I've heard that you should not interact with guide dogs. Is this true?

At your service

A guide dog is specifically trained to lead her blind human counterpart. Since she responsible for the safety and well being of a human being, it is best to consider the following:

• Don't try to get the attention of a guide dog, by calling her or distracting her.
• Do not offer her food or treats to distract her from her duties or her daily routine.
• If you want to pet a guide dog, always ask the owner's permission first.
