They are the professionals of the dog world and include leader dogs for the blind, therapy dogs, physical assistance dogs, hearing assistance and personal security dogs. In addition dogs are being used to assist people with other kinds of disabilities such as mental illness. Service dog training is specialized to the task they are asked to perform. Dogs have served mankind for thousands of years and have skills that cannot be duplicated even with the best high tech equipment.

In addition the dogs frequently are used to carry groceries to and from vehicles. Additional skills that must be mastered included tug or pulling, muzzle based pushing, deposit of items to a specific location, Support or bracing tasks that help an individual get in and out of a wheel chair or bed, Pawing or opening tasks for cupboards and doors, personal security tasks including responding to smoke detectors and summoning help, In many cases service dogs are also trained to work in harness to provide mobility and support. As you can see that service dog training covers a wide range of subjects and skills. There are many more tasks that a service dog can accomplish with proper training. Service dogs greatest benefit to handicapped individuals comes by providing the freedom and independence needed to live a normal life. It is almost impossible to put a monetary figure on these task related benefits. In addition there are the quality of life benefits that all dogs provide to the individual in
