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.
Then these folks are wrong... I have no dog in the fight...

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.
