When choosing a mobility support service dog, it is important to select a breed that is intelligent, eager to please, and has a calm temperament. Breeds that are commonly used for mobility service dogs include Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Standard Poodles. This also means that breeds that are typically more independent, like Huskies or Samoyeds, are not typically ideal candidates for mobility support service dog training.

Secondly, mobility support service dogs must have a calm and gentle demeanor. This is essential, as they will be working closely with individuals who may be easily frightened or agitated.
