Properly trained service dogs should be an accepted part of society, and impersonating a service dog is a class-3 misdemeanor, said Cash.

“I don’t want people to think they need to completely move out of the dog’s way,” Cash said. “But they do need to know that it’s customary to ask the handler if it’s OK to touch the dog first. We need people to know that the dogs aren’t scary — it’s OK to have them around.”
