I want to make my dog a service dog - November 4th 2019, 01:56 PM

So, I think my dog can be a service dog for my panic attacks as she will paw at me when I am not feeling right. She grounds me and makes sure that I don't panic even more. My mom doesn't think that she can be my service dog just for that. Is that true?

There are psychiatric service animals who help people with psychiatric illnesses such as panic attacks. I've looked into it for my PTSD. It can be a lot of money to get them trained which is what ended up preventing me from doing it.

Hi JessaMay!

First of all, welcome to Teenhelp!

I would suggest looking more into it and do your research if you are serious about it. As Bibliophile mentioned, it can cost a bit of money but I would have a look around before making any decisions. Service dogs can be used for many different reasons if they help.

I hope I helped. If you need anything, feel free to message me.

That sucks. I really think a service dog could help me. Just having a large animal by my side would really calm me down when I have my attacks. I will research more.

There's also emotional support animals but they don't have the same rights as service dogs.

Service dogs are allowed in all public places and emotional support animals are not. From my understanding emotional support animals are only allowed in homes, apartments etc and when people travel on a plane etc.
