What Is The Best Way To Interact With A Service Dog In Public?


Ask the handler how the service dog helps them and get permission before interacting with the service dog.


Speak directly to the handler, not the service dog.


Be respectful of the service dog’s space.


Always assume the service dog is busy working, not off duty.
