A Post from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA):
This week is International Assistance Dog Week, and we'd like to express our sincere appreciation of all of the service and assistance dogs out there, as well as the people who raise and train them to help others. Please honor them by respecting the role of the dogs, and not distracting them. And never try to masquerade your pet as a service/assistance animal if they're not one. .
