More than Four Paws: 

Everything You Wanted to Know about Service Dogs but Were Afraid to Ask

 

Where: University Hall 25 (basement floor of 601 S. Nedderman Dr, UT Arlington)

When: Wednesday, May 3, 12-1 pm

 

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between service dogs and emotional support animals?  How to interact with a person and their service dog? What rights do people and their service dogs have? Is it acceptable to ask to pet a service dog? 

 

This roundtable brings together service dog users (and their dogs) from the Arlington Mayor’s Committee on People with Disabilities, TCU’s Service Dog Organization, and UTA to share their experiences working with mobility assistance, psychiatric service, medical response, and guide dogs.

 

Speakers:  

Aaron Gadsen & Keeper, UTA

Jordan Roselli & Draco, TCU Service Dog Organization

Carl Kurtz & Kheshma, TCU Service Dog Organization

Donna Mack & Wella, Arlington Mayor’s Committee on People with Disabilities
