6 Service Dog Breeds that are here to help!

We all know that a dog’s daily routine consists of eating, playing and then sleeping, right? But did you know that there are dogs out there with duties and responsibilities?  💼 Today we’re going to take a look at six dog breeds that are usually found in service dogs!! 🦮

🦮 Service dogs are not just regular dogs. They were trained specifically to help people with disabilities or in life-threatening conditions. For example, they can control their temperaments, follow orders the whole time, and are able to understand verbal communication or sign language. ✋

If you see service dogs on duty, please do not approach or interact with them without the handler’s permission. 🙅 It will distract service dogs from their duty.

Now that you know about service dogs. Let’s see which breeds are usually found in service dogs, shall we?

🐶 Golden Retriever

We can say that this breed is one of the most popular dog breeds to train for service dogs because of their friendly, easy-going nature. They are clever and very eager to learn which makes them easy to train. Golden retrievers are a very active breed. They should exercise often. They are fit for a visually impaired person.

🐶 Labrador Retriever

Same as Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds to train for service dogs because of their sociable nature and easy-going temperament. They’re also devoted and eager to please, clever, and easy to train too! They’re hardy and athletic so they can keep up with their handlers as they go about their day.
