A woman and her guide dog are once again the centre of controversy in Regina.
Ashley Nemeth, her guidedog and husband went for lunch at a sandwich shop on Albert Street on Thursday afternoon.
Nemeth says when one of the employees noticed her guide dog, that’s when the trouble started.
“After we got our food and we went and sat down, a gentleman came over to my husband actually and said ‘she’s not allowed to have her pet in here,'” Nemeth says.
“My husband said this is my service dog, I’m blind, this is my guide dog. And he said, ‘There’s no pets allowed, you’re going to have to leave.’ ”
This isn’t the first time Nemeth has encountered trouble of this nature.
Earlier this year, she was asked to leave a Regina Chucky Cheese because of her guide dog.
Nemeth says this event further shows why there needs to be more attention and focus on how people with impairments and/or disabilities are treated, most especially in business.
