Before you pet any dog, you should always ask for permission. It’s not only polite, it’s a safety issue for you — and in the case of a working Service Dog, it’s a safety issue for the disabled handler as well since distractions can interfere with the dog’s ability to work. Service Dog Standards lets you “pet” a Service Dog in the safest way possible!
