While Christine Giroux claims the dealer yelled at her to get out and was rude to her, he told TVA Nouvelles that events didn’t go that way.

“We had a nice chat with him and explained to him that the dog is not allowed to eat here. She could choose to take out. It’s a question of hygiene. So a dog is not a clean thing in a restaurant,” says the restaurant manager.

The latter claims he never attacked the customer. He defends himself by saying that he was not aware that it was an assistance dog.

“I never acknowledged that he was a service dog. Also, until the police arrived, she never indicated that it was a service dog. Personally, I thought that assistance dogs only existed for blind people or blind people,” claims the dealer.
