|My first step would always be to put yourself between your stepfather and Tank. Don't give him access in the way you're standing to him. Have Tank stand at alert behind your husband or down him out of reach. Sometimes this will be enough but rather than treating this like a law issue I think you need to treat it like a dog issue... he's Your dog. If you don't want him messing with him tell him so. This is one of those people you have to cut off contact with our dogs completely. Bringing the law into it on these types of things is never what I feel to be the best idea. This is a family member that you will have to deal with on a continuing basis. Tell him straight off. "No, I need you to not distract him while he's working." Be firm.
Now... as to the info on the law.. it looks like you're in Indiana, if that is the case then you don't have SDiT rights at all, and protection under state law only covers guide dogs, hearing dogs and dogs for physical disabilities.
