|I'd like to pop in here and say that businesses have the right to assert the belief that dogs trained in personal protection are considered weapons, and thus can be rightfully excluded from a building. Meaning dogs trained in bite work and other personal protection can not be an ADA protected service dog, regardless of the owner's disability or whether the dog has a task. The ADA does not protect an owner's desire to train their service animal in protection work, so you can be legally denied access if your dog poses a direct threat to other patrons (I.E being trained in protection work). You can find a more fluent explanation here: http://servicedogcentral.org/content/protection-training
I'm not sure that this poster was even considering or eligible for a service dog and I believe the above poster is soliciting a product.
To the OP, I'd suggest finding a trainer willing to work with you, and even help you choose a breed. I'd do a good bit of research on your rights regarding protection dogs in your area, and how you'll need to address legal problems should your dog wrongfully attack another person, or even attack another person while you're being directly threatened.
