A Service Dog's Story: "Piki Goes to College" with author Joan Hellquist

Have you ever wondered what kind of training a dog receives to become a Service Dog? In Piki Goes to College, we meet the lovable Piki (rhymes with sneaky), a mischievous and captivating shelter dog who finds a special purpose with a new life learning the important job of assisting an owner with a disability. Author Joan M. Hellquist pairs this endearing picture book with beautiful painterly illustrations and information about Service Dogs and the Americans with Disabilities Act.This heartfelt story of a dog’s journey from a shelter to a home, aiding people with diabetes or arthritis, autism or traumatic brain injury, balance problems or hearing loss, among others, will shine a light on the importance of these gentle and smart dogs.

Join us as author Joan M. Hellquist shares Piki Goes to College accompanied with Piki herself in this entertaining and informative tale. Children and their caregivers attending this event will leave with their own Piki Goes to College bookmark as well as the opportunity to meet Piki.
