This is a thread for those, like me, who have service dogs. All types of service dogs are accepted; mobility, psychiatric, alert... Everyone (and their dog) is welcome! Feel free to vent. All information is voluntary. If someone asks more information than you like, please feel free to say no. There will be no judgement. This thread is open to everyone; whether you're just curious about service dogs, have one, or are looking into getting one. My SD is a PSD (psychiatric service dog) for severe anxiety and panic attacks. My panic attacks are so bad I become literally paralyzed. Jazmine is trained to detect panic attacks as well as help me ride them through. She also will put herself in between myself and another person if she feels me getting nervous. A few days ago, I was told by a fabric store that I had to carry my service dog in there "because... Ya know... Fabric..." I complied as I was having a fairly relaxed evening, however I did tell her that I didn't need to and if she missed an alert that would be a lawsuit. My service dog may be small (shih tzu) but she has a huge job. Now, what are your service dog stories??
