Service Dogs 101: Common Service Dog Breeds

The most common breeds for guide dogs and mobility assistance dogs are Labrador Retrievers German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers

Service dogs range from very small to very large in size. The dog must be able to comfortably execute the tasks needed to help mitigate a disability. For example, a Papillon is not an appropriate choice to pull a wheelchair, but could make an excellent hearing assistance dog or emotional support dog. Increasingly, many service dogs are rescued from shelters.
