes, assisted living, mental health and juvenile detention facilities. They are dogs that love people and visiting, and have warm, sensitive, and social personalities. They are great ambassadors and ‘visit’ with the residents and visitors alike.
