Sorry your weekend didn't turn out the way you had planned. I am so happy that Remington is such a smart boy and is there for you. Hoping your boss will allow him to accompany you to work too. Seems like a medical necessity at this point, at least until you stabilize things. Good Boy Remi!

Wouldn't your boss be legally required to allow you to bring your service dog to work? I did a quick Internet search and couldn't find anything specifically pertaining to taking a service dog to work with you... But I did find info about how service animals don't even need licensing, they just need to be trained to be a service animal. I thought that was interesting! If I were in your situation I would make some calls and see what your rights are as far as taking him to work. Hopefully, your boss will just agree, but if not you could present him with the legal information.

Thank you all so much for the well wishes. I am still not able to get over the person in that car almost hitting us on Saturday. I think I have accepted averything else, but I cannot seem to get the image of her car coming toward us and being so close to Remington... I Have had nightmares about him getting hit by the car over and over.

I am a teacher, and his argument is that there are students who are scared of dogs, and others have allergies... I am scared to death of losing my job, as it is just me... I am not married or anything... I would be in bad shape trying to make car payments, house payments, oh and we cannot forget Sallie Mae.

I know you don't want to stir things up at work or risk losing your job or have a tense relationship with coworkers, but you should look into the laws in your area about service dogs. You may have to have him "certified" if he is not already. Maybe your boss will let you have a trial period of bringing Remington into class with you. If he can curl up on a bed in the corner of the classroom and if everyone can ignore him (that may be the hardest of all) it seems that he shouldn't be a problem. Good luck.
I hope your memory of the car almost hitting you fades quickly. I know how upsetting it can be to re-live a traumatic experience like that.

I have looked into getting a service dog before, and I have read that people with invisible illnesses do sometimes have a rough time with getting access.
Usually you want to certify you dog, video tape the certification process, and if an access permit is required get one of those too.

I read that you should also expect that it could be very likely to have to go to court over being denied access if you need access and it wont be granted.

The whole thing kinda turned me off the idea.

I would think that if you were taking your dog into a school you would want some sort of liability insurance to help make your boss feel better?

Schools are particularly aware of ADA requirements -- and the penalties for noncompliance. Quotes direct from the ADA Revised Rules on Service Animals 2010 indicate that your boss doesn't have a leg to stand on. Note the second item in particular:

Quote:
When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, only limited inquiries are allowed. Staff may ask two questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform. Staff cannot ask about the person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.

Allergies and fear of dogs are not valid reasons for denying access or refusing service to people using service animals. When a person who is allergic to dog dander and a person who uses a service animal must spend time in the same room or facility, for example, in a school classroom or at a homeless shelter, they both should be accommodated by assigning them, if possible, to different locations within the room or different rooms in the facility.
A diabetic alert dog seems pretty ironclad to me. The questions is, how is Remi with kids?

Any school that accepts federal$$$ has to follow the Disabilities Act. This may be a private school.

I suggest you contact the American Diabetes Assn. for more info and guidance. Maybe even legal help.

Goodness, I would have certainly been MUCH more happy to be at school if there had been dogs involved; ESPECIALLY a Standard Poodle! Hope this works out for you (and Remi, too, he would probably love the attention.) Glad that you are doing all right after your stressful weekend. Too bad you couldn't get that women's license plate number...

There was a woman who worked for the district as a sub. She had a service dog, and there were some major problems with it. You all know I love dogs, but I could not be in a room with her, as her dog smelled to high heaven. Between her poor judgement and issues with a stinky dog, it has made it very hard for anyone else.

I have to laugh, because before I was moved into the building, I had a portable outside.. When I did a Saturday clinic, I had huge turn out, because I would bring Remington.. The kids loved him, and he loved to see them... They said that they always hated to leave because it hurt his feelings... THey would get massive amounts of work done.. Grades were higher and all that great stuff. Remington would stand and look out the window and watch them leave... It was too funny.
