"In the last few years, the questions and the looks I get have radically changed," Peter says. "Now wherever I go, I see fraudulent service dogs. I have been kicked out of businesses because employees think I'm an imposter."

Spread the word by telling your friends about this issue and ask them to pledge to do their part to stop service dog fraud.

---I was livid (and still ticked off) when my mom got a magazine in the mail on how to make your dog, any dog, a service dog. They (for now) are legally getting away with it. These companies are fraudulent and need to be stopped! The legitimate service dogs need to go through months, years of training. Legitimate service dogs are calm and obviously trained.

The lazy idiots that are using these "fake" items should be ashamed of themselves!

It must be a booming business because the magazine is bright colors and 15 pages of ID's, certificates, service dog tags, service dog vest, etc for sale. grrr!

I will be doing what I can to help stop these fraudulent, selfish people. They are wronging our disabled people that need and deserve to have a service dog and to not be discriminated against.

I will hopefully (soon) be training a 'legitimate' service dog for someone with a disability. I've been wanting to do this for years.

Thank you ALL that are taking the pledge :) You're very much appreciated.
