    Since when does a Great Dane qualify as a service dog? Where the fuck did it sit?

    Why is everyone entitled to a service dog? This couple is deaf, not blind. Why do these fucks expect everyone to deal with their shit?

    Honestly, I don’t believe all the details of the story. I could totally see me getting pissed and pushing the dog away from me and these assholes crying that I punched it.

    Seriously, there’s needs to be size restrictions on service dogs for public transportation.

    Lol... there needs to be an outrage porn thread for this stuff.

    That does seem excessive , a smaller dog would be better.

    Obviously the dog translates using sign language to them. And great danes have big fingers so signs are easier to read. What's so hard to understand?

    Ever since I saw In an old UFC embedded a fighters (fake) service dog and learned its in 90% cases nothing but a trick to get your dog on a plane, Im baffled why the rules remain the same. Everyone and their mom can get their dog licensed as a "service" or "emotional support" dog. Its pathetic,no regulations whatsoever.
    And mind you, have nothing against dogs,love em. But ITs annoying on a plane cause most owners are inconsiderate. I would let dogs on a plane but specify a certain compartment/separated seats specifically for dog owners and let other people enjoy their flights.

    You sound like an asshole. My bro is deaf and has a service dog. Its not a great dane. Shes a black lab but he does absoulutely need her. Hearing impairment is a disability just like vision. So some people require them. The dog alerts him for lots of things. Doorbell ringing, smoke alarm, buzzer on microwave/stove etc. Morning alarms. Car horns.

    Don't be a dumbass dude.

    I don't care if it's great or not. It's a dane, so it gets a pass from me.

    any dog can be a service dog. you sound like a complete moron.


    the report also says the man punched the owner, who is a deaf pregnant woman, and was subsequently tackled and held down by her partner.

    My wife’s uncle’s girlfriend is partially deaf and she has a little black miniature poodle as her service dog. It seems strange in her case because she can still hear just a little bit, but the dog is for things like smoke alarms and shit like that I guess.

    In any event, restrictions on the size of a service dog seem somewhat arbitrary. If a service dog is too large to sit on your lap or whatever then just make the passenger buy it a seat, which I believe is the policy, right? So if that’s the case, then who cares? I’d much rather sit next to a Great Dane than an enormous fat person.

    lol at punching the dog wtf. I do agree a great dane on a flight is a bit much. Cannot see how it could even sit comfortably.

    Yeah, she goes around causing people to almost die, but they survive after their near death experiences.

    In this case it’s not about the journey, it’s about the destination. The service dog is needed wherever the person is heading to.
