Why can’t I pet the service dog?

Service dogs are raised specifically to tend to the needs of one person. Their focus and dedication are crucial to help their human. If someone were petting them every time they were in public they will start seeking out that attention instead of focusing on their handler. Also, while you’re petting them they could be missing crucial alerts for a medical emergency! 
Plus you wouldn’t pet someone’s wheelchair or oxygen tank would you? Service dogs are necessary medical equipment for those who have them. Not a pet they get to take everywhere. 
Please be kind, no touching, no talking to, no distracting a service dog. 🐶
