Disability Etiquette Gone Wrong: Service Dogs

By on 08/31/2017

Service dogs work hard and can do a lot of things, from opening doors to getting something off a shelf. But as skilled as they are, they can’t do two things at once!

In this video, you’ll see a case of service dog etiquette gone wrong, and learn how to do it right!
