Prince Harry Visits With 'Superdogs' Trained To Help Severely Disabled (PHOTOS)

In a recent visit to West Sussex, Prince Harry visited with 'superdogs' trained by nonprofit organization Canine Partners, who work alongside British charity Help For Heroes to provide support to veterans.

A spokesperson for Canine Partners explained,

"The charity aims to train dogs to meet the needs of people with even the most complex disabilities, including members of the Armed Forces."

'Superdogs' are trained to help with tasks ranging from opening and closing doors to more difficult procedures like doing laundry and using ATM machines. The dogs can also help with picking up dropped items, pressing buttons for elevators, and summoning help in case of emergency.

BBC News reports Prince Harry oversaw training sessions for puppies new to the program, and got to witness fully trained dogs in action. One 'superdog' demonstrated its skills by removing a glove from the prince's hand on command.
