Working Dogs

There are several types of working dogs, all which require exceptional temperaments and extensive training. Working Dogs include: Service Dogs (Mobility Support and Medical Response), Guide Dogs, Hearing Dogs, Therapy Dogs and Police/Law Enforcement Dogs. Not all types of Working Dogs are permitted public access. However, if you see a working dog in public, you should never touch the dog or interrupt them because they are working. The only exception would be if the handler offers you to pet the dog, or the dog is a Therapy Dog, in which case you should always ask before petting.
