Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.Dogs are as individual as people. If you found your dog intelligent and eager to learn during basic obedience lessons you still need to consider some factors before trying to train him to be a service dog. Willingness is an important consideration, but you must also think about what you'll be asking him to do. Some tasks you might ask him to perform include picking up large objects, pulling or pushing your wheelchair, bracing to help you up or down and opening doors. These exercises all require a medium to large, fairly strong dog. It would be difficult for a chihuahua or a miniature poodle to help you up or pick up heavy items for you.
