To promote public awarness through education, showcasing the talents these dogs have to allow a new degree of independence in their partners lives. During 2015, (11) dogs were placed with children with autism, (2) dog was placed as a diabetic service dog, (22) dogs were placed with veterans suffering from ptsd, physical or mobility problems.

College level courses are being taught with 10-14 service dogs each semester in combination with the leadership and social work divisions on wartburg's college campus in waverly, ia. Students are matched with dogs in training and sometimes recipients to help with basic training and social integration. The courses are designed to allow the students a hands-on learning approach towards their future degree. Each student/dog pair is required to participate in a community involvement project with their dogs. Some of the projects have been wheel chair basketball tournaments, hospital and nursing home visits, elementary class incorporation, calendar designs with the dogs, public speaking, and video productions.

Learning with animal assisted activities is a rfi program that is built to enhance reading time, focus, and comprehension through the use of service dogs in training. Learning with animal assisted activities provides assistance to children with special needs, behavioral issues, reading, general learning, and to reduce levels of anxiety. Currently rfi operates this program in west cedar elementary, lsi/bremwood, st. paul elementary, multiple libraries, and directly out of the rfi facility. More locations continue to ask for program expansion. Each of the programs are tied together with a licensed teacher that works to combine the dogs with the students. The results on some of the reading programs have been documented over the past year, and are exceptional
