This is great.... so many folks get confused and think a Pet Therapy dog has all the rights of a Service Dog.
I agree with 4goldengirls. Thanks for posting this! I often have people approach me when Gracie has on her therapy dog vest (which has therapy dog clearly written on it) and ask me what sort of disability she helps with. When I explain that Gracie goes to nursing homes to visit people and offer companionship and also to schools to be a reading buddy but is not trained as a service dog for an individual I am astonished at the number of people who then ask me when she will finish her training so she can finally be a service dog. Apparently there are a lot of people who think therapy dogs
are working their way up a career ladder to being service dog.
You can find it here:Where can the public get a copy of this chart showing the differences? I am a member of Pet Partners, a national therapy organization, and I would really like to have this to show to people who truly don't know the differences. Most people are very open to learning the differences and I think this can help with problems of some dogs being misrepresented.
