Respect My Uniform: I pledge not to distract Guide Dogs in harness

This petition had 143 supporters


You wouldn’t place your hands over the eyes of a taxi driver concentrating on the road ahead, or pat a surgeon on the back mid-way through an operation, as the consequences could be disastrous.

It would be just as irresponsible to distract a working Guide Dog.

Each day, members of the public place the safety of Guide Dog handlers at risk by patting, feeding and interacting with Guide Dogs, tasked with assisting those who are blind or vision impaired to independently get to where they need to go.

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is urging the public to resist patting or distracting working Guide Dogs.
