Service dog handlers face bitter pushback, kicked out of public places

November 22, 2017

Mike Rude, a veteran of nearly three decades with the Canadian Armed Forces, did not expect conflict when he went to the Valley Mall in Corner Brook, N.L., with his service dog, Spark.

Dale says they were OK with the pushback at first. They welcomed the chance to educate people, who were usually polite in their objections to the dog.

The Dale family had the support of the public, too, at one point.

"That's how we got Skipper," Dale said. "People donated and spread the word."

But once they had the dog and started going out in public, it was a different story.



A thousand miles you walked with me ,
 Through the fields and streams
  Down many a lonely place, On darkened  paths and streets
