Let me point out ONE thing: There is no such thing as a "certified" service animal. There is no protocal, training schedule, or requirements when it comes to being a service animal, other than mitigating a disability. There is no data base to check them on, there are no credientials. The service provided for the blind, the deaf and PTSD train dogs for more than 2 years but there is still no such thing as a "certified" service animal, there is no regulation of them. No one to verify they are up to date on vaccinations, training and healthy. The only way to cut down on fake service dogs, is for it to be federally regulated. With training, testing, certifications, vaccinations, health checks and a database that is Nationally maintained of those that are TRUE service animals. Everyone is scared of the ADA, but there has to be a way to verify a service animal and handler, with proper training....so that the danger to the public is minimal. Currently, the atmosphere in America is, "But I want it!!!" How dare you not give it to me?" Unfortunately, we have to stop spoiling the brats and put our foot down and regulate the training and certification of these wonderfully, helpful animals, to weed out the liars.
