Guidelines change for allergy service dogs

New guidelines are in place for service dogs, and it gives the animals more access to businesses.

Those with Angel Service Dogs say the new guidelines now include the phrase "alerting individuals to the presence of allergens."

The founder of Angel Service Dogs says they train their dogs to detect any allergen from peanuts to dairy.

With the new guidelines, these dogs will now be able to enter places where they usually aren't allowed.

"We were always covered under the law," said Sherry Mers, founder of Angel Service Dogs. "This is just making it very tight for individuals to be able to show this to a business, and say, 'No, my dog is detecting allergens for me, and I have need for this dog.'"
