Avery. That’s his name. Avery is my service dog to help alert me when my medical condition arises.

Service dogs are amazing. The right dog can be trained to do almost anything to help their handler. There are service dogs that are trained to alert their handler to a multitude of different disabilities such as seizures, mobility issues, mental health, and even diabetes.

Service dogs have a very special and specific set of rules that are called the ADA law’s (Americans with Disabilities Act). These basically state that the service dog is allowed anywhere and has public access to go with their handler wherever they go. The only places that are allowed to reject or limit a service animals access are churches and zoos. While working, the public is not allowed/should not pet or distract the dog but when on break he can be played with.
