"uniforms". That way the mundane authorites can tell at a clance that
they are working dogs, not pets (this is the best way of ending any
argument with the people at gate). Like wheelchairs, these are
something that I would gladly use my visual filter to accept. Also,
many have been taught to aproach a working dog differently then a pet.
For the sake of the SCA folk and ease of the site crew, I would
contact the Autocrat for the event before the event and have papers
for the dog to give to the person at the gate and a copy for the
chiurgeon. The autocrat can inform the site owner of the helper dog
coming --there are many laws on the books that insure that he is
welcome-- and be ready for you at the gate (remember many people at
gate are new).
I know its extra work, but it beats getting to an event only to have
to argue your way in.
