Unfortunately, service dogs in training do not hold any of the same legal protections from either the federal or state government here in Michigan.  You may want to check state law where you live and see if that differs for you.


By law, and I almost hate to admit this:


Businesses that do not normally allow pets inside are under no legal obligation to allow your service dog in training access.  However, if you are with an accepted school, most businesses will welcome you and your dog gladly into their business.  Just keep in mind, they are being kind by allowing this access.  Law enforcement can not insist on it, nor with the American’s with Disabilities Act support your right to enter.
