Iowa school has official pet pooch

DAVENPORT, Iowa

Cami is an English Cream Lab and is the school's facility dog.

Unlike normal therapy dogs, however, Cami had a different type of training to be a facility dog.

Teachers say having Cami in the classroom is calming for the students. She visits up to five classes every day.

She walks up and down the rows of desks letting students pet her while they work on assignments.

The students also help take care of Cami by taking her for walks and feeding her lunch.
