CGC is a good start. Plan to do a lot of formal obedience training, and start to look around for an actual service dog trainer. I did a google search and came upon some names of folks in GA that claim to train assistance dogs. Take those claims with a grain of salt.

Ask to meet with one or several of their former clients with their dogs. Better yet, ask the clients if they would mind if you could meet them in a public place for cup of coffee and chat. This will give you a chance to see the dog in action (in a restaurant or busy cafe) and you can pick the person's brain for the pros and cons of having an SD. (It's actually more of a hassle at times than many people realize.) And you will be able to get input on the training facility you're thinking of using before you drop a lot of $$.

Good luck to you!
