The general public shouldn't pet ANY dog, pet, TD, SD or otherwise. TD should be petted only when the handler grants permission (in situations where the dog is acting as a TD, namely). It's not wise for anyone to approach any dog, doesn't matter if it's a pet, pet that's a TD, or SD.

Fact is there's far too much snobbery in the SD world lately. A little nice goes a long way.

Why the hostility? gee whiz. So your dog isn't a therapy dog, big deal. You said he was off duty. Therapy dogs do fabulous work, you should take it as a compliment not get snotty.

Certification is certification, and NO certification is required, period. That's the point. No argument, it's fact.

Kaylee, certification from ANYONE is unreasonable. It's bogus, no such thing as certification of a SD in the US. Not even programs "certify" dogs. shrug

Service & Therapy Dogs > Would this be considered a "real" service dog?

If it's pet friendly hotel/motel, great, but don't be bringing a "SD" that has been trained for home and nowhere else out to public places if it doesn't have the proper training. To me that's one of those things like using a loophole in the ADA to get your dog to go wherever you want to take it even though it's not trained for public.

I know this is old but just going through threads here and thought this was interesting. I know of programs that train dogs for home use and they specify the dog is for home use NOT to be taken in public. If dog has no public training it should not be taken in public. I've read of people who train their own pets and use them at home as helpers or whatever too. At home should be at home not in public. They don't belong in public if not trained for it. I know a man who has a little dog he says is his at home service dog but he brings it on vacation with him (went on a cruise and has stayed at hotels with it). Wrong. Dog isn't public trained. Keep it home.

@Mario, you keep your dog on duty at your own house? You said "friends were over" so I'm guessing you mean to your home? Dunno what he does for you, but odd never heard someone say they took their dog "off duty" in their own home. Weird you said lucky for the "ditz" he didn't bite her or pee on her sin ce he's a small dog. Why would he bite or pee, isn't he well trained? Don't give small breeds a bad rep, a well trained well socialized small breed wouldn't be peeing or biting.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Two SDs OK?

I know a person who uses two SDs; each are trained to do completely separate jobs, nothing whatsoever in common. Guide dog and alert dog.

Having two dogs do the same thing is ridiculous. There are some people I've seen online who do this. They say it's so they can switch back and forth between dogs, claim to be giving one a "break", but they end up bringing both everywhere with them to "train" together. Again, ridiculous. It's just an excuse to take two dogs everywhere.
