Episode Summary

What kind of job can a dog do? Brandeis is about to find out! After attempting—unsuccessfully—to fold laundry in the Laundromat and sweep the floor in Hooper's store, this yellow Labrador Retriever fears he'll never be employable, that is, until he learns about service dogs from Gina.

Gina tells Brandeis that service dogs help people with special needs and explains that becoming one takes a lot of hard work. Brandeis is ready for the challenge.

After weeks of training, and learning to do things like opening drawers and turning on lights, Brandeis officially becomes a service dog. He's nervous about meeting Liliana, the girl he'll be helping, but once he does, it's clear that this is the beginning of a beautiful partnership…not to mention a long, happy career.
