Out of no where, I get an email saying a passenger reported an incident. I had no major issues that day or recently so the only thing I can think of is driving off on a pax w a dog. It wasnt a service dog and i refuse to let them in my car.

But is that really a @@@@ing "incident"???? I do this all the time. Why are people so entirled to bring their stupid dog in MY car?!

I emailed them back twice since yesterday (got the email at 2 yesterday), but havent heard back. Anyone have advice?

Most of my riders with dogs have had small lap dogs but I had one rider with a big dog that looked like a wolf. That's when I added a lint roller to my trunk because there was dog hair everywhere!

You pretty much can't refuse a dog

Sucks, but that's just how it is.

The reasons why are long and complicated and I know you're probably confused thinking "wait, but it's my car. Don't I have rights?" Yeah.. about that. Let's just say... it's complicated.

Long story short all a paxhole has to do is complain and even the thought of the possibility of a legit service animal dog being refused is grounds for legal action and Fuber wants no part of that so they do the easiest thing (for them) which is to waitlist you.

If you want to "fight for your rights" you probably would win... but is it worth it? No. Waste of time and energy IMHO

In the future just take the dog

You must have missed the warningS. If uber explicitly tells you that you can and will be banned for refusing service animals, and even says it's better to bring them in your car instead of assuming they are not, and you still choose to refuse... well that's on you. Too much pride? Dog allergies? It's not my place to judge, but to me it sounds the same as , I know my car will smell like weed if I smoke but I'll still smoke and just hope that my next pax won't report me. And my advice, not that anyone asks, but it's my advice, I hate dogs in my car too... and if the dogs leaves so much as a couple hairs, I take a picture and collect my $20 cleaning fee from uber. Consider it a $20 tip. Tell them you are allergic to dog hair but you didn't want to refuse a service animal. Boom. $20 added

Unfortunately it takes three seperate drivers complaints on the same riders animal before a cleaning fee can be applied.

Yes. As others have already said just be ready to accept dogs. I have towels in my trunk they can sit on.

Beagles arent typically a service dog? Duh

Bad assumption but I still hope it works out for you.
