Disability Access: SERVICE ANIMALS

Faculty classroom statement

Service Animal script (faculty)

There is a student in our class today who has a service animal. This animal is working and we ask that you not ask the name of the animal, as the calling of the animal’s name by others is distracting to the animal. Please do not touch, pet, talk to, feed or intimidate the animal. If you have concerns, please let me know or contact Andrea Roberson in Disability Access. Your assistance with this matter is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Service Animal Etiquette

Service Animal etiquette

Service Dogs are working for the individuals they are with. Distractions such as petting, food, and other noises may distract the service dog from doing its job.

Please follow these simple rules.

  •          Do not ask the name of the service dog.
  •          Never touch a service dog or the person who the animal is helping, without permission.
  •          Do not call the service dog or make any noises at the service dog
  •          Do not ever attempt to feed a service dog.

·         Do not be offended if a person with a service dog does not want to discuss their disability or the assistance that the service dog is providing to them.
