Abstract

It is important to remember that a service dog is not a pet, and that their primary responsibility is to work for its handler. Petting, talking to, or distracting these animals without permission has the potential to disrupt them from doing their work and may put the handler in danger. Although many individuals enjoy talking about their service animal, they may not always have the time or ability to do so. Do not be offended if the handler denies your request for interaction while the animal is working.
