What makes it a support dog /assistance dog
by: Jake

Hi Jake here I have questions if you have a dog for depression and anxiety can they be service dogs or not I’m very confused by reading mixed messages online thank you for reading.


My apologies for the late reply. Yes it is confusing!

As I understand it Assistance Dogs are dogs trained and certified by a recognised organisation eg: Guide Dogs.

Support Dogs are dogs that haven't had the rigorous training but provide support to their owners. This may be for depression, anxiety. loneliness, or to maintain wellbeing such as getting them out in the community or walking.

Support dogs aren't allowed in Cafe's and shops. Though I believe they can travel on the train and bus - depending on the providers rules.

Assistance dogs are generally allowed everywhere.

I hope that helps a little bit.
