What is a Service Dog?

A "SERVICE DOG" is a type of assistance dog specifically trained to help people who have disabilities.  Dogs can be trained to aid for hearing impairments, mental illness, seizures, diabetes, Autism, and more.  Desirable character traits in service animals typically include good temperament or psychological make-up including train-ability, and good health, physical structure, and stamina.   A Growing number of people choose to train their own service dogs.  These dogs come from a wide variety of places - some choose to pick a dog from breeder or rescue one with the idea of training them to work in mind.  Others decided a current, dog pet might become a suitable partner (particularly if they develop the ability to alert to a medical condition).  People who train their own dogs generally a year or more with the dog "In-Training" through self trained dogs in particular never stop learning new skills.
