You are always to remain in control of your dog. 

People may ask to pet your dog, you may allow them to, however, the dog is to remain on a shorten leash while saying helloPlease ensure you have a vest for your service animal if you do NOT want people to ask about petting your dog. "Please do not pet me - I am working" is common to have on the animal's vest.
