Part of the funding is from the government and social donations, and blind people apply for guide dogs for free. (Photo by Wang He/Getty Images)
Look, we all want to pet all the dogs but when they’re working you have to respect them!
A woman who was shopping in a mall got offended when the trainer of a service dog wouldn’t allow her toddler daughter to pet the animal. The woman argued that there were no signs that prohibited the dog from being petted, however, the trainer said that there were signs on the dog’s leash. The woman said she was going to contact her lawyer, however, the trainer argued that it is a misdemeanor to harass service dogs. The woman then complained about being filmed before walking away and grabbing her phone to presumably contact authorities.
