Over the years, we have had the honor of being able to get to know a lot of service dog owners and to have the opportunity to talk to them regarding the everyday struggles that they run into.
Service dogs are able to lead the blind, alert deaf people to alarms, retrieve items for the immobile, and so much more. For a person that has a disability, it is imperative that their service dog is with them at all times, and it is illegal for a business owner to deny access to a service dog or even to ask for identification. Your service dog does not have to wear a service dog vest by any means, but there are several reasons why it could be beneficial for you to get one.
A service dog vest can prevent awkward questions. Although it is illegal for a business to ask for proof that your dog is a service dog, it can still happen, and a vest can help you to avoid these types of situations.
A vest can keep others from distracting your dogs. Dogs are man's best friend, so it makes sense for people to want to pet your dog, but service dogs need to concentrate. A vest will send a message to others that your dog is hard at work and shouldn't be distracted.
A vest will help your dog to look like the professional he or she is!
Service dog vests are not a requirement, but they can help you to have a much more comfortable situation whenever you leave your house.
