Hey. This question is probably far outside the scope of furvilla's usebase. What's important for service dogs is temperament and their ability to be trained. While it's true some breeds to do have better temperaments than others overall, it's also gonna depend on the dog. It will also depend on having a breed that can do the work required for your task list (you don't have share that, just that you should take it into consideration). You should talk to a qualified dog trainer or agency about your requirements to get an idea of what breeds may be appropriate for you.
