Service Dog protocols
I am currently residing in Washington state and have looked up the state laws for service dogs. Here in Washington they do not require you to register your service dog. (I will be anyway) But I was wondering if there is any protocol I have to go through to start bringing my service dog into public places beside having a Service dog in training vest. My little guy is almost 6 months and I was told that at this age I should start training him in public areas such as malls and grocery stores. I suffer from seizures and he already has down his alert so the sooner I can start taking him with me the better.
He also has all of his basic commands down such as heel, stay, auto sit, down and come, all of these commands he knows on lead and off. I have been training him since he was 8 weeks old.
Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!
