Sheena is a PSD(Psychiatric Service Dog) and is being retired this year(2013).  Daya is a PSD in training.  A PSD is a type of service dog trained to assist their partner who has a mental illness.  Here is my favorite link that describe what a PSD is, does and how they are trained.

I am a firm believer that service dogs should be dressed. Not all service dog users agree and that is their right but my opinion is that they should be. This is a clear indicator to business owners and patrons that the dog is not a pet and that it is working. Sheena and Daya have never been out in public without gear on to indicate they are working or training.
