Service dog etiquette is another of those core issues that we talk about all the time, but is still an ongoing battle, and probably always will be.
While there are lots of images, infographics, and articles out there that attempt to educate everyone about that subject, I find that most of it doesn’t make the cut for a number of reasons. The t-shirts from Guide Dog Foundation / America’s VetDogs pictured above are very good, and the card from Canine Companions for Independence pictured below is excellent as well (albeit on a different but related issue), but we need more good tools to get that message out, and I’m throwing out a challenge here to those organizations and others to come up with them.
That and more in this week’s service dog news podcast.
