Service Dog Laws

Service dogs basically have the same rights that people do. They can go wherever a person can go and business owners cannot deny access. "Neither a deposit nor a surcharge may be imposed on an individual with a disability as a condition to allowing a service animal to accompany the individual with a disability, even if deposits are routinely required for pets." Also, service dogs are not required by law to wear a vest, but most handlers have them wear one anyway.

I think that Buzz is going to make our lives so much better in so many ways, but I can also see some people getting pretty upset that we have a dog go with us everywhere. Has anyone on here had to deal with a situation like that? How did you handle it?

I do know that if you look around on the internet you can find lots of groups against service dogs.  People think that dogs should stay at home.  I always thought that was discrimination.

My only thought is in schools having it be difficult to have a dog there.  Our school doesn't allow it.  Too many allergies and it is of distraction toother kids.  This is in the younger grades that I'm speaking of.  I can see where it would be hard in a main stream classroom.

But otherwise, I've known a man to bring his dog to work that was blind.  Very helpful.  As an adult in a work place, you fight any temptation to see the dog as a dog and rather see the dog as your coworker's helper.  

Service dogs are doing a job and it isn't like bringing your pet someplace.  Sad there are groups against it.
