Not everyone is comfortable sharing why they need a service dog or if they have a disability/what that disability is. Its illegal for store owners to ask what disability you have when you walk in with a service dog. Its usually just polite to not ask, especially if the owner hasn't included that bit of information. If its a dog meant to deal with PTSD, you get people that start asking 'what happened?' which sometimes triggers people. It also opens up a personal conversation with strangers that sometimes people just don't want to have.mental note, do not ask what service a service dog does, apparently it is insulting or somethin??
nice dog OP.
I wasn't trying to make you feel like you can't discuss service dogs ever again or to attack you for your comment. I just wanted to share some information from a personal point of view, from raising a soon to be service dog and having friends that currently use service dogs. Sometimes it can open up an uncomfortable conversation for the owners. We are pretty open about discussing why we have a service dog and how it will help, but a close friend of mine gets very uncomfortable having to talk to strangers about why she needs one.point taken ten-fold, i do not want to know, no harm intended. i was just interested in another aspect of working dogs. the matter is now closed for me. i will take this as a learning experience when discussing service dogs, in fact i won't discuss them again ever.
as far as i knew service dog could have meant a police K09 apprehension dog.
