...

C. The provisions of Subsections A and B of this Section shall be inapplicable unless the person, as described in Subsections A and B of this Section, accompanied by a guide or service dog, shall furnish evidence as to the training of the dog, which evidence shall be obtained from the training agency or school by which the dog has been trained.

=====================

I wonder if a "Canine Good Citizen" diploma from a pet store counts as evidence as to the training at a qualified service school. I also wonder if having asthma counts as being physically disabled for the purposes of this law.
For someone who claims to be really smart you had a hard time with this one didn't you?

The law did not say it had to be a qualified service school. It states "from the training agency or school by which the dog has been trained". PetSmart has certified dog trainers in their "dog school" inside their store. We have trained a dog with them and I would be willing to bet Joe she's better behaved than you.

Furthermore, asthma is considered a physical disability. Yes, I did my homework on this one before you argue: #1. I have asthma. #2 I called my own physician and asked. #3 I live with a physician.

What is your real issue with this woman having her dog that she needs with her? Is it just so you can argue?
