Resources for Service Dogs

Service Dog Etiquette:

  • Do not touch the dog without permission from the human partner.
  • Do not distract the dog with noises, food or attempts to pet.
  • Talk to the person, not the dog
  • Do not ask the person what their disability is
  • Compliments about a service dog are usually welcome.
  • Do not be offended if the partner doesn’t want to chat about their service dog or disability
  • If you have a dog, don’t let it approach, play with or bark at a service dog
  • Tell partners that might be visually impaired where your dog is in relation to them
