Service dogs are ALSO pets.
They are a part of the family, lie around in the living room, love affection, play fetch and have all the same needs as a "regular" pet. They are just trained and registered with the state and are therefore service dogs as well.

The guy had a dog, and there was a no pets policy. It had nothing to do with his being a veteran. Sensational headlines are sensational.

Also, "You Won't Believe Why?" This isn't Facebook. Stick to the source material and stop trying to bait members.


It doesnt matter if they have a no pets policy, the law clearly states one cannot discriminate against the handicapable or their service animals for any reason.


Then people are freakin' stupid. I don't know what else to tell you. Haters gonna hate?

At the moment, all I see are ignorant people who hate or are fearful of dogs and hence, they call them pets. They have absolutely no clue as to the training these dogs receive to document them as service dogs. These dogs are not just picked up at a pound or kennel and given away willy-nilly with documentation but no training. That would be illegal.

Service dogs/animals are not pets just because you view them as such. They have been trained to serve a purpose.

If you have a problem with the by line that the OP used (which is not theirs), then start a thread about something along those lines.

If you have a problem with people abusing the system or scamming it. Then start a thread along those lines. I'd probably back you 100%.

You think since we are calling them pets that we hate or are scared of dogs? Where do you get off? Just recently had to give my up cause of a move and I miss her terribly.
And yes there are service dogs that go through intense training, there are also "therapy" dogs that don't go through much more then a couple legal procedures and then get certified as a service dog. Know a couple of people that did that nd did 0 training just the court stuff from docs and whoever else is needed
Oh and you want to call out hit and run post; where is the op poster??

How are you to know a dog is documented legitimately if you are not even allowed to ask for the documentation and there is no way of checking the legitimacy of their certification. The law states you can't even ask for documentation or the purpose the dog serves. As I stated these vest and papers can be bought cheaply. I have two dog currently (Akita and PitBull) and have had over 7 in the years I can remember so to say ppl are afraid of dogs is..... well ignorant at best.

Why are so many non-issues spun into news stories today? And this one is even below "non-issue". She didn't know what a service dog was. Ooooooooo And you guys arguing over whether it's a pet or not?

They are pets. In the court of law, they are more pets than anything else. They are not humans, they are not guns, they are not tools or weapons or taxable services that you pay to have rendered to you. They are living creatures who provide companionship when they are not in professional capacity and provide guidance and stability when they are in professional capacity. This is a function that many pets fulfill regardless of whether they are certified service dogs or not.


Service dogs/animals are not pets just because you view them as such. They have been trained to serve a purpose.


So service animals fall under the same category as a standard issue rifle or uniform, in your opinion? I find that horrendously objectifying. Calling them pets, at least, assumes the presence of a companion relationship. Which is a far sight better than regarding them as a tool to be used and discarded.

A waste of my time and everyone else's. Thanks for the preemptive support though.

I think it's a matter of different definitions of the word. SO many times, people will argue endlessly over something, only to find out that they're working from a different set of assumptions.

I gotta be honest, harping on the point that he is a veteran is pandering.

Plenty of people with service dogs face this every day. But its only newsworthy when it is a veteran. Why?

Just for reference, I have never had issues with my dogs staying with me at LaQuinta Inns.
Just saying for the 4 legged lovers out there.

You can physically tell when a person is blind, not only the facial atrophy but their mannerisms as well.
PTSD is invisible, and I believe other than a few special cases it is reserved for soldiers who have seen and done horrible things against their better judgment.
HOWEVER....PTSD is becoming quite the issue nowadays as everyone can get it.
I know a little girl who got diagnosed with PTSD simply because her mother yelled at her.
Doctors seem to be throwing this diagnosis out like their prescriptions.

Again, many, many people deal with this with their service animals that arent veterans. PTSD isnt just something you get from war. I have a good friend who suffers PTSD due to the loss of his twin sister in a catastrophic car accident.

I have another who has it because they lost their parents when they were young.

The fact that this person is a veteran has nothing to do with the story, and is only put in their to pander.

Go back a hundred years and loss of someone close, generally due to terrible circumstances was a very common thing.
People just got on with life somehow.
Fast forward a hundred years, and people get PTSD when their I-Phone won't charge..
Very real indeed.

just because they didnt have a term for it back then doesnt mean it existed.

That you would minimize it to "iphone wont cgarge" shows your complete and utter lack of understanding of it or empathy toward those who have it.
