|In order to have a service dog a handler has to have a disability and the dog must be trained to mitigate that disability. While ADA doesn't prohibit protection training with service dogs the Rehab act and ACAA does prohibit it.
I think what you're asking is about Therapy dog program which is where you take your dog to visit people in hospitals, nursing rooms or other things (the definition of a therapy dog is a dog that helps people other than their handler) A therapy dog has no public access rights, and is only allowed in specific places where they're working at the permission of the building (hospitals, schools, nursing homes Not general places)
If you want to get into Tharapy dog work then contact either Pet Partners or Therapy dogs International in order to find out where close to you they have classes and testing.
