5. Never grab the dog
You may offer to assist the handler and their dog, but do not insist. If you see an assistance dog team that looks like they need help, ask before acting. Never attempt to grab the dog’s harness. This will greatly affect the dog’s ability to assist it’s handler and it won’t be able to do its job effectively. Trying to help the owner and their dog may actually end up making things more difficult for them, so make sure to be careful and respectful.
