Thank all the fruit cakes that abuse this right for the cop that was jaded towards service dogs.
There are some good cops, most of them are too proud to admit a mistake. This should have been squared away before it became an issue. It's a federal issue if they want to push it. The union will protect the jaded or just plain stupid cop and the officer will never be held accountable for his actions. The only way to change things in this case is to sue their asses off for a civil rights violation.

I found the thread. Thanks for the link. I am glad to see I was no the only one who had questions.
I don't know how to oversee some type of national certification system. But I do think something needs to be done. Maybe now that "big name" service dog organizations are calling for some regulation the powers that be will take notice and act. Hopefully they won't make the situation worse.

Then people could still train their own dogs or whatever the current thought is on all that, about whether or not it would be too difficult for individuals in remote areas to obtain a trained dog or take the dog for testing.

I hope I did this right:

I looked here, but didn't see anything. I must have missed it. I read where the gentleman stated that the dog provides mobility assistance, but I could find any information that verified that. I thought mobility dogs wore a harness designed for that task?
A woman was in the public library here and she was asked what task her dog provided for her and she made a huge scene, claiming they couldn't ask her any questions about her disability and sharing information on what task the dog did would be divulging the nature of her disability. The dog had no vest or other identifying insignia.
I really wish there could be some unifying, national certification for service dogs. It seems to me it would make life so much easier for legitimate handlers (even those handlers that aren't blind!), and make it harder for the cheats to get away with it.

Disabled Vet Told To Leave Boardwalk

I can't seem to figure out if this was an emotional support dog, a "real" service dog or a pet that the owner bought the vest and patches for. None of the news pieces really specify.
