Me and my friend both have a SD that is trained to do specific tasks for us and it helps make mine and her days liveable. While we were at fair for 4H dogs, we noticed a guy that has a daughter in 4H walking around with one of the LHGSDs he owns with a SD vest on. We didn't really think much of it since we don't know them so we waved it off. Well, a few hours later when we sitting outside with our SD, we noticed the dog's vest said SAR in Training. Now we're confused because a SAR dog should not be walking around on the fair grounds since it's illegal to walk a non SD in public. My friend walks over and asks to pet the dog and what kind of SD his dog was, acting like we never saw the SAR patch, and he flat out says she's a SAR dog in training. My friend then asks how he can walk her on the grounds since she's not a SD and being a smarty pants he says, "with a leash." She then tells him it's illegal and he starts yelling at her saying that he can have the dog on grounds and says stop petting my dog and walks off. During the whole fair time, we talked to the dog superintendant and then the one of the people on the fair boards that my friend knows and he finally gets taken out by a security officer. Then guess what, he comes BACK inside the building the next day llike nothing happened. Another thing that happened was that this dog tried to attack a little girl, almost attacked my SD, Isa, and then did attack another dog while he was argueing with the superintendant which was the last straw for her so he was kicked out of the barn and no longer welcomed unless the dog was taken off the grounds. He continued to argue with her and one of the board members and was allowd to walk on fair grounds but not into the barn but this still was illegal and not fair to us who actually need and have a SD. People like him make it hard for us to go out with a SD since people have had bad experiences because of people like him. I just had to rant about this because it angers me.
