The problem is nobody wants to challenge the fake service dogs/comfort dogs for fear of discrimination lawsuits.
Toojay's restaurant has a sign that says service dogs allowed, and"comfort" dogs are not service dogs.

I have no problems with dogs in restaurants, nor kids, as long as they behave. In Germany that has been common for decades but children and dogs, and especially dogs, still behave much better there than here. For a dog that means to lay down under the table and stay there, if it does not stay there or barks and growls the dog has to leave.

As for service dogs, my oldest son has a Giant Schnauzer that he registered as a service dog. It is a simple process and costs $100. He did it to save on rent and have a real dog, not a little battery operated critter. Having it registered as a service dog lifts the size and breed restrictions.

That kind of abuse is why people are pissed off. Shame.

Exactly. Frankly it's akin to people faking disability to get a disability parking permit.

It is pretty hard to fake a disability to get a DP permit as they changed the guidelines a few years back. What you will see a lot is people using someone else's placard. This really pisses me off as I see it every day at work.... Here I am looking for a handicap space when I come in and all I see are full spaces with people that work 12 hour shifts on their feet the whole time. The whole predicate of needing one is the inability to walk more than 100 feet without having to stop and rest.
Half of my resolutions to problems come with a cold sweat somewhere around 2 am.

It would be easy to make a little 9V screamer device that only the dogs could hear. They'd go nuts. Of course, the prudent dog baiter would include an ON/OFF switch so it wouldn't be screaming all the time :-)

I made something similar for a co-worker. It was tuned to make noise on the local CB band and was low powered so it only worked when tossed onto the neighbor's roof, near his CB antenna :-)

Diabetes service dogs.... bitch stab yourself like everyone else and check your sugar
Hard to do when within 5 minutes my Blood Glucose can drop to the mid 20's. Try that sometime good sir! Look up brittle diabetes sometime. The true diabetic with issues however is not the problem. I do not take my dog into stores. Of course I am lucky enough to have family around that can go with me that know the signs.

Yes I am in a trial for a device that constantly monitors my BG levels. Hopeful at this point as it seems to be working.

So as usual there is always an exception. However it is correct that this has been overdone by any stretch. I too am sick of seeing dogs everywhere I go.

so your dog bites you, then checks your sugar and administers Insulin ?? =:wvr

sounds like you shouldn't leave the house, have your drivers license revoked, etc.... you're a burden to society

I have had dogs that went everywhere with me. But they stayed in the car or truck. In hot or cold weather I would leave vehicle running.
Problem with that is engines and AC units can fail at the worst times. If it happens to fail when you are inside poor Fido will be roasting until you come back out and in Florida heat it doesn’t take long at all for the temperature to reach life threatening levels. Something as simple as a failed pressure switch or blown fuse and you might not have a dog anymore.

Not quite. Dog alerts if it senses my blood sugar is dropping. Yeah Google it, a very real issue. Also does well when it happens at night when I am asleep. Squirt will while and grab at me until myself out someone checks. The dog is trained to do that by smell. He can tell my sugar far better and faster than I can. Then we check with the meter and adjust it as needed.

Say what you want but it has saved my life. Now, I understand only 1 percent of those needing the dogs are not the ones folks complain about. You see most of us understand how people feel and don't take our dog into the grocery stores.

And no I no longer drive alone. You are correct there. I already lost my CDL.

There are valid reasons for Support Dogs and I think we can all agree on that. The real ones are trained and unbelievably helpful to their owners.

"Miniature Toy and TeaCup Poodles" are general not used for such purposes.
Here in "Beautiful Downtown Boca Raton" I think I've seen more Emotional Support Dog vests than anyone else on this forum except for our brave airline pilots and stewardesses who fly the Fla-To-NY-To-Fla corridor daily. (May God watch over you all and keep you safe) These people are um, "Special" and really should be riding in the Short Bus or the Short Plane, whichever applies. They are a plague on society but think they ARE Society. f/;k em & the ho they rode in on.

Like anything else there are always those that screw it up for the rest. Hell I tried to get my wife to let me get a diabetes hooker instead of a dog. You can guess how well that worked.

And in case anyone (this is for you Rent) cares or wonders:

Yeah most of what I need happens at night. That is another reason I do not take him into a grocery or other store. But he does travel with me. Mainly due to motel stays when I travel. He can alert me before my level gets to dangerous stage. We are even working on training him to hit a alert button if I do not respond. Yeah the "I have fallen and can't get up button". Lol

Live bald-faced or any goddamn hornets as an emo pet is a good one my man, the visual I'm having is spectacular!!! :ber
Picturing you sitting in the plane seat holding up the branch topped off with the hornets nest and the hornets buzzing all around your head and you hollering over the buzzz, "I need FOUR Bloody Mary's NOW!" A Hunter S Thompson moment for sure.
