  1. I’m not sure how much his dog being in “training” makes, but I do think if people would stop pushing the boundaries of where to take pets that those who need them would experience fewer frustrations.

    If a business clearly has a policy of pets being okay then no worries, but I don’t think restaurants or grocery stores can. If you need a service animal, great bring him on in. If not leave your pet home.
