Service Dogs and Public Places
Posted on August 23, 2017 to Legal
As a result, we see many people in the stores, restaurants and shopping malls with dogs that we know cannot be service dogs.
It has become so problematic with people bringing their animals to public places that the Florida Legislature recently amended Florida Law making it a crime to misrepresent that your dog is a Service Dog.
Florida Statute Section 413.08(9) was amended July 1, 2015, to state that a person who misrepresents having a service animal commits a misdemeanor of the second degree.
