Uneducated ESA handler corners service dog at Walmart
Uneducated ESA handler corners service dog at Walmart
I have PTSD, PTSD is pretty much a chemical imbalance in the brain, PTSD can make someone think the worst of any situation, my first thought when the dog got too close was “omg, what if this dog is aggressive”
ADA, ESA are considered pets and do NOT have public access rights.
Walmart has never been and never will be pet friendly, and it does NOT vary from place to place, each and every walmart is not pet friendly, there are signs on the door that states no pets are allowed and only service animals are allowed, Walmart HAS to follow the laws, just because a manager allows then in, doesnt make it any less illegal, it’s still a federal crime. All walmart stores have to follow CDC, ADA and FDA.

From watching this video, doubt those people meant to inconvenience you. It definitely sucks to worry your helper might be distracted and stop working. Majority of people aren’t educated on service dogs.
I dont have a service dog, but personally, I don’t see anything wrong with bringing a non service dog into a store as long as they’re trained to handle the environment. I’m from Chicago. Downtown Chicago has dogs everywhere except for indoor only restaurants. I use to work at a retail store where dogs came in all the time. We never had anything happen. Dogs are always in every store.
Be careful of your demeanor around other dogs, you’ll imprint distrust and other negative behaviors. Yes, be watchful, but you have to be mindful of your own self actions as well. Just something I’ve learned and picked up on through behavioral science.
It’s always cringe when I see a dog in a vest that says "service dog" and "Emotional support". Like- no honey those r two different things.
Amazing vid! My SDIT has been doing public access now for I think 3 months SHE DOING SO GOOD! I’ve just teached her to stop leg bounces and scratching my self she dose jump if I don’t stop hahaha
‘Backed into a corner’ right and I’m the president of the United States. That dog didn’t even care about your dog. And yes I know not pet friendly blah blah. But still that dog did absolutely nothing. Also I wonder how you would react if someone was terrified of dogs? Would you be upset and exaggerate for a video or would you respect that persons fear like you want respect because it triggered an episode.
Yesterday had a fake service dog almost bit my service dog and then today someone had two dogs in pram barking at my dog they don’t realise they upset working dogs I’m thinking of stopping my dog been service dog because I am not having owners of fake service dog fretting to bash me
As a person with a ESA that I spent months training for severe anxiety attacks(so bad I’ve had seizures and ripped off my skin and hair)…this ESA handler makes me livid.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THE OTHER DOG WASNT A SERVICE DOG ? SO JUDGEMENTAL GEEZE!!
The little kid in the beginning wasn’t so bad. The voice was far away and it seemed the parent/guardian kept moving with the kid.
Small children can’t help but notice a dog in a place they probably aren’t used to seeing a dog. As a parent, those are the moments I use to teach about what NOT to do with animals they see wearing a vest like that 🙂
How is that a fake service animal if esa is not the same thing not required to have any training for an esa
"Put my life in danger" WOW. You are a crazy person. Sure the esa dog shouldnt be in a place that is not pet friendly or really anywhere thats not related to them. But to say that 12lb dog is even going to HURT let alone KILL, boy! that is a HUUUUUUGE stretch.
Not to mention its quite funny you mention they dont need their dog in the store but check it; YOU HAD HUMANS WITH YOU. So neither did you this time!!!
I put my ESA in a dog stroller with a cover. She can’t get out and no one can reach in.
Man, not a single comment encouraging you to chill out about the widdle dog. Makes me think you’re like curating the comments section or something…
Idk about where you live or if the laws are different state to state. All i know is in michigan ESA absolutely DOES have public access rights. So your boyfriend or whoever that told you that is incredibly false. But i will say that the handler of the esa dog you ran into shouldn’t have come anywhere near you. It’s distracting to your dog trying to work and it should have been distracting to the esa dog and handler if they were an actual esa. Sorry that happened. Some people really do ruin it for others.
