Meet the “Wonder Dogs”
Service dogs are some of our favorite wonder dogs.

It’s no secret that in addition to being great companions, dogs are our willing and generous collaborators, doing jobs that make our lives safer and easier. As Barbara Robertson observes in “Wonder Dogs” in the upcoming issue, “They’re more than our best friends, they’re our partners. For millennia, dogs have lived and worked at our sides, helping us in ways too numerous to count.” In the soon-to-be-posted story, Robertson reports on the new jobs people are finding for dogs, jobs that take advantage of their exceptional sensory skills as well as their intrinsic good nature and willingness to partner with us in whatever activity we elect to engage in. Though it’s the most recent entry in the list, “Wonder Dogs” isn’t the first we’ve published on our hard-working companions. Click here for more stories from our archives.
