IACP's Service Dog Committee

The IACP Service Dog Committee is dedicated to the proper education of the general public, professional trainers and business owners regarding the utilization and/or training of Service Dogs. 

The IACP Service Dog Committee supports public access and proper training for service dogs.  The service dog must be able to mitigate the symptoms in the person with the disability and to reflect the proper standards of behavior.  Any service dog or any service dog in training that does not reflect proper standards of behavior should be asked to leave the public environment.  Trainers should be sure the dog can meet the standards of behavior before taking the dog into public access areas.
