Thanks for the comment. I know people who do this who are otherwise good people, but I suspect they don’t think through the ramifications of their actions. It’s also so challenging because it’s hard to tell the difference between a “real” and “fake” service dog (although as you noted, there are many tell-tale signs in a lot of cases). Hoping that more education and awareness helps with this issue.

Like what you read? Give Melissa Dowler a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
