There are several different kinds of service dogs, including guide dogs, hearing dogs, mobility dogs, seizure alert/response dogs, psychiatric service dogs, and autism dogs. There are also other types of dogs with jobs that help people, including therapy dogs and emotional support animals.

1. Autism Therapy Dogs

Dogs are specifically trained to aid people with Autism, giving them an anchor in overwhelming situations. The dogs also provide an emotional connection not achievable by some with Autism.
2. PTSD Therapy Dogs
service dogs 2-10
Some people suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) have difficulty adjusting to a daily routine after what they had been through. Dogs are trained to assist people suffering from PTSD and may be cued to search certain dwellings before their handler can enter, lead emergency respondents to their handler, or pull their handler to safety during a flashback.
3. Mobility Dogs
service dogs 3-10
People with mobility issues who can’t reach items such as a light switch, a door knob or can’t quite clear the doorway rely on dogs trained to perform everyday tasks for their handlers.
4. Sight Guide Dogs
service dogs 4-10
The most well known of the service dogs are the “seeing eye dogs”. These smart dogs are taught to be a person’s eyes, leading them around and through everyday obstacles. They are also taught impeccable manners, they go everywhere their handler goes.
5. Seizure Detection Dogs
service dogs 5-10
This new type of service dog has only been on the scene for about ten years or so, but have made quite an impact on those suffering from certain seizure disorders. These highly skilled dogs sense before their handler has a seizure and alerts them so that precautions may be taken.
6. Diabetic Detection Dogs
service dogs 6-10
Dogs are trained to sniff the air to detect a drop in blood sugar levels on someone’s breath. Not every dog can do it and potential puppies are screened thoroughly before being accepted into the program.
7. Allergy Detection
service dogs 7-10
These particular dogs put their overly sensitive noses to good use by scoping out rooms and areas, detecting allergens for people who suffer from severe allergies.
8. Service Dogs For The Hearing Impared

People suffering from hearing loss rely on dogs to be their ears for them. These dogs are trained to be aware of their environment. Handlers watch their dogs for reactions to certain sounds.
9. Mental Health Dogs
service dogs 9-10
These highly intelligent dogs go through a rigorous training period where they may be taught to bring medication to their handler, backtrack if the handler becomes disoriented and lost, or identify hallucinations. Mental illness comes in varying degrees, each with its own idiosyncrasies. Dogs can be trained to handle most situations.
10. Therapy Dogs
service dogs 10-10
Not to be confused with the highly trained mental health service dogs, therapy dogs are trained to offer comfort to those who are sick or grieving. Therapy dogs are chosen for their calm easy going temperament and their people skills.

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_breeds_o ... rvice_dogs
Traditional breeds for service dogs have been German Shepherds (GSD), Labradors, and Golden Retrievers. But nowadays the use of unusual breeds has exploded. Mastiffs are used for mobility work. Chihuahuas are used for diabetic or seizure alert dogs. If the dog has the temperment, skills, and willingness to work; almost any breed could do certain jobs. A corgi wouldn't work out for mobility work but could work as a hearing dog. Breeds like pugs and bulldogs don't always make the best of service dogs to the pushed in noses-this leads to difficult breathing while walking and a shorter working life. While toy breeds can do some service dog jobs, they are not often taken seriously by store employees and the public, especially if dressed up like someone's child.

Smaller breeds are being used by more disabled people on a fixed income as they eat less and can live happier in a smaller home. A cocker spaniel can alert to a sound just as well as a labrador.

Bully breeds, dobermans, and rottweilers are used as service dogs. This can caused access problems in areas with breed specific legisislation (BSL) aka breed bans. Some cities require service dogs of a banned breed to be muzzled in public. Or you may not be able to purchase a banned breed if you live within city limits.
