Service dogs are defined as dogs that are individually trained to work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. They can be trained to work with people who use power or manual wheelchairs, have balance issues, need seizure alert or response, need to be alerted to other medical issues like low blood sugar, have psychiatric disabilities or various types of autism. These specially trained dogs can help by retrieving objects that are out of their person’s reach, by pulling wheelchairs, opening and closing doors, turning light switches off and on, barking to indicate that help is needed, finding another person and leading the person to the handler, providing balance and counterbalance, providing deep pressure, and many other individual tasks as needed by a person with a disability. Service dogs in public should, stay focused on their handler, have a stable, even temperament, and appear well groomed and taken care of. They should respond quickly to handlers commands or cues, they should also possess outstanding obedience skills and above average manners. Service dogs should not, pick up objects off of the floor unless otherwise directed to, wander, or move widely out of heel position, or be anxious, agitated or antsy.
