SERVICE DOGS AT WOLFF'S FLEA MARKET

Service dogs are allowed at Wolff's Flea Markets and all public places. 

We do not allow other pets or animals at the market. Please leave your pets at home and not in your vehicle as temperatures can reach dangerous extremes.

From http://www.ada.gov/regs2010/service_animal_qa.html:

"Many people with disabilities use a service animal in order to fully participate in everyday life. Dogs can be trained to perform many important tasks to assist people with disabilities, such as providing stability for a person who has difficulty walking, picking up items for a person who uses a wheelchair, preventing a child with autism from wandering away, or alerting a person who has hearing loss when someone is approaching from behind."

SERVICE DOGS: By law service dogs are allowed in the market. If staff does not know if dog is a service animal, they are allowed to ask two questions. Person needs to answer both questions. 


  1. Is the dog a service animal required  because of a disability? 

                                     Yes: allow entry    No: deny entry or call manager

      2. What work or task has the dog been trained to perform? 

                           Gives answer: allow entry     No answer/refuses: call manager
  • Staff are not allowed to request papers for the dog, require dog to demonstrate its task, or ask about the the person's disability
  • Dog is not required to wear a special vest, patch or harness
  • Dog may be any breed or size
  • Staff will announce briefly on walkie that they have cleared a service dog’s entry and describe the dog and person
  • Call manager immediately with questions or issues
  • Customers or vendors with questions about this policy can call 847-524-9590 or go to:  http://www.ada.gov/regs2010/service_animal_qa.html
