Guide Dogs Go Where We Do!

Would you pet a dog that’s not yours if you see him in public without asking? Would you talk to a dog instead of its owner? How about letting that dog into your cab or Uber or onto your bus? Guide dogs are in their mobile office when clad in harness, leash, and often the accompanying harness sign. They are at work getting those who use them from one place to another.

Here’s a very helpful video from Guide Dogs for the Blind giving a few tips for anyone who sees a guide dog in public, especially to those who provide transportation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QIP0mozfgk

In the meantime, check out these common messages that harness signs say:

“I’m working.”

“Ask my owner before petting me.”

“Please look but don’t touch.”

And one of my favorites:

“Don’t feed or flirt with me.”
