No. In therapy work he might want to visit someone and that someone might be terrified of dogs and freak out. I don't know about anyone else, but when we go to the nursing home we walk slowly through the common area and he is right at my side, when someone approaches he automatically sits down, if they are in a chair he sits and puts his back to them so they aren't leaning or in his face,when I stop moving he sits down, and I watch around us to make sure he isn't getting rushed. As far as teaching those things I really didn't, he has had obedience classes and only had those for less then a month when he took the CGC and they recommended he get certified. He really just knows what to do, it comes naturally to him.
