It might surprise you to learn that any breed can be considered a service dog. That’s right—the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does not discriminate when it comes to service dogs. As long as the dog is trained to help its owner with their disability, the ADA will recognize it as a service dog.
Many people don’t know that you can train your own service dog. That’s why we’ve put together this guide for learning about and training them yourself. It doesn’t just save you money; it gives you valuable bonding time with your animal.
Dogs are more than just man’s best friend. They provide a valuable level of freedom and safety for individuals diagnosed with a disorder or disability. While all service and support dogs may look the same, there are huge differences between emotional support dogs and psychiatric service animals.
You've probably seen dogs with special uniforms designating them as "service" or "therapy" dogs. These are dogs that provide emotional support as well as help with everyday tasks.
Is there a difference between service and therapy dogs? The answer is yes. Most of these differences lie in the way the animal is individually trained, services performed, and legal protections.
