It's unsanitary and should not be allowed!

Nobody :(

As long as it doesn't beg for food.

What do you think about letting service dogs in restaurants?

Explained by Will_Janitor...

I saw this video and it made me wonder a few things. I have always liked dogs and especially well trained and disciplined dogs, but I understand that not everyone agrees with me on that. What makes a person go so crazy about something that seems to me to be so insignificant? I try to be tolerant of people's quirks, but this lady and I could not stay in an enclosed area for very long and both maintain our health.

To answer your question, I have no problem with it. I've seen blind people bring their dogs in, never bothered me.

The lady screaming is disgusting, loud mouth with zero class.

The livid woman should get a life.

I think the restaurant handled things as well as possible. Offered a nice apology for the incident and sponsoring a service animal event to help ****-wipes like the livid woman understand the importance of service animals.

I have no problem with them at all. I think some people simply don't like dogs. They say dogs are unsanitary but so are some people that eat in restaurants. (hehe)

Are these dogs able to service my car? If not, I don't care.

I have no problem with a service dog in a restaurant or anywhere else for that matter. They are well trained, don't bother the other patrons as they generally sit right next to their humans or under the table.

I'm perfectly fine with it, even when the dog's human doesn't have an obvious disability.
I found the woman's angry rant far "nastier" than most dogs ever are, and some of the comments on the link concerning it, equally so.

Man, what a disgusting attitude that woman has. Truly pathetic.

Of course there's nothing wrong with service animals in restaurants, most of them are probably cleaner than her, and ALL of them are better behaved.

Service dogs are absolutely essential for some people, and this woman was being very selfish and insensitive.
In fact, I'd rather have people bring regular pets into restaurants rather than crying screaming babies and children.

The only disgusting, nasty animal I saw was this screeching pos. I'm glad they kept the dog and she was the one to leave.

As long as it behaves, then why not? As in this video, the dogs seems to behave better than all of the people. Little kids and teenagers have been more unsanitary than the service dogs I've personally been around.

I like animals, and most dogs can be irresistible ...

For most, they bring smiles and happiness, and service dogs are, for most, a wonderful companion for a professional or a handicapped person.

I don't see any problem with letting service dogs into a restaurant.

But it is also sad for people having to deal with dog allergies or for some having been bitten by an improperly educated or mistreated dog. A good restaurant will certainly know a solution, and there are medical treatments, like for pollen and other allergies.

In most cases, though, the hystery of certain people is rather a fear of "lacking hygiene", microbes or bacteria, etc., further the smell (especially of a wet dog) or of a mischievous dog stealing one's steak, etc. ...



(smile)

Unfortunately, for the funny part, I'll have to add another "but": human food can also be very bad for dogs; so don't feed or tempt an adorable dog with or into stealing inadequate things, and respect also the service dog's work:

I don't think that many blind people go out to eat alone. All these people holding little mutts saying they are service dogs is nuts. Allow the blind person not anyone else. Around here pit bull service they say dogs are common. I don't want them near food they might kill a kid if it held a french fry.

There are legal requirements for the use of a service dog and there are certifications. It is up to the public business to ask for these documents though.

If it's been trained not to beg for food from anyone - master included - it wouldn't bother me.
