Are there such things as anxiety service dogs?

I have a black lab (love her, such a princess!) however she is the family dog. I unfortunatly suffer from severe anxiety (doggy calms me, I can't go to school and freak out big time when alone in public ares, like my heart hurts and I get wicked panic attacks.) Yet when I have a dog near me, I feel calmer, and reassured that they are helpful and know if there is danger. My doctor said that having my dog with me sould help (in school), however she isn't qualified to preform as a 'service dog' somce she isn't trained and is mostly a house pet. Are there dogs that can help me? I'm too scared to go to school alone, thank you!
