Service dogs.

So how does this work?? I have a degenerative condition, that at the moment, is only causing minor issues in mobility, but it's degenerative, so it is getting worse. Well a cane is an option now, but my balance is affected so I worry that a cane won't help much with that.

So I thought of a service dog. But have no idea what to do from that point. I thought about it, but what next? I know they train them for my needs, and right now those aren't extensive. I need help getting up to standing. I need help with balance on inclines and stairs, and if I drop things I have trouble picking them up. So I saw that dogs are trained for those things, but again, where do I go from here??

Does anyone know?
