OTs and service dogs specialize in helping people to live their lives as independently as possible. The purpose of this study was to determine if a program combining service-dog education and information about careers in OT would improve understanding of service dogs and increase knowledge and peak interest in OT careers for 7th through 12th grade students. The Professor Paws Project model of combining service-dog education with OT career education is a successful model.
