If he is an installer I can see where the service dog might be an issue going into homes with other dogs or severely allergic owners but I have to believe he could be assigned to install at homes without dogs or people with allergy issues.

Wounded vets should be accommodated is at all possible or be found a position within an organization that can accommodate their needs.

This guy wants to work and his PTSD is a result of his service. Everything should be done for those who have served their country. Shame on Cincinnati Bell.

The guy is an installer. I'm all for accommodating vets but that's a ridiculous expectation to be able to take a pet into other people's homes.

This "service dog" stuff is getting ridiculous. Anyone who can get a doctors note about depression or anxiety wants to have their "service dog" with them everywhere.

Just last night I was at a huge church festival and a my buddy's kid got yelled at for petting a "service dog". If you need a dog with you constantly just to exist then a church festival probably isn't a great place to go and especially not kiddie land where there are a thousand dog loving kids running around.

My dog would not take kindly to another dog in the house, nor do I want a strange dog in my house.

RE: Cincinnati Bell
Do we even know if he would be taking the dog into the house. If he has a van he could say in the van when he is at the home. Just run the engine and air for the dog. There are ways around this. We have trained service dogs for vets and you just have to think about the issues and work thru them with the dog and the owner.

RE: Cincinnati Bell
Plus technically it is not a service dog it is a emotional support dog.There are different rule for each. A service dog has to perform a task. Such as open doors or pick thing up or be the persons eyes and such.

If someone brings a support dog into my house, it will be dogmaggeddon...my bulldog was coined "the meat missle" by Eastside for a reason and her brother the 165 lb Dane puppy is part mustang and part crocodile. Bring Fido in my pad without body armor and the dog will need an emotional support dog too. 03-lmfao

RE: Cincinnati Bell
My parish has a veteran who attends who has a "companion" dog, pretty much as is being described here. She (the vet) got into it pretty hard with another parishioner who actually trains bone fide "Service Animals": guide dogs, etc... The vet (who, PTSD aside is not the most stable person) gets pretty bothered that restaurants do not accord her dog privileges like the full "service animals" and often refuse the dog entrance.

It's a nice enough dog and fairly well behaved, but is clearly NOT...and never will be...a bone fide "Service Animal." You can't tell the dog's owner that, though. The dog is an invaluable companion but simply does not have the temperament to be a Service Animal. To be fair, not many dogs do.

It's like I may play rec softball, but that doesn't make me a big-league ball player.
