Service Dog Agency

Question

The more I have thought about service dogs, the more I am sure I want one regardless of the VA decision. I think it would change my life.

I cannot be in places with lots of people, cannot walk over pedestrian overpasses, have to leave movies to get re-grounded and get through a panic attack and so on...

Any suggestions for a good agency?
