    This is a terrific article! I had a service dog some years ago, and you are absolutely right about all of the obligations and costs of having a service dog.
    However, there is one aspect of your article which is not correct. It is not necessary to have a “certificate” of some sort in order to take one’s service dog to public venues. This is federal law. It is described in the American’s with Disabilities Act.

      Thank you for your support and the correction of my error! Yes, dogs are wonderful, but we have to remember the responsibility that comes with them.
