COPE FACILITY DOG APPLICATION FORM
COPE Service Dogs’ approach to placing a Facility dog focuses on three major areas: the facility; the handler
(the person(s) handling the dog at work) and primary caretaker (the person(s) who will be the dog’s
caregiver/look after and be responsible for the dog at home); and the dog’s role in your facility.
A Facility Dog is a certified working dog that can provide support, therapy and/or education in the
workplace and is paired with an employee or employees to help better serve your clients. The Facility Dog
is allowed at the place of work as permitted by the employer, however, the handler of the dog does not
have legal rights to access public places or use public facilities (such as public transportation) with the
Facility Dog. The public access rules for pet dogs applies to the Facility Dog outside of the work place.
