BURLINGTON, Mass. – August 6-12 is International Assistance Dog Week and PetPace the provider of innovative health monitoring pet wearables wants assistance dog owners to learn more about their pet’s health.

Because International Assistance Dog Week is a time to celebrate and educate, we want dog owners to better understand how wearable technology, like PetPace, can help improve their special companion’s health.”
