If a service or guide dog approaches you, it means that their owner needs help. Service and guide dogs are trained for a number of disabilities and services so you won’t know immediately what situation you’re going to help with.

The owner could be having an epileptic or diabetic seizure, or they might have fallen or passed out, and the dog knows in that situation that it needs to find a human to help.