My four-year-old son is autistic. I am in the process of getting him an ESA through an agency that trains service dogs and ESA. The ESA dogs are dogs who were not eligible for the SD program for one reason or another, however, they are still highly trained. The SD cost a good 40k in training costs. The ESA dogs are around 10-20k. So, still well trained animals that pass a canine good citizen before graduation. I’ve decided to go the ESA route for my boy because he doesn’t need the kind of support a SD would provide. But he still could benefit from support. His ESA is being trained to provide comfort and affection during his meltdowns and times of sensory distress, to be tolerant of being pet and hugged and touched very often to meet my boys sensory needs, and to remain calm even when he isn’t. He’s also intended to help my son’s sleep disturbances by being a companion in the room. This dog will also help teach independence and responsibility. I’m only saying all of this because I think it should be common practice. An ESA SHOULD be a well trained dog, just not as meticulously trained as a service dog. If there were stricter guidelines on what is required for an ESA then there wouldn’t be so much conflict in SDs and ESA coexisting together.
I have a service dog named River and I dislike when I try and take her to a store and there is a fake service dog or a ESA tying to lunge at her
No disrespect but esa’s and service animals are completely diffrent things they are not requierd to be trained and are just there to help there owners get through the day and emotionaly support them please uderstand this it could be a real esa just with no training since its not reqired for esa’s
I’m young and I have a SD in training and I’m scared to take him to any stores because of fake service dogs, and I have social enxiety so I can’t go to stores without him
This is late to the game. I just saw this while surfing. I respect what trained service dogs do.
There are entitled, ignorant people that think their dogs are just as capable as trained ones. They won’t recognize nor accept their dogs aren’t at the level of the trained in temperment & obedience. I’ve seen it.
This particular video puzzled me. It stated cornered the service dog. It didn’t. There was no confrontation with the owner/handler neither. The dog did jump up but was friendly. That in itself didn’t explain the difference. Maybe if explained don’t show energy & obedience that wouldd be better. Show not composed & better tempered.
I have a few medical conditions, vision disabiities, loss of hearing due to allergies, PTSD & diabetes. I had an emotional support dog & cat. PTSD isn’t a make-believe conditions. I was assaulted & someone tried to break into a hotel room staying at. Paranoia afraid of the dark or being someone alone can be an overexaggeration. Although it happened in the past, there’s never a guarantee won’t happen in the future. That’s what made is real & is legit.
There would be times wake straight out of sleep 3-4xs a night never getting a full night’s sleep & could be bottoming out if sugar was low. Both animals calmed me & alerted by meowing/barking when needed sugar. My pets enabled me to work & travel for my job if need be. So yep flew, rode in rentals, trains & buses with no issue were well-trained.
Use some form of holder can have around neck or chest rather than hand.
Result get jumpy vision. If using for liability difficult to see action. If can’t see a radius around dog only floor what’s it good for? Interesting my remarks would be for you to watch how close you walk in the aisles & next to walls as the dog is watching make sure isn’t getting squished you’re walking in aisle/walls. I had a lab & never would have been able to walk that tightly to items on my right side poor dog would be scratched up & stopped by columns.
I’ve been to multiple walmarts, there are the super walmarts that have full-fledged supermarket within, those that have select food items. The super ones are larger & more spacious. If you were at one of those, why were you so close to the other dog? It seemed you were relatively close rather than avoiding. That could have triggered a panic attack why risk it?
If I was fearful or worried about aggression from another dog I’d go as far away to do other shopping than come back to that aisle when gone. Even if didn’t have to go elsewhere, would go as far back from them until left the area.
Why are you assuming that their dog is an ESA? The vest says nothing of the sort. Besides, their dog wasn’t threatening and didn’t even notice your dog. You come off as pompous and whiny. Get over yourself. I bet your a democrat.
these videos make all esa handlers look bad. please know that not all of us are like that and that those with actual needs for an esa are NOT like this and have complete control over their dogs. kinda sick of these videos labeling all of us as bad people. also tired of "registration" scams…
OH MY GOSH these people are making ESA owners look bad! They should know better then to take it into Walmart and other public areas especially when the dogs are not service dogs
i need to know how i can get $2,500 CA so i can get a service dog for my ADHD and my meltdowns can someone please tell me how i can convince my mum to let me get a puppy and train it to be a service dog
She was terrified of that small tiny dog??
