|No, service dogs are not supposed to bark all the time. But this isn't a service dog, it's a service dog in training. But no, it shouldn't be left alone so long. How is it being trained if it's left all alone? And by allowing it to continue barking that way, he's allowing the dog to develop bad habits that will make it hard for the dog to become a good service dog down the road.
I wonder who is training the dog? If he's trying to train a service dog himself, it sounds like he doesn't quite know what he's doing.
As far as whether he can take the dog places with him as a service dog in training, I don't know how old the dog is or how much training it has had yet. It may not be ready for public access training. In New York state, people that are qualified to train service dogs can take service dogs in training into public places, but I don't know if this guy is qualified to train a service dog, so I don't know if he would have the right to take the dog places or not.
The dog itself doesn't have rights of public access, by the way. It's the person with a disability or the qualified trainer that has rights, not the dog.
