I had a woman come in that was in a wheelchair. She had just gotten a Cavalier as a "therapy dog" (but what she wanted the dog to do sounded more like a service dog) that was "medically prescribed by her doctor". I helped her find all the puppy stuff she needed, and then she asked if we had training classes. I explained that we don't, but I recommended a few places. She explained that she needed in-home training since she had an auto-immune disorder and couldn't be around people (I don't know much about human auto-immune...but she was in a crowded store?). I said that I could recommend a few trainers that did in-home. When I gave her an (estimated) cost range of in-home trainers, she freaked out, and told me that they should give her a discount because she's disabled and this is a "medically prescribed" dog. Ummmm...no. She then asked for another discount at the register because she was disabled. Again...no.
