People with legitimate service animals don’t use them because we want a dog at our feet 24/7/365. The ADA.gov states they have to perform a “life essential skill.”
If your so-called service dog sits in your purse at Walmart but stay home while you’re at work – It’s not performing a life essential skill. If your so-called service dog stays home when you go to a movie or out to eat – It’s not a legitimate service animal.
Those of us with legitimate service animals need them every day. We need them at work. We need them at school. We need them at home. We need them at the movie. We need them at the restaurant. We need them all the time.
And we don’t carry them in purses or shopping carts. They WALK ON THEIR LEGS. They don’t bark at other dogs. They don’t pee on the floor. They remain at our feet at all times.
If you’re going to have a fake service dog, the least you could do is house break the damn thing and keep it under control.
