SACRAMENTO, Calif.

At the state capitol Monday Assm. Michael Allen, D-Santa Rosa said the rules should help reduce the awkwardness that sometimes includes other patrons, and especially restaurant staff, when a party includes a guide dog.

"There are ways for everyone involved to find opportunities for increased understanding, better understanding of the etiquette guide dog teams are following," said Allen.
