I don’t know about you, but we’ve seen an increase in the number of service dogs coming into our office. While many are legitimate, some, unfortunately, are not, and while we certainly don’t want to alienate anyone, it could cause problems for some.

So, what can you do about it without upsetting or alienating patients?

Here’s a very simple solution we came up with that has worked wonders!
