As I said in my first post, the instructor at the workshop I helped with last week stressed to the attendees that they were representing all service dogs and it was their duty to keep the dog clean, well-groomed, and under control at all times. Even a service dog can be asked to leave if it is out of control or soils the premises.

It is past time for facility owners to understand the law even better than the person with the service dog. I have suggested that our group create door signs that spell out the store owner's rights and responsibilities, including the actions that will cause a service dog (real or fake) to be ejected.
