Service DogsI've been working in the Pet Care industry for the past 5 years. I've had many jobs in this field including working in retail pet stores, working in kennels, working in doggie daycares, working with dog trainers and working doing private in-home pet-sitting and dog walking. Recently my work with pets has me working for a woman with a service dog. We've gotten very close over the past year, and I've gotten to see first-hand what it's like for her living with and going out in public with a service dog. Overall, her experience with her service dog has been very positive... but she often experiences negative situations.More Like This
Inspired by some of the situations she's been in, I decided to put together a bit of a guide for the general public on what to do when you see someone with a service dog out in public.
Note: I live in the United States. So all of the laws I mention are applicable to the US. Other countries have varying laws regarding service animals
