Service Dogs 101: Public Access Skills

Service dogs and their handlers have a responsibility each time they go into a public place. The teams should be relaxed and present a positive image of service dogs. Assistance Dogs International has established standards for service dog behavior in the Public Access Test including, but not limited to:

  • Controlled loading into and unloading out of a vehicle
  • Controlled approach to a building
  • Controlled entry and exit through a doorway
  • Heeling through a building
  • Six-foot recall on lead
  • Sit on command in various situations
  • Down on command in various situations
  • Control in a restaurant
  • Control when the leash is dropped
