I agree with Eckokitten, no training is needed for an ESA, just a really good bond between the two of you! You can train the dog to get in your lap like EK suggested. My PTSD/TBI service dog in training gets in my lap to ground me anytime I am uncalm or get dizzy spells. She is trained to lean into my chest and remain still. She absolutely loves to do this and will periodically climb onto my lap just to check in with me!
I left some training tips to get your dog to follow you on your post in dog training!
