Karyl Carmignani of Canine Companions for Independence recently wrote to Dear Abby, giving people a well-needed reminder about the role that service dogs play in society.  

“People need to know how to behave around assistance dogs so they don’t endanger the person with a disability or the dog,” states Karyl, and continues by providing tips such as never feed or offer food to a working dog and do not let your dog initiate contact with a working dog while it’s on duty.
