Most dogs are good dogs.

Most of a person's encounter with dogs are good encounters. However it's very few bad encounters that cause a lot of problems. The rules need to be followed and should be enforced. It can be difficult to determine which dog is good which is not. So the rules and laws have to applied across the board.
This is not unusual. Airline travelers are subject to searches, delays, and etc. because of a very few bad guys. We spend billions of dollars to week out the few. And the rules are applied across the board.

Someone here pointed out you can get a certificate for $57 if you consider yourself certifiable. And someone else pointed out we share 70% of our DNA with Oak Trees.

There are times when I think my husband would agree--I'm both dumb as a stump AND certifiable.

Very interesting topic; agree dogs should be kept under control. Owners should scoop! Those super-long leashes are a bane IMHO.

I always took my dog with me when we camped and was always certain to pick up after him. Maybe that's why no one there would ever shake my hand.

Then I discovered sandwich bags.

If you wish, you can buy a certificate for $57 over the internet, if you consider yourself certifiable.
BTW: We share 70% of our DNA with Oak trees. Nothing is more deceptive than the implications of partial truths or facts out of context.
I am told that 80% of Murderers in North America had consumed potatoes within 24 hours prior to the commission of their crimes?
Well no you can't take a Pet therapy certified dog places other than any dog can go except for nursing homes, hospitals and so on that have invited them to come. They are not service dogs. You can buy anything on the internet but a true pet therapy dog must be trained, tested, certified and insured.
Yeah the % DNA means nothing much but dogs are not just domesticated wolves.
Most dog problems are bad owners. Which includes poor training and poor or inappropriate breed selection for whatever task or environment the pet is expected to be exposed to. I would be willing to bet that "most" of these dogs involved in these aggressive attacks have a history of such and the owners are fully aware of potential problems but chose to ignore them.

I did see where that site will apparently sell you a certificate for service, support, and therapy dogs without any proof that the dog was trained for such duty. Like the online Diplomas that are sold, guess if you can find someone that accepts them as real then they will work.
Most places I worked with in the past had a list of the pet therapy organizations that they accepted and I would never take my pet into such a place without having him insured. And you are not going to get him insured unless you have him trained and certified by a reputable organization.

It be interesting to know if anyone that has purchased one of these certificates actually got an airline to accept it.

There is some confusion as to terms, and it is my fault. I did not use the term "therapy dog"...I used the term "pet as a therapist", somewhat cynically referring to emotional support animals. Subtlety and sarcasm are two things often lost in print, especially when attempting to combine the two. Please pardon the confusion.
IMO,Real service dogs do have a legitimate purpose, and it was not my intention to comment on "therapy dogs".
"Emotional support dogs" are apparently afforded most of the same privileges as "service dogs", though through different sanctions according to the quoted website.
