Service dogs perform specific tasks or behaviours to help people with visible and non-visible disabilities such as epilepsy, PTSD, diabetes or mobility limitations. Guide dogs support people with low or no vision by navigating around obstacles, finding bus stops and elevators, and similar tasks. Both guide dogs and service dogs are trained and tested to ensure safety in public. By law, qualified guide and service dog teams have the right to access any location where the public is allowed.
