Penn State's club Roar for More, a branch of the Susquehanna Service Dogs, allows students to train labrador retriever puppies to become service dogs. The "raisers" spend about 18 months with the dogs, taking them to weekly training classes run by Dr. Nancy Dreschel, a Penn State animal sciences professor. The program trains these dogs to one day provide a great service to the community. The dogs go on to be emotional support dogs, with many of them helping people with PTSD or other emotional trauma. A lot of people just see the students walking puppies around on campus and think of how great it is they get to have a dog, but really these students are putting in a lot of time to train the puppies, who they will one day have to let go for a greater purpose.
