Would this exclude my dog ​​from service dog training?

Brief Background: I have a lifelong disease similar to diabetes. My quality of life could improve if I had a service dog, but not enough to spend thousands of dollars. I also have a dog that gives a lot of indicators of potentially being a great service dog for me. So hey, if it works, it’s a win-win situation, and if it fails, then we have a good bonding experience through the training process. ——– the real question ——– My pup is a 6 year old Australian who LOVES scent work. Like obsessively. She is also a dog with velcro to the extreme. Constantly staring at me. When I leave, watch the door until I return. When he sleeps, he periodically opens one eye and finds me. If he can’t, he wakes up immediately to come get me. All good things for a dog who wants to keep an eye on his medical condition lol. My big problem is that she is averse to dogs. She is not aggressive, she just wants NOTHING to do with other dogs. If you leave her alone, she won’t blink. However, if a dog approaches him, he will growl and bark. It is not a proximity problem. I really think she could sit 2 feet away from another dog and as long as they ignore her, she would be happy to ignore them. However, I have not tried it because I do not know any dog ​​that is not interested in playing. She is an angel with public access. Wherever it is allowed to go, it goes. She does not interact with strangers without permission. My job is dog friendly and I work with people with disabilities so she has been close to everything. People screaming and waving that have no borders. Wheelchairs Walkers. People who approach him. People who yell a lot. She is unflappable. So overall, I feel like she will be a dream. But I know that no amount of training will make him like other dogs. She could probably learn to tolerate them better, and with the amount of time it will take to train her for the scent portion of the work, I know I have plenty of time to work on her threshold. But if service dogs MUST be dog-friendly, then there’s not much hope for that anyway. Oh, and disclaimer: I would still work with a coach. I just don’t want to spend thousands of dollars for a pre-trained dog.
