2020 ASDPMV Service Dog Conference Service Dog EtiquetteWelcome and thank you for attending the 2020 ASDPMV Service Dog Conference. While
attending the conference please be advised that the following service dog etiquette will be enforced. Only service dogs are allowed in the conference. Therapy dogs and ESA dogs are not allowed access to ASDPMV conferences.

You will be asked to remove your service dog from the premises if they:
 Make a mess on the floor
 Bite, bark at or jump on another patron
 Wander away from their owner
 Are disruptive

Etiquette for Interacting with People Using Service Dogs:
 Speak to the person, not the animal.
 Cooing at, whistling at, or otherwise distracting the dog is not appropriate.
 Do not touch the service dog without receiving permission.
 Do not offer food to the service dog.

Service dog public etiquette:
 The dog must always be leashed and within 24 inches of the handler unless performing a task that requires them to be further away.
 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.
