Service Dogs are trained for a specific task for a person who has a medical condition or disability.  The dog is trained to aide to assist the person in their daily living and their service helps mitigate their disability or health condition.   The dog could serve as a seeing eye dog, seizure alert or response, diabetic alert, psychiatric service, mobility assistance, autism assistance and much more.  A service dog is allowed off leash while tasking or the handler’s disability does not allow for the use of a leash.

Service dogs require extensive training that takes roughly 18-24 months that includes obedience training, extensive socialization, public access training, and task training.  Once trained, handlers may be accompanied by their service dog anywhere public access is allowed.  There are laws that protect service dogs and the owner’s rights to have them, through the ADA/DOJ and the ACAA/DOT.

It’s important to note that should you want a dog for service work, puppies cannot be guaranteed to be a good fit.  Many prospects start service dog training and don’t end up making the final cut in the end.  Personality testing helps make a good choice but it can only be considered a guidance tool, not a guarantee.  If you need a guarantee then you should go through a service dog organization that will have dogs that have already undergone training.
