I have no problem whatsoever with taking service dogs. I've actually hauled two pet dogs before thinking that perhaps, what if they're not properly vaccinated (I know service dogs are likely to be), etc. Then the potential issue with fleas. So, I'm not talking about disallowing SERVICE animals, but any of the sundry others that people like to call "service animals" but aren't, as you so aptly explain the difference between companion and service. I did not know that. I've only read about the plethora of people trying to get their dogs acknowledged as service and what seems to be willy-nilly regulation about the subject. Maybe I'm wrong about the latter.Seriously I think some of you guys may on some serious mental issues if you can't grasp the concept that YOU HAVE TO TAKE A SERVICE DOG. THE ONLY TWO REASONS you would really get out of it is A) Immediately asking if the dog is a COMPANION DOG, any legit service dog owner would correct you. Those that don't kick their ass to the curb.
B) If the dog shows any aggression (growling, showing teeth, muzzle punch, biting or even just nipping) or can't hold its bladder.
THATS IT... THERE ARE LITERALLY ZERO OTHER REASONS FOR YOU NOT TO TAKE FLUFFY.
