    if I sat next to a Dog I wouldn’t me upset. If a dog that size is next to me I would expect it’s touching me and I would pet it. I would be pissed if someone told me not to touch their oversized service dog that I didn’t know was going to be seated next to me.

    But the dog was being a problem. Just the simple fact that a Great Dane is flying for free in a space that was not meant to have an animal there is the problem. Thats why there was a fight because some poor saps who paid money for a plane ticket won the unlucky draw of sitting next to an asshole couple bringing a Great Dane on a plane under the guise it being their service dog.


    Fuck them. They got what they wanted. Click bait title with the key words "Punch dog + Punch Pregnant Women" and hordes of internet retards reading those those headlines already freaking out without actually knowing what happened and how it escalated. I wouldn't trust the words of anyone who uses a Great Dane as a service dog and gives no fucks about bringing the dog on a plane even though there is absolutely no reason what so ever that dog is needed for flying. The dude who was deaf tackled and detained the guy for police. Why the fuck does a deaf guy who has the power to detained another human being need a Great Dane as a service dog for flying?

    "The argument continued as the two couples departed the plane and Silvay tackled Timothy Manley, according to police. Silvay admitted in the police report to tackling Timothy, saying he did so in order to detain him until police arrived."

    Could the dog hear? If so, he was probably their translator. Don't be a speciesist.

    What do you have against great Danes?
    Any dog smaller than a German shepherd is not a dog and qualifies as a rat.

    The bill would update the Air Carrier Access Act definition of service animal to the Department of Justice’s definition of service animal applied under the Americans with Disabilities Act, removing “emotional support animals” from planes. Service animals would have to have service animal training.

    Individuals making false statements about their pet or emotional support animal being a “service animal” could be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison.

    i'd like to see the bill passed.

    You'd think a dog wiht a longer expected life span would be beneficial.

    It needs to pass. But the DoJ also needs to require some sort of certification or license to be called a service animal. As it is now, all a person has to do is claim their dog is trained to help them with a disability. All they have to do is say it.

    It is animal cruelty to keep these animals on a plane. They cannot move around, nor pee.



    I love Bryce Dallas Howard.

    If the animal is truly an emotional support animal, an airplane is probably where it's needed as some people get very anxious on planes.

    What happens when they sit next to someone who has a real fear of dogs?

    I would pay extra to sit next to a dog instead of a person.

    No, that is for an emotional support animal. A service animal under the definition of the DoJ has to be

    "individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability."
    https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/28/36.104

    In tthe link i posted earlier, the bill proposes "individuals making false statements about their pet or emotional support animal being a “service animal” could be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison."

    Small dogs are for women and pansies, unless it's a Jack Russell, then you get a pass.

    What I said was correct. What you quoted is correct as well, but all one has to do is SAY their dog is trained to help with a disability. There’s no proof required.

    Came in here to post this link. "Emotional support" animals are not service dogs.

    This is wrong on many levels.

    There is no official registry of service dogs because the ADA specifically states that service dogs are not required to be registered in any way. A service dog is defined by one and only one criteria - that it be trained to perform a specific task for a person with a disability. That's it. No paperwork, no doctor, no therapist, no registration.