ok ngl its kinda weird how similar our voices r and man our government needs to educate the young about service animals in schools like really…this needs to be a thing taught in elementry and middle school
ESA’s are allowed in public
My mom’s Friend has an esa ID and for some reason the ID is saying she’s allowed to take him anywhere
I didnt really see the other dog misbehave why was there a problem
Get of your high horse and dont instigate the problem…..ESA animals dont have to be trained but discipline they should be…
esa’s have general public access and dft access, meaning they can go anywhere you go same with a service dog
"Switch and get 100$" OFF TOPIC BUT WHERE CAN I GET ITT-
I’m sorry that it seems you’ve had bad experiences with ESA dogs. My wife and I train ESA dogs, and interestingly I do much of the same as far as protecting my dog around other dogs. Our dogs are registered and protected by federal law.
While I share in your outrage about people slapping an esa vest on their pet and entering public spaces such as Walmart. Some things to consider not every ESA dog is a fake, that kind of thinking is to put it politely uneducated!, real ESA dogs and owners should use common sense and do, real ESA Dogs while not SA provide a service to their owners and are every bit as important.
Lastly my dogs I’ve trained have NEVER started or been involved in any fights or bitings.. I have however been harassed by "real SA owners" inrestingly enough the last one was at Walmart it took me telling them I would get the Walmart management and local police involved it they didn’t leave us alone.
Maybe her dog is still in training but that’s no way to train maybe she don’t have enough money to get professional trainer or maybe it’s their first time in the store why didn’t u go talk to them about their wait was it a service dog or was it an ESA or was it a therapy dog either way these are all possible answers on why it’s not fully trained or w.e
I have an esa. I was allowed to bring her to my counseling appointment with the permission of my counselors boss. My dog also has basic training and isnt aggressive. Id never take her anywhere without permission or if she miss behaved.
I hate people that just bring their "esa" into places like this
ADA service dogs are cover under the ADA Law (42 U.S.C)title ll and lll and are prohibit discrimination from entering establishment.
They don’t need certification.
These dogs are working dogs .Period.
People that have emotional support pets…the word is pet are not covered under the disability act, period.
Hotels, restaurants and stores can refuse a person entering an establishment with an esa pet.
I can buy a cert and jacket for my extremely well trained pet and call it a service dog. But that is lying and illegal!
States are cracking down on these esa pets and giving fines out to people who claim it’s a service animal. The federal law in 2020 just passed that airlines do NOT have to treat esa pets as service dogs .And thank goodness to because these fake "service " dogs and owners are making extremely hard on those with REAL SERVICE DOGS!
So while I’m sympathetic to those in need of an esa pet. Please stop saying it’s a ADA service animal!!
I have taught my kids that you ignore the service dog. You can tell the owner they are cute or that you like their dog but NEVER touch the dog! Speak directly to the owner and make no gesture to the dog at all! I have an ESA cat and they know that if he is with me around the house to not mess with him cuz he is helping mommy. There needs to be more education about service dogs and working animals. Plus it is never okay to touch even a non-working dog or animal without asking the owner first.
BTW I love your videos
But what if the Emotional Support Animal does have the required training of a Service Dog?
So you think your more educated for having a service doggy lol?
Not all Esa’s are fake I’m getting one because my docter recommend it for my severe anxiety and panic attacks
Thank you for ruining what an ESA animal is truly intended to do and what they are you freaking idiot
It’s so annoying when people act like ESAs count as service dogs. There’s a whole website that offers ESA letters stating that they can go in public even though they can’t, there was even an ad I got a few minutes ago. It’s ridiculous.
Hope they know that esa animals are not service animals
It’s so embarrassing to say I have an ESA because of this because people think we all take out dogs to stores they shouldn’t be in even if she’s only ever been in a PetSmart people like this drive me insane even in pet friendly stores i made sure my girl was trained so if there was a service dog inside we wouldn’t be a distraction
I’m a little confused as why you were getting an attack? It didn’t seem aggressive? Or maybe that’s what you were scared of? I’ve seen fake service dogs and how they’re aggressive, so i’d understand if that was the case
