Rule #1 - Do Not Pet Me!
Okay so I'm adorable, now that we got that out-of-the-way let's talk about guide dog etiquette. For obvious safety reasons you never distract a
guy dog when he is working. Whistling, petting, calling or any other distraction is a severe safety issue, especially on busy Street's and in crowded areas. Oh yeah, and don’t feed us, that is a big no no. My job is to keep my person safe and frankly, I don't need any help from you.(No brag, just fact)
Being a guy dog is a member of an elite club. When you're good enough to reach this level you have skills beyond the average pop. No disrespect to our fellow canine companions whether they be of service variety, or just good old pets and best friends. After all when we take the harness off , we can be just another lovable hound dog too!
