Ok I think that I would be looking at a service dog not a therapy dog thanks for the clear up smile I don't think that I am "disabled" legally (as it is considered to be a mental illness) do I have to have any kind of papers to apply for a service dog or to certify a dog? I am working with a experienced dog trainer and I have re-trained both of our current dogs, who both had severe agression ( one was territorial, and the other is dog/animal agressive and is agressive with males). I know that the training for a SD is very intense and you have to be very through but would there be a way for me to train my own? Is there a class or course of some type? I would much rather save an animal than go out and buy one that is already garenteed a home...

I am hoping to get a rescue dog and then train it to be a therapy/comfort dog. I have ADD and have panic attacks when in school and in certain social interactions. I was also wondering that if the dog was trained to detect low blood sugar would I have to certify them as a service dog? I live in Ontario but I would really like a pit bull are the laws still the same even if they are a therapy dog? I really need help figuring out how to go about this any help would be great!
