Learn to accept guide dogs - SHANGHAI -

From this month, blind people in Shanghai are allowed to take their guide dogs on public transportation and into public venues, under a new regulation that came into effect under the country's law on the protection of disabled people.

However, regulation facilitating guide dog use in Shanghai is not new at all. The city introduced its first rules governing the keeping of dogs, the Shanghai Dog Management Regulations, in 2011.

The regulations stated specifically that guide dogs were exempt from laws that ban pets and animals from public buildings such as hospitals, department stores and hotels, and from boarding buses and trains.
