His breed has never been a problem before, and I dont expect it in the future. There isnt a ban here, and I was lucky enough to see a pitbull PTSD once named Daisy May. The man and has dog had been working/living in Tennessee for 9 years. She was also black, and I understand what you mean by the black dog thing. Remembering back people did seem to cower more and move away from them than people do when I am out and about with my dog. He also kept her just on leash and she wore a orange bandana. So this may have been more of a problem?
In your experience is it more accepting to others for the dog to be fully geared, say a backpack or vest and everything? Versus a collar and leash or headcollar and leash? I am a very nervous person, and though I understand having a service dog is like asking for attention in a way, I do like as little confrontation as possible. I dont mind people looking, its mainly when people get in an aggressive manner. E\ample, someone told me because I have such a large dog I shouldnt walk him without a muzzle in a public park and was really hateful and rude about it.

Riley potties on command. And has known that almost since he could walk lol. As he was born in this house and since he could walk we would take all the puppies downstairs in the grass until they pottied every hour or so.

My hearing dog wore a orange vest that had hearing dog printed on it his collar and leash did too, and when I took him into to stores I still was stopped and asked what used my dog for!! Some people asked if I was blind! LOL There will always be some people asking you stupid questions . My hearing dog wore a gentle leader and a lot of people thought it was a muzzle and would back away when they saw my dog. One woman asked my daughter and me if my dog could breath with it in!! WTF!! I was once asked if my dog bite and I said "Yes, all dogs will bite if given a reason to."
I know what you mean but getting rude remarks , I just do not let it get to me. I was a dressing room with my hearing dog and I was told that another customer was afraid of dogs and i should leave the dressing room, I was with adult daughter helping her watch her child. I told the employes I would not move, that it was the customer that had to move if she does not like dogs. You should find out what your rights are , so people can't give you a hard time. Once your dog is trained to be a service dog you should be able to bring him to any store. I got my dog from NEADS and they did not uses pitbulls as too many people are afraid of them and it would cause a lot of problem trying to go out with it. So you really need to know know all your rights in case you question about your dog.
