Miniature Pinscher psychiatric service dog?
I use a miniature pinscher as a service dog for bipolar disorder and social anxiety. When I'm overwhelmed in a crowd he guides me. He also alerts me to things that might startle me or over whelm me. He licks my hand when I am nervous and sleeps in my lap when I am calm. Truly a good service dog for being 12lbs! Does anyone else use a min pin or small dog as a PSD?

Although I don't use my little Min Pin Windy as a service dog for me, she is a registered Therapy Dog and helps calm patients at the hospital. She seems to sense when someone needs her and will pull me into a room to see that patient, she has them smiling before she leaves. They are wonderful dogs aren't they!

What was the process for making your minpin a therapy dog? I have a wonderful 13 month old minpin and would like to do the same for my anxiety.
Hi, I have the same thing as you. It is impossible to describe how happy I was when I found your post. My min pin is 8 months old and my dearest wish is to have her as my psd. Would it bother you to correspond? My email is email@example.com .My name is Caroline.
