You see a dog enter a restaurant with a vest that says “service dog.” How do you, or the restaurant, know if the dog is actually a trained service dog? It’s a problem that has prompted more than a dozen states to crack down on people trying to pass off their pet as a service animal. “They make me angry, they really do,” said Colleen Belanger. Belanger has a service dog and she is upset people are using fake service dogs. She said it is a growing concern as more and more people are taking advantage of the system. Some dog owners buy service costumes online so they can take their untrained dogs into places they don’t belong.

Fun guy and nice mutt;) Wish I had thought of it – instead of leaving my puppy at the house while on routine errands. However, it’s not honorable.
I could solve this.
However, it’s not honorable.
From my perspective, he’s just taking the law to its logical conclusion.
I confess that I don’t know the wording of the law, but it should be limited to “hard” disabilities like blindness, not crap like “depression”.

Although scientists and archaeologists still debate when and where domestic dogs evolved from the gray wolf, most everyone agrees on this: Dogs — our first domesticated animal — formed a close bond with humans about 14,000 to 17,000 years ago.

I have a friend with a MASSIVE Bernese Mountain Dog. He only takes him where massive, sweet dogs are welcome, and he takes him wherever he possibly can. The doggie is a fixture here and is kind of the goodwill ambassador of Occoquan, VA.
I saw a pit bull in a supermarket.
Just like all other rules and laws to assist the ‘real’ disabled, this too has been taken over by fraudsters. Think handicap parking with fur.

Was it nekkid, or wearing a ‘Service Dog’ vest?
We have become such a pansy society, they consider a service dog one for emotional support. So that little POS in the purse is considered a service animal. Hell, that rat can’t even reach the light switch, let alone fetch slippers and a newspaper. My chocolate lab would fetch anything I asked for, except the cat.
Bernese Mountain Dogs are so beautiful I can’t imagine anybody would complain.
Wait, but not dead people voting, etc.?
