Student's best friend

Cove School seeking therapeutic service dog

(Continued)

The school is seeking to raise the money through grants and donations. The Cove’s fifth-grade student council started a “Paws for a Cause” fund-raising campaign in which students and families can buy a “dog paw” for $1.

As the person who will become the dog’s owner, Bent will undergo a week of training at the NEADS campus in Princeton, Mass. The dog will live with Bent, who lives in Amesbury with her husband and five children.

“It’s a pretty big responsibility,” she said. “The dog will work during the day, and just like humans it will need down time and to feel part of a family.”
