Re: SDIT Law in PA

If you had asked sooner it would have been easy. You could have contacted The Seeing Eye of Morristown NJ. They have puppy raisers all over this part of PA. This is from their web. Do you have an ID card? Does the dog have a vest?

12. Can we take our puppies everywhere, since they are going to be Seeing Eye dogs?

Although working Seeing Eye dogs are allowed access to all public places, Seeing Eye puppies in training are not. You will need to check with managers or owners before visiting public place to make sure it is OK. Respect the answer if it is no, and find another place. You don't need to take your puppy to food stores and restaurants and in fact, we don't encourage this. </span>

Apparently there is a difference in the law between a service dog and a service dog in training. What part of Pa are you going to?
