Please note: Service dogs can not be patted or interacted with. By doing so you are preventing them from doing their trained medical job.
If you are unsure if the dog is an assistance dog. Look for the jacket the dog is wearing. It will have a credited organisation on the jacket.
Alternatively the owner will have an ID card. It is illegal to deny someone access to a public space because of their service dog. Please don’t yell or cause a scene. It’s very overwhelming for the dog and the owner.

Mental health Advocate; Occupational Therapy Teacher and Researcher
“As an occupational therapist diagnosed with BPD I will use this page to share about the various interventions and strategies that are helpful to those with BPD.
I will also share about the positive and sometimes challenging approaches that health professionals have used in my treatment in emergency, inpatient, outpatient and community settings.
I hope that by sharing my lived experience I can help improve the experience of those struggling to understand Borderline Personality Disorders (BPD) and also support those living with BPD and other mental health challenges
Most importantly we will share how occupation can powerfully help change lives!"
