Service dogs have proven to be helpful to those suffering from seizure disorders, diabetes, or sudden and severe drops in blood glucose levels. To train an effective service dog, list all the things your dog will need to learn and to be sure you didn't miss out anything, you can go over the list with another person with experience in training service dogs. You need to bear in mind that it may be difficult for you to train your pet dog to become a service dog. The reason is that your pet dog has mastered your daily routine, so trying to change all of that suddenly may seem like work to him. So, if you suffer from anxiety, have mental issues, emotional issues or are physically challenged, then, you could really use the help of a service dog. While it is good to seek the help of a professional to help you train your dog, you can also train your dog to help you cope with emotional issues.
