    How do we know if the animal is a service animal or just a pet? I dont want some ******* putting their 100 pound long hair coat collie on my back seat.

    They must present the animal as a service animal.

    I’m allergic to cats and dogs. If they have service dog, can I still refuse? I can’t provide a safe ride if I’m allergic.

    Could I politely decline and explain my situation and help request a new trip for them?
    In this case I don’t even want the cancel fee.

    Agreed! But many animals are therapy animals and that’s not service pet. Is there identification they provide? Special collar?
    I’m not a pet expert but serverly allergic.

    It's an honour system. There's no ID.

    All I can say is good luck with that. If you get one you are by law required to take a service animal. Bring yourself a paper face masks if you are worried.

    In over 3000 trips I’ve never encountered it. But that’s solid advice! I’ll get 3M mask and keep in glove compartment and pray I don’t have allergic reaction if it happens. I would speak with the person requesting at arrival and explain, it they are persistent I would take them and pray for the best lol but I think someone with a service animal would understand they don’t want to impede on the drivers health, that’s a safety issue overall

    I would hope that when they order it would be assist. If you are on assist your best bet is to remove yourself off that option.

    I am not on uberassist solely for that reason , but if the person requesting understands my condition I would kindly recommend them to order Uber assist.

    Thanks for the mask advice I never thought to think of that but it is a good thing to have just in case.

    With Lyft you have to take the pet no matter what cos you can’t ask for documentation. Atleast with Uber you have the option of asking to see the documentation. If they don’t have one, then that’s it.

    I would say have both a mask and disposable rubber gloves. So when you wipe down the seats you don't aggravate the situation. It's not the dog itself most have an issue with. It's the dander that floats in the air and makes contact with the skin. Poodles are ok long as they don't lick you. They have hair and not fur. That's what I have been told.

    My sister has a service animal and it always has it's vest on as it's more of a pain when security in a mall or in any place that serves food will question unless they see it. It's just common sense for her.

    Basically with Lyft if someone shows up with chihuahua and says that it’s a service animal you take it without questions and that’s it. Even if you are allergic.

    So if I get a ping from The Jungle and some bro shows up with a snarling pit bull and says it’s a service animal, any suggestions?

    Just cancel as soon as you see the pet if you don't want to take it.

    What if I see dog and just keep driving. There's no proof that I refused service animal then.

    If you drive right by what are they really going to be able to say? I've taken small dogs and even a kitten before, but I don't give a ****. If someone thinks they're hopping in my car with a german shepard they can **** right off for bus fare.
