Service Dog Breeds

Dogs have performed many roles in our society. They have helped us hunt, protect us, and even kept us warm in cold climates. Not only are they our loyal pets and companions, but they are also dedicated workers. Service dogs play different roles and perform tasks that help the police, military, and disabled individuals.

Service dogs need to be highly trainable. They need to possess skills that would allow them to be useful and perform tasks a disabled person cannot. Service dogs can lead the blind and become ears for a deaf person. They can even help people walk. However, becoming a service dog requires rigorous training. This is a lengthy process that not all dogs manage to complete. Check out these amazing service dog breeds.
