or....just a friendly warning.

Well if you are following this closely there's no rules except for when there are rules.
But don't tell anyone.
I still think they should use tactical K9 logos to back people off.....

I have always been taught to leave service dogs alone, as they are working. But if there is nothing identifying them as a service dog, then how do I know that I should not walk up to someone, complement their dog, and ask if I can pet the dog?
Or, should I just get my own dog?

Aw man, Paul logged off.
I was hoping he would edumicate me on how this is such an important civil right:

Yeah, rather then blasting on to this board and trying to throw your weight around, Paul you might want to look at the foundations of the argument here.
Since you're a PhD I'm assuming you know an argument to authority is a fallacy but then given the swearing and concern for matching outfits, maybe not. Perhaps you should be lecturing your facebook service dog peeps on the importance of how serious service dogs should be treated, by everyone.

You and your facebook friend have certainly converted me from an advocate to an adversary on this topic.
So go ahead, keep swearing, demeaning and pontificating, it just makes me all the more convinced that the service dog community is unprofessional, not serious, unfairly demanding and uncaring about working with others to achieve common goals.

Here ya go "Professor Paul".
This is what all the brew-ha-ha is about.
Being a man of higher learning I'm sure you can agree that outfits clashing with a working dog gear is real problem.
Civil rights in the modern age. I'm sure Dr. Martin Luther King would approve.
The thing is, I was nice about that comment at first. Didn't really highlight how ridiculous it is and until I get attacked and someone swearing a blue streak in his very first post on this board.
btw, in case you didn't notice your pseudo swearing was edited by a moderator.
FWIW some business owners are thinking a way to resolve this is to video anyone who comes in with a dog. That way if the dog fails (that means doesn't display proper OB) the poor business owner will have some objective evidence with which to protect himself from frivolous law suits.

I personally love German Shepherds. I love my Service Dog, I do "tell" people that she is a service dog IF they ask when I am out in public, but most of the time I get comments like "She's Beautiful." and I say quickly "Thank You." and then give my SD the command 'Laufen' ('Walk on') ... but the suggestions coming out of this thread on this subject are right out of 1938 Berlin.
How about we not try to dictate how the Disabled are to act, or what they wear, but instead, for the people here who made one of these "trying to be helpful but said something totally offensive and discriminatory" suggestions: try and look at it in another way...
My experiment above is to see how viral the circle of reinforcement of this "behavior modification training" is in the general public, by equating the Service Dog mentally with "Disability" instead of with "Fido in the back yard" which is what most people have experience with.
