Service companion for vasovagal syncope

Hey all! I just read an article about someone who has the same condition as I do, which causes blood pressure to drop, sight going dark, tunnel hearing, dizziness, nausea and temporary losing consciousness. They wound up getting a service dog to help them. Does anyone know where I can get some resources to learn more about this? I've always loved goldens, and know they are fantastic with families. I never even considered a service animal, not thinking my condition may be one that could benefit from having one. Thank you to anyone in advance!

Comments in this thread might be helpful also. Scroll through it, there is one post with links to many service dog training organizations. (Questions regarding psychiatric service dog)
