Can I use my own dog?

Josue servicio Not all dogs can become service dogs. Service dogs to have certain traits to be able to work in public on a daily basis with theirs handler. They have to have a great temperament, they cannot show any aggression and they have the ability to do the task work that their handler needs to help with their disability. Only about 10% of the dogs we test for service dog work, actually pass the testing and complete the work to become a service dog.
