Here at Regis Regal German Shepherds we can match you with the service dog best suited to your emotional support needs.


Service Dogs for Anxiety

There are many benefits of a service dog or emotional support dog, especially for anxiety. There are various symptoms of anxiety including restlessness, easily fatigued, difficult sleeping, feelings of unease or self-consciousness , or phobias. Service dogs are specially trained to ease tension or anxious feelings. These tasks could include:

  • Recognizing signs of an anxiety attack and calming a person down.
  • Getting someone to help during an anxiety attack.
  • Retrieving a phone when in distress.
    Prevent a stranger to approach when in distress.

These tasks could be especially helpful for children with anxiety. Studies have shown that children experiencing anxiety, certain phobias, or tension in social settings benefit from the support of a companion dog. Daily use of a service dog can help build confidence and independence.

Service Dogs for Depression  

Depressive disorders can cause severe, persistent, and disabling symptoms. Service dogs like German Shepherds can provide comfort just by petting. However with our specialized service dog training for emotional support, these therapy dogs can 

  • Improve mental health by comforting one in need. 
  • Keeping one calm in stressful situations or around strangers.
  • Helping keep one safe during a depressive episode. 
  • Can be trained to call 911 or get help in an emergency.
