    Nicely done! I have a service dog. In the service dog community, one of the biggest fears is running into an untrained, aggressive ESA in a store. Most people don’t see the problem with taking their pets into stores, but it can cause a huge distraction for a service dog which could lead to a health crisis with its handler.

    I have a small service dog a chihuahua actually so small dogs are just as good and smart too I don’t like the title and the dogs figure because the one with the green vest that says service dog is a big dog and a little chihuahua with a red vest as a esa I don’t like that again I have a small service dog a chihuahua

    I didn’t really like the thumbnail, I’m sorry I’m not trying to be rude but I have a small dog I’ve been thinking about making my service dog and a lot of people have small service dogs and I don’t want them to get the wrong idea, cause it you can’t see that it says ESA

    I have a service dog and had an unfortunate accident with an ESA in a mall a couple years ago. The ESA was on a retractable leash and barking at everyone. I tried to avoid it as I saw it was being aggressive and notified security. The security guard said he’ll escort them and so I obviously thanked him. Unfortunately we passed by each other as she was being escorted out and her ESA was a full grown German Shepherd which is what scared me the most. Her dog lunged over to my dog and latched it’s teeth onto my dog’s front leg. That dog would not let go until the owner called it back. Luckily I had a couple witnesses, including the nice security guard, but my dog fell to the floor. My attention was completely on her. I got down on the ground and started examining the wound as reflex from my work as a vet tech. I saw she would need stitches and so I immediately got to work on cleaning and wrapping it to the point it would minimize blood loss while I got her to the nearest clinic. Someone called the police and luckily there was a police station across the street from it so two cops were there almost immediately. I was giving my statement to a cop as I was working on her and gave them my information as I needed to get her to a clinic. When I was giving my statement I heard the woman say my dog attacked her dog because of it’s aggressive nature of being a pitbull. Yes my dog is an american bully but she was obviously ignoring the dog and other people saw that. She was out of work and in recovery for almost a month. I personally kept her out of work for almost 2 months just to make myself feel better about her recovery but I knew I was just being paranoid. The first time she went back out we went to court as I was pressing charges on the woman for not only endangering my health and safety but her dog attacking mine. Normally I wouldn’t do that but because her dog actually did a decent amount of damage to my dog I felt like I had to. I’m really sorry for how long this is.

    I don’t think the Apple store or Nordstrom is pet friendly…
