Emotional Dog Support

Emotional dog support is becoming a common form of therapeutic relief for people who are suffering from emotional disabilities in America today. Dogs are not only the most common type of emotional support animal (ESA), but they are also believed to be the most effective too. Any type of canine regardless of breed or size can become an emotional pet too; they just need to meet behavioural and social guidelines. This means that it’s not a threat to anyone and is always in their owner’s control. There are a few types of breeds which may be better suited to your condition, though, and Golden Retrievers and Labradors are popular among people with depression for example.

What is Emotional Dog Support?

This is when someone gets a dog to be their emotional support animal. These animals main purpose is to provide their emotionally disabled owner with companionship. An emotional disability can be a mental or psychiatric condition and also extend to chronic ailments such as depression, stress, and anxiety. The presence of these canines can sometimes be enough just by itself for making their owners feel better about their condition and aid in reducing their symptoms.

How Are These Dogs Effective?

These dogs provide their owners with love, affection, and companionship. It’s this bond that can help improve the owners quality of life improve and in some cases erase the symptoms of their condition completely. This is especially true for many cases where people were suffering from depression and insomnia. People with emotional disabilities can unfortunately lack companionship with someone or maybe a person won’t be able to spend enough time with them. This is one of the reasons why these companion dogs are so popular and they can always be around their owner to provide company.

How Can I Get One?

If you have an emotional disability then you can go and see a registered mental health professional and be assessed for your need for one of these distress dogs. If you are unsure if you have this type of disability, but are experiencing the symptoms of one, then you should also go and see a professional too. If the mental health professional concludes that an ESA will greatly result in one or more of your conditions symptoms being mitigated, then they can issue you with a letter of approval. Once you have this letter, you are free to go and get a canine and get it registered too if you wish to do so.
