|For me it wasn't PSDs at all but what seemed to be a movement towards a destructive environment. I kept seeing more and more people who had no clue what they were doing being encouraged to OT a SERVICE DOG, and having people get mad at me and "remind me of the rules of the forum" when I pointed this out.
There also seemed to be a lot more of "Oh, I have social anxiety, can I make my 6-year-old pet dog Fluffy a SD and take her everywhere with me?" with the response being super encouraging. Whenever I would express my concerns, I would again be "reminded of the rules of the forum."
To me it had become a really, really destructive environment that is harmful to all SDs everywhere, and I just have no interest in being a part of that. It's sad, because there was also a lot of other good things going on here.
This is a totally separate issue from a specific type of service dog, but it did seem to just so happen that a lot of people who fell into this category did have PSDs, but that was completely irrelevant to my feelings on the issue.
