 Never leave the dog unattended in public or hotel.
 The dog must be properly groomed.
 Make sure your service dog is appropriately positioned under a table and/or out of the
way of foot traffic.
 Make sure your service dog does NOT go nose to nose with other service dogs. Your
service dog must keep its attention on the handler, not other service dogs.
