I am considering inviting my disabled co-worker to a party at my home, and asking her to not bring her service dog. Her dog has repeatedly been too aggressive with my dog—mounting him and nipping at him. This co-worker often struggles to manage her service dog’s behavior around my dog, and previously, when I directly addressed this with her she replied, “He just really wants to play.” This is really challenging to my dog, who has previously been mauled by another dog, so I just keep him away from hers. I’m hosting a party with co-workers and would like to have my dog out to interact with others. Is it OK for me to ask her to not bring her service dog?
