What is the best breed for a service dog?

The truth is, there are many answers to the question. Here are the top 3 key elements I look for in a puppy or adult dog when assessing for service work:

1: The dogs willingness to please the handler and trainer. Its just as it sounds, is the dog eggar to listen to commands and learn, or is he in his “own world”?

2: The canines ability to physically and mentally carry out it’s service duties for the handler. Start by asking yourself: What task are needed for the handler?

3: The age. Both adult dogs and puppies can begin training to be service animals. Keep in mind that service canines should be retired about 10 years of age. It is best to have a puppy from a respected breeder evaluated by an experienced trainer. Because of the time and work involved, dogs older than 4 to 5 years of age should not be considered for full time service animal training.

There are certain breeds that thrive in specific areas of service: Labrador, Golden Retriever, German Shepards, Poodles and American Staffordshire Terrier’s just to name a few. Speak with your trainer about your specific needs for a service animal and come up with a game plan that fits you best!
