TYPES OF SERVICE DOGS
Physical Task Dogs
People with physical disabilities can benefit from the help of a service dog to perform tasks such as retrieving items and putting them in their lap or backpack, opening doors, turning light switches on and off, etc.
Companion Dogs for Children
Children with special needs will have a team of three consisting of a primary caretaker or parent, the child and the dog. The dog can be trained to perform many physical tasks such as pickig up items, turning lights on and off and opening doors and so on. A service dog gives children a sense of security enhanced by a wonderful bond of love, affection and trust that develops between the child and dog.

In fact, studies have shown that children with Autism who have bonded with a companion service dog have better focus, fewer temper tantrums and a greater general sense of security in the world.

People who suffer from emotional disabilities such as agoraphobia, anxiety in public and so on can benefit from the help of a service dog to enhance their sense of security when they are out in the world.
