CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - It's Disability Awareness Month and DeSales University is recognizing the occasion by educating the public about service dogs.

Trainers and animals from Susquehanna Service Dogs visited the campus Wednesday.

The visit gave students, faculty, and staff a chance to meet the dogs and learn about the vigorous training they go through.

“People are always thanking us for what we do and my comment is that I have received more than I have ever given in this opportunity,” said Susquehanna Service Dogs Trainer Betsy Smith.

The event was organized by local grad student Shelby Schinstine.

She's a trainer and says she hopes the event will help people understand proper etiquette around working dogs.
