Angels With Paws

"Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person."

Service Dogs are amazing creatures.  We have seen them completely change the lives of many people.  We are so grateful to live in a country where rights are given to service dogs so they can continue to help lots of people every day.  Without service dogs, many people would struggle day in and day out with simple tasks.  Even though Service Dogs don't fix everything, they do make a significant difference in many lives.  Whether it is an autism assistance dog, seizure alert/response, or PTSD assistance, we have seen dogs help significantly.  Dogs have also been known to help with many other disabilities that include but are not limited to deafness, blindness, and mobility/stability issues.

What Can Service Dogs Do?

I am sure most people have seen service dogs out and about with their handlers at some point.  Most people know what they are, but not many can say what they do.  There are many tasks a service dog can perform, to name a few, deep pressure therapy, turning on light switches, fetching objects, hearing alerts, tick disrupting, and many more.  Different types of service dogs do different kinds of tasks.

Types of Service Dogs

  • Autism Assistance dogs are often a game-changer for people.  They can do many incredible tasks.  A prevalent job is deep pressure therapy for calming.  Many of them also do tethering.  This is a task for clients who often elope when they get upset or stressed.  Many autism assistance dogs also are trained in trailing.  This gives clients peace of mind and an accessible resource for locating their loved one who elopes.

  • Psychiatric Assistance Dogs can do amazing things for those who struggle with mental health and mental disorders such as PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, etc.  Service Dogs can help create space in public, turn on lights during nightmares, disrupt self-harming habits such as skin picking, and much more.

  • Mobility Dogs are an excellent tool for someone who may use a wheelchair.  These dogs can do unique tasks that help in public access and day-to-day tasks such as fetching medicines, opening cabinets, turning on lights, and much more.  The sky is the limit for these phenomenal dogs.

    • ​Stability Dogs are very familiar to Mobility Dogs; however, they do more physical work.  These dogs are for someone who may be mobile, but they may just be a bit unsteady and need an extra brace to keep them steady.  Like the mobility dogs, they are often taught tasks like fetching objects, turning on lights, and opening cabinets.

    • Hearing Dogs are an excellent tool for someone with partial or complete deafness to utilize.  Hearing dogs can be taught things like alerting to alarms, sirens, calling the handler's name, and much more.

    • Seizure Response Dogs are dogs who have a particular task in response to their handler having a seizure.  They often bark to alert someone or nudge

         Service Dogs can come in many different shapes and sizes.  Often you will see Poodles, Doodles, Labrador Retrievers, and Golden Retrievers.  However, if the dog has the right attitude and personality, many other breeds can excel at this type of work.  A good service dog needs to be willing to please and very forgiving.  They need to be social and environmentally stable.  Service Dogs must also get along well with other animals.
         Even though there are lots of dog breeds that can mentally succeed at Service Dog work, there are a few other variables we need

    to look at.  Depending on the tasks the dog will complete, the dog may or may not need some size.  It may not be as crucial for a hearing alert dog to be very big or small.  However, if you are going to be using the dog for mobility/stability work, they will have to be proportionally sized with their person.     Since we have talked about temperament and size, we also need to talk about life expectancy.  As sad as it is, some dog breeds/sizes have shorter life expectancies than others.  It sometimes takes upwards of two years to get a Service Dog fully trained.  It is always good to go for a breed of dog that has a longer life expectancy.  Larger species such as Great Danes or Mastiffs sometimes only live up to seven or eight years old.  Meanwhile, a Labrador Retriever or a Standard Poodle are just getting started at that point.  Using larger breeds isn't always a bad thing, but it is something to consider when choosing a breed for your Service Dog.
