Re: “Loopholes in ADA Law Make "No Pets" Clauses Nearly Impossible to Enforce

I have a friend whose wife is severely allergic to dogs. He said he often has to take her to the ER because of it. Presumably she has allergic asthma and she encounters a surprise dog.
People can die because of asthma.
I have an extreme dog allergy. I get sick for 5 days if I'm exposed to a dog for more than 5 seconds. If I'm in a building where a dog is, and it isn't huge, I get very sick.
The well-intentioned ADA law is horrible for people with allergies. It gives them no refuge, because someone with a service dog can't be refused. Never mind that there are many places that allow dogs in general these days - you still can't legally exclude service dogs, in the name of not discriminating against people with disabilities.
