Tasks and Work

What is the Difference Between Work Tasks and Physical Tasks?

Items listed as a physical task (e.g. tactile stimulation) may have a work component if the dog is recognizing and responding on their own to the handler’s medical condition, or if the handler uses the tactile stimulation as a part of their cognitive behavioral or mind/body regulatory work.
Items listed as work (e.g. waking the handler) may have a physical task component where the general public might see the dog performing some function, but the handler must respond to the dog’s cue in a cognitive behavioral or mind/body regulatory fashion for the symptom to be mitigated.
