Perfect amount of info for an introductionReview by JGPark
I found this micro-learning course to be the perfect amount of info. It did define a service animal early on, specifying the difference between a service and a comfort animal. It also gave adequate examples of tasks that service animals can be trained to do without attempting to create an exhaustive list (an exclusive list would be impossible). It also mentioned a provision in a side-bar about the use of miniature horses as a service animal - despite the legal definition of a service animal being a dog. Finally, the unit on mobility devices was particularly helpful and new information for me. (Posted on 2/13/2018)
Not enough informationReview by Jillpark
This is not useful in really describing what a service animal versus a comfort animal is, what other than dogs can be a service animal, specific tasks of such, and also specifics about mobility devices. The click on-click off isn't that effective either. (Posted on 11/14/2017)
