I need a psychatric service dog for PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression. I have afew dogs that I prefer to have and I've read about all of them but I have information that has been contradicted by multiple sites and I don't really know what to believe haha. Please do not ask why I want specific dogs and why I don't want specific colors for some dogs. My reasoning for their appearance is my own preference and it doesn't need to be explained.
An asterisk (*) will be put beside favored breeds.
What I am considering:
Anatolian Shepherd *
Great Pyrenees *
Yellow Labrador - preferably an English Lab.
Belgian Tervuren *
Alaskan Malamute *
Canadian Eskimo Dog
Shiloh Shepherd Dog
Possibly a Mastiff
What I'm looking for:
A large/Giant breed
Long/medium fur - short fur accepted in some cases
Dog friendly - especially with the same gender
Somewhat okay with strangers if they have been introduced well.
Easy to train
What I'm not looking for:
A small breed or a breed under 25 inches.
Designer/Crossbreed. Pure breeds only unless they are mentioned in the breeds I am looking for.
Pitbull - I know they are amazing dogs but I would rather not have any issues with the public because of this specific breed.
A dog that will bite children or my smaller dog (miniature dachshund).
An overly athletic dog
One that will jump over or dig under fences
A territorial breed that will harm people in our household or try to expand the territory out of my yard.
A dog that can't make due with a medium to large yard.
A dog that will cost a fortune.
Collies of any kind
Wire coats or scruffy faces
Bernese Mountain Dog
Dogs with high attack rates.
Thank you for any input you can supply on any of the dogs I mentioned wanting or any dogs you can suggest. Please respect eachother and respect me.
