Greetings all,


Has anybody had students in labs with service dogs?


If so, have they made any special accommodations or instructions?


Off the top of our heads we have come up with:


·         Position the dog behind you or under the bench rather that at the side if possible.

·         If leashes are necessary or required, use a joggers leash for hands free capability.
