Balance Dogs: Balance dogs assist individuals who have a disability that interferes with their ability to ambulate. Because an individual's needs vary, each dog is specially trained for the specific needs of their partner. Balance work is just one of the many tasks service dogs can be trained to perform.
Mobility Dog: This service dog may retrieve items, open doors or even push buttons for its handler. Also, this service dog may assist people with disabilities with walking, balance and transferring from place to place.
Mobility Assistance Dog: A mobility assistance dog is specially trained to help physically disabled people. They are trained in simple tasks such as picking up objects or opening and closing doors. Dogs of large stature are also trained in pulling wheel chairs. They are made to wear specially designed harnesses to pull them. A subtype of mobility assistance dog is a walker dog, which is trained to accompany people recovering from injuries. They are very often trained to help Parkinson's patients. These dogs help an individual to maintain balance while walking. If the handler falls, the dog acts as a brace for him, to regain position.
