Wednesday, April 21 at 8 p.m. – Through a Dog's Eyes

(Rochester, NY) Each year, hundreds of people find hope through a handful of organizations across the country that train assistance dogs for people with disabilities. Through a Dog’s Eyes, airing Wednesday, April 21 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/ cable 1011 and 11), follows the journey of recipients as they go through the heartwarming and sometimes difficult process of receiving and becoming acclimated to a dog. Jennifer Arnold, founder of one of the nation’s largest service dog organizations, Canine Assistants, details her unique teaching methods, giving viewers an intimate look at the canine-recipient matching process. The program offers inspiring, hopeful stories that show how dogs can affect everyone’s life and how with a little patience and a lot of love, an “ordinary” dog can show how extraordinary he or she can become.
