The service dog only has to be on leash on private property if the owner of the private property wants the dog on leash. I took the time to ask everyone if they wanted Jethro on leash, they all said no. This includes the local mall, the local 24 Hour fitness, the grocery store, the bars, the restaurants and everywhere else I go. These people seem to be intelligent and have open minds. My question is why are the only people that want my dog on leash over zealous public servants on a power trip? Because of what I did in the military I can tell you public servants that behave like this do much more damage to this Country than my dog ever will. My question remains why do well trained dogs have to be on leash?
