A service dog is a dog that has been specially trained to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. The most common type of service dog is a guide dog, which helps people who are blind or have low vision. Other types of service dogs can assist people who are deaf or hard of hearing, have seizure disorders, or have mobility impairments.

It’s important to note that service dogs are not the same as pet dogs. They undergo extensive training to perform specific tasks and are protected by federal law. Moreover, service dogs are allowed to go places that pet dogs are not, such as inside businesses and on public transportation.

People who use service dogs typically have a disability that limits their ability to perform activities of daily living. For example, a person who is blind may rely on a guide dog to help them get around. A person with a mobility impairment may use a service dog to help them with tasks such as opening doors or picking up things that they have dropped.

Therefore, service dogs can provide invaluable assistance to people with disabilities. They can help increase independence and self-confidence, and provide companionship.

Between the public access manners and the specialized skills required for a particular disability, based on the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners (IAADP) guidelines, training a service dog requires a minimum of 120 hours of training for at least 6 months (depending on the dog and the required skills). During that time, dogs also need to work a minimum of 30 hours in public settings to help them generalize their skills and teach them to be responsive and unobtrusive in a variety of public places.

In case you wonder, it takes a special dog to be a service dog. Many dogs can be trained to pick up objects, alert to changes in glucose levels, help with balance, interrupt repetitive patterns and offer comfort. Not every dog, however, can handle going out in public. Going to a mall may not seem like a big challenge, but the crowd, the sounds, the shiny surfaces, the carts, the elevators, etc. can be very stressful to many dogs.

#15 Search And Rescue Over Fetch Any Day

A good candidate to be a service dog is both a confident and social dog. A dog that is easy going and likes to greet every new person. For a shy and anxious dog, being out in public could be a source of stress and anxiety. Just like people, when dogs are anxious, they are more likely to be on the lookout for potential threats. They might bark, growl or even bite if they don’t feel safe. Additionally, a dog concerned about his/her own safety will not be able to focus on the handler and provide the needed assistance.

#19 Depressed 9/11 Rescue Dogs

Finding survivors was dangerous and thankless work. The rescue crews suffered limitations, like dangerous and smoldering debris, and tight access. To aid in their efforts, some employed dogs to help. After the collapse, they pulled only 23 people from the debris, 15 of them rescue workers who’d compromised their own safety. Rescuers removed the last survivor 27 hours after the collapse.

Rescue dogs were finding so few living survivors, they would become noticeably depressed, thinking they weren’t doing a good job. Handlers would hide in the rubble to allow the dogs to “find” them, boosting their spirit and morale.
