The Best Dogs for Helping People with Mobility

The Rottweiler might not seem like the best mobility service dog, but the more you learn about them, the more you'll see how great they are for the job.

1. Rottweiler

They are very loving and loyal, and even though they have a history of being protective, it isn't a problem if they are socialized properly.


But keep in mind that some people might be more cautious around a Rottweiler care animal than they would be around another breed.


The St. Bernard is another big dog breed that can be a great mobility service dog.

2. St. Bernard

These dogs used to help people get through the Swiss mountains, so they are well-suited to help people in their everyday lives as well.

St. Bernard

Like many large dog breeds, they have a shorter life span that you'll need to think about, but they're a great choice if you need a bigger dog to help you get around.

If you need a big service animal to help you move around, a Mastiff can be a good pick.

3. Mastiff

Mastiffs come in a wide range of sizes, but even the smallest one weighs 160 pounds, so there is no such thing as a "small" Mastiff.


The Great Dane is one of the biggest dogs in the world.

4. Great Dane

If you need a service dog that can help a bigger person, the Great Dane might be a great choice.
