Service dogs may help by opening and closing doors, turning switches on and off, finding specific people, barking to indicate a need for help, retrieving objects that are difficult for their owners to hold or reach, and many more tasks specifically tailored to the needs of each individual.

Service Dogs are granted certain privileges and access that pet dogs and Emotional Support dogs are not, and are generally allowed to accompany their owners in any public place. Service Dogs must be well-behaved, clean and well cared for, fully house-trained, and not post a threat or danger to others.

Assistance dogs are trained to aid or assist a person with a disability. They may be trained by a specific organization or by their owners (sometimes with the help of a professional trainer.

Assistance dogs may be trained to aid the visually or hearing impaired, or they may be trained as Service Dogs to assist people with other disabilities.
