Service dog question.... HELP
I am search of some opinions from experienced SD owners...
I suffer from depression along with anxiety and it is not uncommon for me to have multiple anxiety/panic attacks a week.
I was wondering which type of service dog would be best for me? A psychiatric service dog? An emotional support dog? A therapy dog? I have had numerous people including two doctors suggest me looking into getting a service dog. I am currently on medication and will likely stay on it, however, it is not helping me like they had hoped.
I understand that a service dog is 'to preform a task that the handler cannot do for itself'. I cannot pull myself out of an attack nor can I tell when an attack is on the horizon. I was wondering if the dog could pull me out of/prevent an attack if that would be considered a task I cannot do for myself.
I also am interested in finding out what breeds/sexes would be best. I have done lots of research and am leaning towards a female doberman. Any help/replies are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
