Woman Denied SD, Company Kept $20K

This story really has me confused and unhappy. Can the company really kept the $20,000. Money raised for a service dog for this woman. I know they say it's in the contract she signed. Really it that right?!?! She only had 5.5 of boot camp and testing. I don't know how the process works. Intrested to hear your thoughts.

Wow. Sounds like a total scam...and targeting the handicapped? That's so foul

I agree....sounds like she was scammed big time and the letter was a total fudge. Hope the company gets creamed.

That's what I tought....SCAM. I feel bad for those who are handicapped and need help. Now their dreams of recieving help for a SD are destroyed by a group claming to help people gain their independence.

This is just sickening. Honestly what service dog doesn't listen to a command it's given? She obviously can speak and well enough to be understood if the dog was properly trained I would assume it should listen to a command given. If that dog didn't work they should have tried others. Obviously if in 6 months she raised the money it's not like they raised the dog specifically for her so they should have had her tested with a dog/dogs BEFORE taking her money to see if she could have a dog you don't approve someone then tell them afterwards no you can't have it.

Holmes, it sounds like she never REALLY got a chance to command the dog herself, because the trainers never left. The dogs were bonded to the trainers, and she was not given a real opportunity to work the dog herself.

There are scoundrels all over. I can see having a non-refundable deposit for all the testing and time training and paperwork, maybe $1000 tops, but 20k???

How sad, they definitely took her for a ride. However I can't see myself "donating" $21K to a FOR-profit LLC....the whole thing seems way off.
