Service dog etiquette


Most owners expect their service dogs to be treated as a medical device while in public. The health and safety of the owner may depend on the dog's ability to focus and resist distraction. Many service dogs are trained to avoid distraction when wearing their gear, but relax and are friendly when the gear is removed. An owner will expect to be asked for permission before another individual interacts with the dog.[8] It is advised not to pet a service dog unless having asked the owner permission. Distracting a service dog is considered disruptive.
