|Harley, you make a good point about gear.
I agree, but I also think unless there is some outstanding reason that people should attempt to mark there service dog. It makes it clear to the public and that goes a long way towards helping us And business's because then customers don't think a random dog in the store unmarked means the store is pet friendly.
Good point with the flexi... I wouldn't have thought of that, though having the dog off lead would be similar. My problem with this dog is that it was untrained.
I don't know if it was a service dog under the law or not... which is where I have a problem... because the level of training that is required by the law makes it easy to fake a service dog. And because doctors aren't educated on service dogs and the law.
I had an appointment with a new psychiatrist today... and she'd Never heard of psychiatric service dogs. If someone came to her with incorrect information or half way researched information she might easily be convinced to write a prescription. She feel completely in love with Happy (it isn't hard to do when he's being charming) and I left her with information and links to further research them.. but my point is there has to be some sort of way to educate.
Because this man and his dog could have been completely well meaning but uneducated, ultimately that's his fault but it doesn't change what it is.
