About Service Dog Public Access Test

SDTSI offers the official Public Access Test that prepares your Service Dog for active duty out in public.  SDTSI developed this program because no comprehensive process existed for the official certification of Service Dogs.

Dogs who fail the Public Access Test the first time are allowed to try again when they’re ready. Don’t rush your second chance, though, because two failures indicate that the animal, while it may be a fine companion, is not temperamentally suited for public activity as a Certified Service Dog by SDTSI.


Who should take this test?

The Public Access Test (PAT) is an annual assessment of SDTSI's suitability as a service animal accessing public spaces. The PAT is a part of this self-check and record-keeping. Some people even find it valuable to take the PAT again every few years after first passing it. This optional re-testing can give you the confidence you’re maintaining your training.


Upon successful completion of this Service Dog Public Access Test, you will receive a certificate upon completion. 

You will be so proud of your canine partner for being an exemplary model of how dogs can be well-behaved when they are well-trained! 

This test is used to assess a dog's suitability within the public area. The bottom line of this test is that the dog demonstrates that he/she is safe to be in public and that the person demonstrates that he/she has control of the dog at all times.
