Coming to Herff in 2021...

In January 2021, we will welcome a Service Dog at Herff.


What is a Service Dog?


A Service Dog is an animal that has been trained to provide some type of service for its owner. There are dozens of uses for services dogs: seizure alert, hearing, guide, to name a few. Service Dogs are approved for people by a medical practitioner to help them perform day to day tasks or to make functioning in life easier. Because of the duties they perform for their handler, Service Dogs are allowed where pet dogs are prohibited. Your student will recognize a service dog by its vest, which can be an array of colors and styles, but will have some form of “service dog,” or “service animal” wording on the vest.

Guidelines for kids:

1. Service Dogs are “on duty” whenever they are with their handler. Explain to your children that the dog has a job to do and you don’t want to interrupt them while working.

2. Never ask why the person needs a Service Dog.

3. Don’t talk to a Service Dog. If you would like to ask a question about the amazing work the Service Dog does, ask the handler.

4. Do not distract the dog from its job by making kissy noises, barking, running and screaming, etc.

5. Always ask before petting any dog. Petting can distract them from their job, which could put the handler in danger.
